This book is a work of fantasy and is intended for primary readers. Peter Rabbit was warned by his mother not to get into mischief. Peter ventures into a garden where he is spotted by the farmer, Mr. McGregor. Peter barely escapes and later learns his lesson when he returns home and must suffer the consequences of misbehaving.
I rated this book five stars because it was one of my favorite books to read when I was younger. The illustrations, although small, bare great detail and give you a sense of being in the story. The way the text was written also gives you the feeling that you are in the story. The plot is different and the idea of four rabbits that can talk makes this a work of fantasy. Children enjoy reading book that stretch the imagination. The main character Peter is an interesting, mischievous character and he fits well in this story about learning your lesson. Mrs. Rabbit is a strong authority figure in the book and children may relate her to their parents, guardians, or teachers. This story teaches the lesson that you should listen and stay out of trouble or you will suffer consequences. This makes this a good book to read to children when you want them understand why they should always listen.
