Beatrix Potter published The Tale of Peter Rabbit on 16 December 1901. Over one hundred years later the book is a children’s classic and Peter Rabbit one of the most famous bunnies in literature. She was right to suspect she was on to something good.
This got us thinking about the remarkable popularity of hare and rabbit characters in fiction and their ability to burrow their way into the heart of literary classics. In honour of the anniversary of Beatrix Potter creating a rabbit icon, we’ve made rabbit chair for reading rabiit stories.
