In The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, a new tale written by Emma
Thompson, Peter's adventures take him beyond the boundaries of Mr
McGregor's garden all the way to Scotland. Here he meets the gentle giant
Finlay McBurney, a distant Scottish relative, and much entertainment
Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, is a long time
admirer of Beatrix Potter's tales. She has a talent for creating engaging
narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter's own and is the perfect
choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published 110 years
after the original.
Emma was inspired to set the tale in Scotland by her knowledge of Beatrix's
childhood holidays there.
