    Not sure how I missed this when it came out, but it's a clever continuation of Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit tales, written by actress Emma Thompson and featuring Peter's cousin Benjamin Bunny. Her story adaptation is faithful to the original and the artistry of illustrator Eleanor Taylor is virtually indistinguishable from that of Potter. The introduction of William, the Christmas turkey who doesn't want to be eaten, is a cute addition to her cast of characters. Charming little story.

    This is beautifully illustrated and written in a style faithful to Beatrix Potter, as was Thompson's first. This second story is set just before Christmas, when Peter and Benjamin happen upon William the turkey who proudly declares that the McGregor's are 'having him for dinner'... Can they save the proud bird from his fate? I read this as an adult, to become familiar with the story, but was struck that this could be awkward for some parents reading it to their children, having to talk about the This is beautifully illustrated and written in a style faithful to Beatrix Potter, as was Thompson's first.

I read this as an adult, to become familiar with the story, but was struck that this could be awkward for some parents reading it to their children, having to talk about the fact (nevertheless true) that some animals are killed for us to then eat. It's a lighthearted story but one to ponder on before reading with your child - are you ready for that discussion?

    Stop punishing meat eaters!!!! I’m sick of reading children’s stories where people who fatten up turkeys for thanksgiving or Christmas are the bad guys!!!! The “good guys” help the turkey escape, and then the “bad guys” eat nothing but scraps for their holiday feast. C’mon already... I actually want to get rid of this book, but the pictures are too pretty - and the kids unfortunately seemed to be in favour of saving the turkey.

Genre: Traditional Literature and Picture Book This is a traditional literature book because it’s based on the characters from the classic English Tale of Peter Rabbit, who’s graced the bedsides of generations of kids. This is a picture book because each page is adorned with wonderfully illustrated images to accompany the text. Bookshelf Mentor Writing Traits: Conventions: The story is written in proper English. It uses italics, different sizes of font, and occasionally capitalizes every letter in a word to set the tone of the characters. Presentation: The appearance of each page is relaxing and comfortable like good classic English children’s literature is. This book would be a great Christmas story or for a class on traditional literature.

    Beatrix Potter had a very particular style of portraying her characters and telling their stories - both in words and in her drawings, which is so unique and impossible to imitate. The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit is a decent attempt to expand the Peter Rabbit universe with a new story, focusing on a turkey named William who Peter and Benjamin are trying to save from ending up as Mr. and Mrs. McGregor’s Christmas dinner.

    This is quite a fun tale for Christmas and easily transports you back to the original stories, both in text and the beautiful illustrations. It continues the somewhat dark theme of Mr McGregor wanting to eat the characters for dinner. In this instance it is William the turkey, currently enjoying some fine dinners to fatten him up, who is on the menu for Christmas Day. As a parent, William provides a great character to provide a posh voice for and his eventual realisation that he is to be "roaste This is quite a fun tale for Christmas and easily transports you back to the original stories, both in text and the beautiful illustrations.

Overall quite a traditional story, but that's as it should be.

    Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny save their turkey friend from the chopping block for Mr. McGregor's Christmas dinner. It was charming and engaging and not too long, and while the topic and humor weren't 100% in line with the way I imagine Beatrix Potter would have done things, it was still a fun story. The illustrations were beautifully done in the style of Beatrix Potter—not exactly the same, of course, but they have the same feel.

    3.5 stars. The story in this second book was stronger than The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, due largely to the strong characterization of William the turkey, a new character added to Beatrix Potter's world. The plot isn't especially original--Peter and cousin Benjamin try to help William escape the Christmas dinner table. The illustrations by Eleanor Taylor were, once again, strong. Overall, I liked this book better than the first. 3.5 stars.

    Maybe more of a 3.5 stars... A Cute, festive story of Peter Rabbit from Emma Thompson. Not quite as good at the original books by Beatrix Potter, that I had read through my childhood, still a cute revisit though. The illustrations were cute and very colourful.

    Lovely illustrations true to Beatrix Potter's style, make this a great story, but perhaps one for children who are old enough to understand that people do eat animals.

    Delightful addition to the Peter Rabbit tales, albeit by a different author. After reading it, I noticed there was a CD in the back of the book with the author reading the story, so I checked it out and listened. Delightful.

    Emma Thompson adds cleverly, respectfully and amusedly to the stories about Peter Rabbit. It's Christmas time, and Peter and his cousin Benjamin Bunny become involved with the lot of William the turkey. Eleanor Taylor's illustrations also fit neatly with the tradition, while she uses an own style. Words and pictures combine to create an enjoyable tale which raises some questions about our festivities - although that makes it sound too serious: the tale remains great fun.

    The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson, illustrated by Eleanor Taylor – inspired by the original tales of Beatrix Potter – Wow, such a beautifully illustrated story! I love everything about this book, the classic touch, thick paper, illustrations, special story about a turkey, solution for saving a life and more, quite recommended. I was a little concerned about Emma Thompson creating a book but enjoyed hearing her voice in my head as I read this aloud to my son…

    This was a darling Christmas picture book, and we were delighted to discover that our copy came with an audio recording of Emma Thompson reading her story in her enchanting British accent. In the style of the timeless Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, Emma Thompson has written an endearing tale about Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny who work together to save William, the Christmas turkey. Great start to our 24 days of Christmas stories! I got our copy through the library.

    Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin Bunny want to resuce their friend Tom Turkey from being Christmas dinner. He thinks he's Mrs McGregor's favorite because he gets all the nice and yummy foods but Peter and Benjamin tells him the real reason why. They help him 'hide' when Mr McGregor come after him. This tale is a very charming animal Christmas tale. Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin Bunny want to resuce their friend Tom Turkey from being Christmas dinner.

    I think it would be a daunting job to try to continue Beatrix Potter's tales. Thompson wrote a good story, and the illustrations were nice, but neither the writing nor the illustrations were quite up to Beatrix Potter standard. Still a cute story for Christmas.

    3.5 stars. This is a Christmas story told in England so I thought it was a little funny that it included a turkey. The CD when Emma reads it is pretty funny! :) I liked it but was expecting more around Peter Rabbit.

    This is a lovely addition to the Potter Peter Rabbit series. Emma Thompson does a great job with keeping in the tradition of Beatrix Potter. The illustrations were spot-on using watercolors to mute the colors similar to the original series.
