Peter Rabbit's A B S

Beatrix Potter, Author Frederick Warne and Company $4.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-7232-3423-4
Selected pictures of Potter's works has been packaged here to suit the ABC format. Beneath the illustrations are paraphrases and quotes about items pictured. ""C is for carrot'' shows art from The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit, and ``This is a nice gentle Rabbit. His mother has given him a carrot.'' At the end of the alphabetwherein reside the difficult letters with which all ABC creators contendquotes are abandoned completely. With a picture from The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is a mild ``w is for washing;'' the phrase ``x is in fox'' only lamely explains the picture from The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, of the title character walking with a fox. The book lacks integrity as an alphabet book and works better as a sampler of the treats available in the original books. Ages 1-5. (August)
