Publisher's Summary

One of the most beloved characters in children's literature, Peter Cottontail is up to his long-whiskered nose in rib-tickling escapades in this delightful classic. With gentle charm and humor, famed storyteller Thornton W. Burgess draws young listeners into the timeless world of the Green Forest, the Smiling Pool, and the Purple Mountains.

Warmth and whimsy are the order of the day as Peter discovers the folly of changing his name, outwits the ever-hungry Reddy Fox, manages a number of hare's-breadth escapes and finally makes an ill-advised decision to hibernate - as Johnny Chuck and other woodland creatures do. The silliness of trying to do what nature never intended is one of the gentle morals of these adventures that combine the fun of a good story with little lessons about wildlife, the environment, and being true to one's self.

This unabridged childhood classic will delight young listeners today just as it did their parents and grandparents, narrated by noted actress Marian Seldes.

Meh.

My 5 yr old said it was ok. I honestly could pick different books for my kid, but it's a good book to make u fall asleep. Some narrators just have those Types of voices, lol
