Beloved tale of Peter Rabbit's adventures in Mr. McGregor's garden.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This French version is somewhat better than the condensed English version I just read. It doesn't seem to have cut anything out. However, something is lost in translation. The charm of Potter's original words just isn't here.

I need to track down a copy of the original English version.

Premise: 3/5
