The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck
It's been 110 years since Frederick Warne published Beatrix Potter's very first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit , and in celebration, we are delighted to be publishing special editions of her entire body of work. Unlike the traditional little white books, these editions have delightful colourful covers and specially designed endpapers. And to make them extra special, we have included a publisher's note to tell you all about the history of how each book came to be.
Poor Jemima. All she wants to do is lay her eggs in peace, and be allowed to hatch them herself. At last she flies off and finds the perfect place. But little does the silly duck know, the charming gentleman who has lent her his woodshed is busily planning a delicious meal of ...roast duck! The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck is number nine in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books.
