Since he first hopped into Beatrix Potter’s imagination, Peter Rabbit has
become one of her most popular and cherished characters. In the 120
years since the young bunny appeared in the first publication of
The Tale of Peter Rabbit, his mischievous antics have endeared him to
generations of readers, both children and adults alike.
Published in 1926 by Frederick Warne, the book features an imaginative
narrative as well as charming illustrations created by its gifted creator.
Beatrix Potter’s talents continue to endure in the twenty-first century,
which is why in 2022 we are paying tribute to the 120th anniversary of
the first publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit with a UK £5 coin.
