The Kim Dong Publishing House, a publisher of children’s books, has released a book collection featuring the world’s most famous rabbit, Peter Rabbit.
A fictional anthropomorphic character in various children’s stories written by English author and illustrator Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit first appeared in The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1902 and then in five more books between 1904 and 1912.
The newly-released Vietnamese translation, A Very Naughty Rabbit: Tales of Mayhem and Mischief, has 11 of the 23 classic Peter Rabbit stories written by Potter.
Each tale is followed by humorous letters written by the author in the style of the characters.
The publishing house has also released The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit by Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson.
While The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit (2012) featured in the New York Times Bestseller list twice, The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit (2013) is heart-warming, funny and exciting.
As Thompson writes the tales with dry humour, similar to Potter’s own style, she has been considered the perfect choice for writing the new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published by Potter’s first publisher, Frederick Warne, 110 years after the first story was published. The delightful illustrations were created by Eleanor Taylor.
