Do you know that feeling? As soon as the cold season waits around the corner you get double as traditional and reminisce about past Christmases? And the best thing -really- were being a child again…
Emma Thompson makes it possible. A few years back the Oscar-winning actress received the invitation to write a new adventure of Peter Rabbit, the splendid stories and drawings first created by Beatrix Potter in 1893. The invitation came in form of a half eaten radish via mail, and was sent by publisher Frederick Warne. And write a new adventure she did. Yet, she wouldn’t be an actress couldn’t she speak. Thus, Thompson made use of her trained and inspiriting voice and decided to narrate through her story and along the wonderful drawings of Peter Rabbit.
Christmas day itself is special – also in the realm of animals…
