Book 32 - The Tale of Peter Rabbit #100daysofbooks (verdict: a classic and still makes me anxious!)

Day 32. I remember The Tale of Peter Rabbit really well even though I probably haven't read it in nearly 30 years, and it still makes me anxious. The story conveys how enormous the McGregors' yard is, and the terror of being lost in it and at risk of being caught for pie! Even knowing that Peter makes it out doesn't help. Maybe that's why this is such a classic story. Of course, the moral of the tale is 'listen to what your mother tells you'. The illustrations are quite lovely, too.

Master A's verdict: Paid attention despite the fact it's probably a bit long for his age.
