An old favorite is returning to television - the BBC has announced that Peter Rabbit and friends will be making an appearance in 2011 in 52 new episodes. The new episodes will take on a PC edge - Peter will no longer be running from a rake-toting Farmer McGregor, nor will Peter's father be baked in a pie. The new series will have more action and more color, as designers say they are attempting to keep up with today's kids. British broadcasters report they are spending more on pre-school shows, such as Beatrix Potter, but less on children’s programming in general.
I am happy to hear that Peter is coming back, but hope that the remake is not too different from the classic! We will have to wait and see. If you don't have the books, you can visit Kids' Corner to view and listen to the stories online, or visit the official Peter Rabbit site, which has lots of information on Beatrix Potter and games for the kids. Leave a comment below and share your favorite Peter Rabbit tale. I always liked Miss Moppet!
