*Includes Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, and Jemima Puddleduck.*
The whimsical characters of Beatrix Potter live in a no-nonsense world where mistakes have consequences, and a wrong step might get you made into meat pies by Mrs. McGregor or eaten by a fox.

This package includes:
- Fabella de Petro Cuniculo (Peter Rabbit),
- Fabella de Beniamino Cuniculo (Benjamin Bunny), and
- Fabella de Jemima Paludivaga (Jemima Puddleduck)
These books are sure to please students and teachers as well as any casual readers, whether children or adults. Each splendid Latin story contains Beatrix Potter’s own color illustrations along with glosses for tricky vocabulary.
What People Are Saying:
"These three little books, newly conversi in linguam Latinam by Sarah Hill, couldn’t be more charming. Kids (and their moms and dads too) have forever loved Peter Rabbit and family and dear Jemima Puddle-duck, and readers with any affection at all for Latin will cherish Jemima Paludivaga and Petrus Cuniculus even more—not to mention Hill’s Flacilla, Pupilla and Lanosa-cauda -- Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail!" -Richard A. LaFleur, author of Wheelock's Latin and Ubi Fera Sunt and Franklin Professor of Classics Emeritus, University of Georgia
