Peter Rabbit is a character in children’s stories written by Beatrix Potter. The first story about Peter Rabbit that Beatrix Potter wrote was The Tale of Peter Rabbit. She wrote this story in 1902. Peter Rabbit was named after Beatrix Potter’s pet rabbit. She first wrote about Peter Rabbit in letters to a five-year-old boy called Noel Moore.

These books are about Peter Rabbit and other characters.
Beatrix Potter created three sisters for Peter. They are called Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. They live in a hole with their mother who is called Mrs. Rabbit. Peter Rabbit is still popular around the world today. If you ever get a chance, you should visit the Beatrix Potter museum in Bowness-on-Windermere, England.
