Notes

First UK edition, first impression. Though this was the last of the Peter Rabbit books, it is one of Potter's earliest stories, written in 1883 at Ilfracombe. She revisited the story after the publication of The Fairy Caravan, in response to her American publishers requesting another story. She appeased Warne, who were chagrined at her decision not to allow publication of The Fairy Caravan as a trade edition in the UK, by offering the story to both publishers; it was likely published simultaneously.
