Emma Thompson To Write New ‘Peter Rabbit’ Stories!

By on 16 August, 2010

Nanny McPhee‘ actress Emma Thompson will commemorate the 110th anniversary of Beatrix Potter‘s classic PETER RABBIT tale by penning a new book for the children’s literary series.

The Oscar-winning British actress has been approached by Potter publishers to help reintroduce the stories to a new generation of kids to coincide with its landmark anniversary in 2011.

In an interview with late night U.S. TV host Craig Ferguson, she says:

“I had a lovely little job offer. You know, Peter Rabbit, Beatrix Potter, he is 110 next year and they asked me to write a new story about Peter Rabbit, so I’m going to take him to Scotland.”

Author Potter first introduced the popular furry animal character to readers in 1902 with The Tale of Peter Rabbit. He subsequently appeared in five more installments between 1904 and 1912.
