Peter Rabbit continues

According to Publishers Weekly, Frederick Warne has announced that it will publish The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, written by actress Emma Thompson, in September 2012. The book is the 24th tale starring Peter Rabbit, and will be the first time Warne has published an original addition to the series of books that Beatrix Potter wrote between 1902 and 1930.

I would be more excited about this news, but I once attended a college lecture about Beatrix Potter, and the speaker cheerfully informed us that Ms. Potter had rabbits shot and stuffed so she could draw them at her convenience. It sort of took the bloom off the rose, you know?
