|Emma showing off the famous blue jacket|
Appearing on The One Show this week, she said they sent her a box in which was a small blue jacket, remains of an eaten radish and a note from Peter Rabbit himself asking her to write him a new story! Who could resist?!
Above is the moment Emma revealed the jacket (which got a big 'aahh' from the studio audience). If you want to hear Emma talking about this and reading an extract from the book, you can...
Here's the link to catch her on the BBC's iPlayer, it's available until 7:56PM Wed, 12 Sep 2012.
You can of course buy Emma's new Peter Rabbit book from Hill Top shop (and get one of our Hill Top book plates put in it to make it even more special).

They are part of a delightful series of miniature letters written to children by some of her famous characters. These letters were written on very small pieces of paper, folded even smaller and some put into small mailbags or red post boxes that Beatrix made herself, before being despatched to her young friends.
To celebrate Peter's 110th anniversary Warnes published a wonderful little book of these miniature letters, it is available from Hill Top shop.
