Peter Rabbit Exhibit

On Saturday, Peter Rabbit: The tale of The Tale opens at the V&A Museum in London. It traces the evolution of that naughty little bunny, from 1893, when Beatrix Potter first wrote about him, until today. This exhibit caught my eye because our summer issue (in the mail as I type) has a wonderful article about children's book illustration and art and how popular it has become at major museums in the past few years. Curious George, Babar, and the work of Maurice Sendak, in particular. Now, Peter Rabbit joins in the fun.
