Peter Rabbit - Tank Killer


Now, believe it or not, this has to do with my next exam. It is all about adaptation of children’s literature (which includes all forms of input), these last two decades. It is a bit complicated, but as this is part of the answer, please look and hopefully give comments.

This is from "The Book of Revelations" by Mark Leigh and Mike Lepine.
In 1988 a humour book called The Book of Revelations (Mark Leigh and Mike Lepine) printed a parody of both Beatrix  Potter and Sven Hassel entitled "Peter Rabbit - Tank Killer" - lampooning the fashion of the period for unscrupulous publishers and literary estates to draft in famous authors to pen "continuations" of their most successful characters and series. (Taken from Wikipedia.)

I found the story and pics on the net and created the YouTube.

That Beatrix Potter was a bit strange with her constant references to cannibalism.

I blame the book " The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding" as having an unfortunate effect on the mind of the precocious Hannibal Lecter which was compounded by the later disappearance of his sister Mischa.
