Synopsis

Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes is a sequel to Beatrix Potter's first rhyme collection, Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes. Like the previous book it contains material she had produced and collected over a period of many years. The ‘Cecily Parsley’ sequence of illustrations was first made into a little booklet twenty-five years before final publication in 1897.
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including [Peter Rabbit](/book/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/beatrix-potter/9780723247708), [Jemima Puddle-Duck](/book/the-tale-of-jemima-puddle-duck/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247784) and [Benjamin Bunny](/book/the-tale-of-benjamin-bunny/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247739).
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. Cecily Parsley’s Nursery Rhymes, the twenty-second book to be published, is number twenty-three in this series of charming stories.
