Peter Rabbit hopped into libraries around the borough as St Helens Libraries Service held special read and rhyme times to celebrate the 150th birthday of Beatrix Potter.

Everyone’s favourite cheeky rabbit visited Central, Chester Lane, Eccleston, and Haydock, Newton le Willows, Parr, Peter Street and Rainhill libraries where hundreds of children got the chance to meet him and listen to his story.

Sue Williamson, Head of Library Services for St Helens Council, said: “It was great to see so many young people in our libraries as we helped celebrate the birthday of a true legend of English literature.

“The attendance for these extra special read and rhyme times just goes to show that Beatrix Potter is still a firm favourite 150 years after her birth.”

A brand new Peter Rabbit story titled ‘The Tale of Kitty-in- Boots’ is due to be published in September.
