This game is based on characters created by Beatrix Potter. The game is for two to four players. Each player chooses to be either Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, Jeremy Fisher or Jemima Puddleduck. With the use of a dice the players take turns to 'race' round the path on the board. They may land on parts of the path that give either penalties or bonuses, all of which come with stories relating to different Beatrix Potter characters.
