Emma Thompson and Peter Rabbit?

While talking to US chat show host Craig Ferguson, Emma Thompson stated that she had received "a lovely little job offer" from the publishers of a children's book series. As it happens, Thompson has been in talks with Frederick Warne to pen a new Peter Rabbit story commemorating 110 years of Peter Rabbit.
 "They asked me to write a new story, so I'm going to take him to Scotland," she said.
She recently admitted that she was planning to take a break from acting. Well known for her many stage and screen roles, including that of Nanny McPhee, Thompson's book is expected to be published by Warne in 2012, just in time to say Happy 110th Birthday, Peter Rabbit.
