The illustrations give the readers the opportunity to view the story from a perspective that is different from the relative objectivity of the text. Without its illustrations Peter Rabbit might have had a different effect on its readers.
The story might have been just a tale of morality, conforming to the norms and values of Victorian ideology, according to which disobedience deserved punishment.

It is a story of rebellion and the need for adventure. Peter Rabbit has not learned, nor was supposed to learn, a moral lesson from his first adventure. On the contrary, Potter enjoyed making Peter Rabbit a rebel against convention. Works cited Potter, Beatrix.

By the year's end there were 28, copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit in print. By the middle of there was a fifth edition sporting coloured endpapers There was nothing anyone could do to stop them".
The enormous financial loss " McGregor's vegetables Potter asserted that her tales would one day be nursery classics, and part of the "longevity of her books comes from strategy", writes Potter biographer Ruth MacDonald. Variant versions include "pop-ups, toy theatres, and lift-the-flap books". By , modern technology had made available "videos, audio cassette, a CD-ROMs, a computer program, and Internet sites", as described by Margaret Mackey writing in The case of Peter Rabbit: changing conditions of literature for children.
She continues: "Warne and their collaborators and competitors have produced a large collection of activity books and a monthly educational magazine".
A plethora of other Peter Rabbit related merchandise exists, and "toy shops in the United States and Britain have whole sections of [the] store specially signposted and earmarked exclusively for Potter-related toys and merchandise".
In , American Louise A. Field cashed in on the popularity by writing books such as Peter Rabbit Goes to School and Peter Rabbit and His Ma, the illustrations of which showed him in his distinctive blue jacket. He believes Potter created a good mix of suspense and tension, intermixed with lulls in the action.
He goes on to write that the writing style—"the economy of words, the crisp writing"—lends itself well to a young audience.

Peter thought it best to go away without speaking to her; he had heard about cats from his cousin, little Benjamin Bunny. He went back towards the tool-shed, but suddenly, quite close to him, he heard the noise of a hoe-scr-r-ritch, scratch, scratch, scritch.
Peter scuttered underneath the bushes.
But presently, as nothing happened, he came out, and climbed upon a wheelbarrow and peeped over. The first thing he saw was Mr. McGregor hoeing onions.

He slipped underneath the gate, and was safe at last in the wood outside the garden. McGregor hung up the little jacket and the shoes for a scare-crow to frighten the blackbirds. Peter never stopped running or looked behind him till he got home to the big fir-tree. He was so tired that he flopped down upon the nice soft sand on the floor of the rabbit-hole and shut his eyes.
His mother was busy cooking; she wondered what he had done with his clothes. It was the second little jacket and pair of shoes that Peter had lost in a fortnight! I am sorry to say that Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some camomile tea; and she gave a dose of it to Peter!
