I think sophisticated writing is one of the most important criteria for a book to be a work of literature, especially modern literature. Did you mean the Peter Rabbit books? I don't really know much about them apart from the ubiquitous merchandise that they spawned but I'd say no.
The fact that you prefer heavier, more philosophical/intellectual books does not give you the right to redefine the word "literature". There's nothing more boring than elitism.
