The Tale of Peter Rabbit
By Beatrix Potter
Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter.
They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree.
He lost one of his shoes among the cabbages, and the other shoe amongst the potatoes.
Presently Peter sneezed—’Kertyschoo!’ Mr. McGregor was after him in no time.
After a time he began to wander about, going lippity—lippity—not very fast, and looking all round.
An old mouse was running in and out over the stone doorstep, carrying peas and beans to her family in the wood. Peter asked her the way to the gate, but she had such a large pea in her mouth that she could not answer. She only shook her head at him. Peter began to cry.
Mr. McGregor caught sight of him at the corner, but Peter did not care. He slipped underneath the gate, and was safe at last in the wood outside the garden.
Peter never stopped running or looked behind him till he got home to the big fir-tree.
‘One table-spoonful to be taken at bed-time.’
