The Tale of Benjamin Bunny (1904)

The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. Beatrix Potter. 1904. [Source: Bought]

First sentence: One morning a little rabbit sat on a bank. He pricked his ears and listened to the trit-trot, trit-trot of a pony.

Premise/plot: Benjamin Bunny is a cousin--and friend--to Peter Rabbit. When he sees Mr. and Mrs. McGregor leaving the farm for the day, he rushes over to Peter's house and suggests something daring: go back to Mr. McGregor's garden to GET PETER's JACKET BACK. Peter agrees, though slightly reluctantly. He's had a traumatic experience, after all, but he's not that timid a rabbit. Another adventure will be had!!!

My thoughts: Really love both of these stories. I do. I like both Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as characters. And I like their adventures. They may be naughty--sometimes VERY naughty--but there isn't ever a dull moment either. And it's quite something to see OLD MR. BUNNY (aka Benjamin's dad) take care of the cat!!!
