Peter Rabbit

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.

“Now, my dears,” said old Mrs. Rabbit one morning, “you may go into the fields or down the lane, but don’t go into Mr. McGregor’s garden.

“Your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor.

Peter Rabbit

“Now run along, and don’t get into mischief. I am going out.”
