Overview

(Helen) Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) was an English author and illustrator, botanist, and conservationist, born in Kensington, London best known for her children's books, which featured animal characters such as Peter Rabbit. Educated at home by a succession of governesses, she had little opportunity to mix with other children. Potter had frogs and newts, and even a pet bat. The basis of her many projects and stories were the small animals that she smuggled into the house or observed during family holidays in Scotland and the Lake District. She was encouraged to publish her story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902), but she struggled to find a publisher until it was accepted when she was 36, by Frederick Warne & Co. The small book and her following works were extremely well received and she gained an independent income from the sales. Potter eventually wrote 23 books. These were published in a small format, easy for a child to hold and read. Her writing efforts abated around 1920 due to poor eyesight.

The Flopsy Bunnies fell asleep and were caught by Mr. McGregor, who put them in a sack. Thomasina Tittlemouse chews a hole in the sack, and the bunnies are switched for old garbage. Mr. McGregor gets in trouble when he tells his wife he has bunnies and they find the garbage instead.

This is a story of Benjamin Bunny little children, who are mostly known as the "Flopsy Bunnies" who went to Mr. McGregor's rubbish heap and found lots of overgrown lettuces. Astound with their find, they decided to eat their fill but ended up sleeping soundly after they are full. Unfortunately for them, they were discovered by Mr. McGregor who puts them in a bag so he could sell them off. Thomasina Tittlemouse comes to the rescue and the bunnies are replace with whatever they could find.I absolutely love the traditional water-colored illustrations depicted in this the pages of this book. The story itself is a wonderful cute tale for children to enjoy as well. The plot is simple but it attracts the kids when you read it to them, with of course a couple of "gasps" moments in between the pages. Otherwise, I'm sure to put this book in the list of books I love to read to my young kids to.

I like this one. The bunnies did something. The bunnies ate the garden, some lettuce in McGreggor's garen. I did like it. Then they go back to nap. The end.
