BENJAMIN BOUNCER AND PETER RABBIT. In 1890, Beatrix added a rabbit, Benjamin Bouncer, to her family of animals. He was followed by a bunny named Peter in 1893, whose tale she first told in a illustrated letter to one of Annie Moore's eight children, Noel, later that same year. In 1901, she published a small book of Peter's tale herself, intended for family and friends, but in 1902, Frederick Warne & Co. published the first commercial edition of her work. Her story of four little rabbits named Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter has since captured the imagination of millions of children around the world. "Peter never stopped running or looked behind him till he got home to the big fir-tree. He was so tired that he flopped down upon the nice soft sand on the floor of the rabbit-hole, and shut his eyes. His mother was busy cooking; she wondered what he had done with his clothes. It was the second little jacket and pair of shoes that Peter had lost in a fortnight! I am sorry to say that Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some camomile tea; and she gave a dose of it to Peter! "One table-spoonful to be taken at bed-time." But Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail had bread and milk and blackberries for supper." 70530
