Book Excerpt: 
. . .When Flopsy and Benjamin came back—old Mr. Bouncer woke up. Tommy Brock and all the young rabbit-babies had disappeared!

Ovo je najlepša knjiga za decu koju sam ja ikad videla, prosto mi je žao što mi niko nije ovo čitao kad sam bila mala. Inače priča je o lisici, jazavcu i jako čupavim zekama i jako je zanimljivo u smislu zanima vas šta će biti na kraju , elem kada pročitate prirčicu , ona ima isti efekat ako kad gle

A different style of story. This starts out being a story about the villian - the badger and the Fox. This is a long story and it was too long for the kids with not enough drawings.
