“The Tale of Benjamin Bunny” is the fourth book made in Beatrix Potter’s “Peter Rabbit” books and it is about how Peter’s cousin Benjamin convinces Peter to come to Mr. McGregor’s garden to get Peter’s clothes back. “The Tale of Benjamin Bunny” is a truly memorable follow up to the classic tale “Peter Rabbit.”
