THIS is a fierce bad Rabbit; look at his savage whiskers, and his claws, and his turned-up tail.

THIS is a nice gentle Rabbit. His mother has given him a carrot.

THE bad Rabbit would like some carrot.

HE doesn’t say ‘‘Please.’’ He takes it!

AND he scratches the good Rabbit very badly.

THE good Rabbit creeps away, and hides in a hole. It feels sad.

THIS is a man with a gun.

HE sees something sitting on a bench. He thinks it is a very funny bird!

HE comes creeping up behind the trees.

AND then he shoots-- BANG!

THIS is what happens--

BUT this is all he finds on the bench, when he rushes up with his gun.

The good Rabbit peeps out of its hole . . .
