The Tale Of Benjamin Bunny Q&A

The Tale Of Benjamin Bunny Summary

One day Peter Rabbit’s cousin, Benjamin Bunny sees that Mr. and Mrs. McGregor are going out for the day. He hops over to Peter’s house and finds Peter sitting outside wrapped in a red handkerchief instead of his clothes. Peter tells Benjamin about his close call in Mr. McGregor’s garden and how he lost his coat and shoes while trying to get away.

The two little rabbits decide to go to the garden to see if they can find Peter’s clothes. When they get to the garden they see Mr. McGregor’s scarecrow wearing Peter’s clothes. They take the clothes off the scarecrow and Peter quickly gets dressed. Benjamin then takes Peter’s handkerchief and begins filling it with onions for Peter’s mother.

Peter starts becoming nervous about being in Mr. McGregor’s garden again and when he hears a noise they stop to investigate. They peep around the corner and see a sleeping cat. Peter and Benjamin quickly hide under a big basket. The cat wakes up and promptly sits on top of the basket and traps Peter and Benjamin inside!

Later in the afternoon, Benjamin’s father, Mr. Benjamin Bunny starts looking for his son. He knocks the cat off of the basket and chases her into the greenhouse where he locks her inside. He rescues Peter and Benjamin from under the basket and although he is happy that they are both safe, he gives them both a good hiding!

When Peter gets home, he gives his mother the onions that they picked for her. She is very happy that he managed to find his clothes and forgives him for his adventure into Mr. McGregor’s garden.
