“Once upon a time there were four little rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter …”
These famous opening lines of “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” have enchanted young audiences for more than 100 years with the exploits of a charming hero, who, going against his mother’s wishes, has adventures and misadventures in Mr. McGregor’s garden.
