That was a fine place to make a bonfire, only the gardener was too busy just then to attend to it. He had the potatoes to dig and the green peas to gather, but next morning he promised to come quite early and burn the whole lot. That night the Boy slept in a different bedroom, and he had a new bunny to sleep with him.
In the open glade between the tree trunks, the wild rabbits danced with their shadows on the velvet grass, but when they saw the Fairy, they all stopped dancing and stood round in a ring to stare at her. “I’ve brought you a new playfellow,” the Fairy said. ” And she kissed the little Rabbit again and put him down on the grass. ” she said. 40 But the little Rabbit sat quite still for a moment and never moved.

He was a Real Rabbit at last, at home with the other rabbits. 42 Autumn passed and winter, and in the spring, when the days grew warm and sunny, the Boy went out to play in the wood behind the house. And while he was playing, two rabbits crept out from the bracken and peeped at him.
