Narration Summary Chapter 2 - The Burgess Animal Book

At the set time the next day Peter and Jumper ran off to where Peter had found mother earth previously. When they found her their school lesson started straight away as mother earth was very busy still. Peter was asked to look at himself and his lifestyle. All he could muster was that he was brown with a white tail, lived in a briar patch and didn't like water. Mother earth remembered the conversation they had had about the Marsh Rabbit the day before when Peter brought up disliking water. She then proceeded to ask Peter if he had been thinking about the Marsh Rabbit when he said that. Peter agreed that it had been is train of thought. Jumper had never heard of a the Marsh Rabbit before. Mother Earth then asked Peter what he knew about Jumper. All Peter really knew about Jumper was that he was the biggest of their family and changed colours in the winter. Of course Jumper was in fact not the largest of the family. There were rabbits and hares far larger than him elsewhere in the world, but Mother nature would talk about them another time. After that Mother Nature went on to explain the differences between Peter and Jumper which were :

  • Jumper:  ( the Snowshoe Hare )
    Broader feet for running across deep snow in the winter, Runs faster than a rabbit, very skilled at dodging obstacles, Changes colour to white in winter, good at dodging and babies are born with eyes open and with fur
  • Peter:  ( the Cottontail Rabbit)
     hides in bushes but doesn't run well, smaller than a hare, lives in the undergrowth and Babies are born with eyes closed and no fur , hind legs stout and strong, front legs weak, coat brown in summer, grey in winter, ears are not as long, very short tail carried straight up, looks white similar to 

After that she asked the both of them to look at their feet where a lot of thin hair grew on the soles. She then explained that their cousin the marsh rabbit didn't have these hairs so he could swim better but he couldn't run very well so whenever he was being chased he just darted into the water only his ears, eyes and nose peeping out. And that was all she had time to tell that day. But before they left Mother Earth gave a quick warning that Fox was coming. And sure enough fox had just sighted Peter and Jumper. And in turn the two of them darted off. Peter the cotton tail rabbit ran into a hole under a tree. And Jumper the snowshoe hare raced across the fields with Fox hot on his tail.
