It is said that the effect of eating too much lettuce is "soporific."
I have never felt sleepy after eating lettuces; but then I am not a rabbit.
The Flopsy Bunnies, the children of Benjamin Bunny, most certainly are rabbits and they like eating lettuces very much, although their parents being somewhat improvident, they often have to scavenge for them. Sometimes even in McMcregor’s rubbish heap.
One day they find a whole mountain of overgrown lettuces there and eat the lot. They make all the little Flopsy Bunnies very sleepy in the midday sun. Who should this be coming down the garden though, but Mr McGregor himself!
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny.
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, the fourteenth book to be published, is number ten in this series of charming stories.
