From the story of Potter (not Peter) Rabbit and his family and their adventures in the Potting Shed, the garden and Hollow Tree Woods: "The fireworks display was held at dusk in the swamp across the stream, where the denizens could have grandstand seats on the hillside. First a troupe of fireflies burst from the swamp grass like a shower of sparklers and performed a ballet to the accompaniment of Mr. Green Frog'’ banjo. This was followed by a fine display of fox fire, arranged by the foxes. The swamp torches (cattails) stood tall in the starlight. Finally a curtain of clouds was drawn over the stars. There was a great stillness. Then a blinding flash of lightning leaped from cloud to cloud, followed seconds later by a deafening clap of thunder that echoes and reechoed among the ridges. This was the grand finale."" Charming illustrations by the author throughout the book.
