LUCY
Peter Rabbit is this stupid book
About this stupid rabbit who steals
Vegetables from other peoples' gardens
(She counts the words so far)
Hmm. 83 to go.

SCHROEDER
The name of the book about which
This book report is about is
Peter Rabbit which is about this
Rabbit.
I found it very-
I liked the part where-
It was a-

It reminded me of "Robin Hood"
And the part where Little John jumped from the rock
To the Sheriff of Nottingham's back.
And then Robin and everyone swung from the trees
In a sudden surprise attack.
And they captured the sheriff and all of his goods
And they carried him back to their camp in the woods
And the sheriff was guest at their dinner and all
But he wriggled away and he sounded the call
And his men rushed in and the arrows flew-
Peter Rabbit did sort of that kind of thing too.

LUCY
The other people's name was Macgregor.
(counts to 23)
Ohh!

Linus
In examining a book such as Peter Rabbit, it is
important that
the superficial chracteristics of its deceptively
simple plot
should not be allowed to blind the reader to the more
substancial
fabric of its deeper motivations. In this report I plan
to discuss the
sociological implications of family pressures so
great as to drive an otherwise moral rabbit to
perform acts of thievery which he consciously knew were
against the law. I also hope to explore the personlaity
of Mr.
Macgregor in his comflicting roles as farmer and
humanitarian.

Peter Rabbit is established from the start as a
benevolent hero
and it is only...

If I start writing now
When I'm not really rested
It could upset my thinking
Which is no good at all.
I'll get a fresh start tomorrow
And it's not due till Wednesday
So I'll have all of Tuesday
Unless something should happen.
Why does this always happen,
I should be outside playing
Getting fresh air and sunshine,
I work best under pressure,
And there'll be lots of pressure
If I wait till tomorrow
I should start writing now.
But I if I start writing now
When I'm nbot really rested
It could upset my thinking
Which is
No good at all.

LUCY
The name of the rabbit was Peter
(counts to 30)
Yes!

SCHROEDER
Down came the staff on his head- smaah!
And Robin fell like a sack full of lead- crash!
The sheriff laughed and he left him for dead- ah!
But he was wring

LUCY
35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40.

SCHROEDER
Just then an arrow flew in- whing!
It was a sign for the fight to begin- zing!
And then it looked like the sheriff would win- ah!
But not for long.
Away they ran.
Just lke rabbits.
Who run a lot
As you can tell
From the story
Of Peter Rabbit
Which this report
Is about.

SALLY/SNOOPY
Rabbits rabbits rabbits rabbits...

CHARLIE BROWN LUCY
How do they expect us to
Write a book report There were vegetables
Of any quality In the garden
In just two days
Such as carrots and spinach
And onions and lettuce
How can they And turnips and parsley
Conspire to And okra and cabbage
Make life so mis'rable And string beans ans parsnips
And so effectively Tomatoes, potatoes, asparagus
In so many ways Cauliflower, rhubarb and chives.

LINUS
Not to mention the extreme pressure exterted on him
bu his deeply rooted rivalry with Flopsy, Mopsy and
Cottontail!
