There are two Peter Rabbits in our home. And we love both, but can anyone tell me why Beatrix Potter and Thornton W Burgess both have Peter Rabbit? I know that Mr. Burgess wrote about Peter in 1910 and Ms. Potter in 1902. Did they know about one another? Did He pick up where she left off and only adopt one of her characters? Or was it just a strange coincidence?
I'll be so grateful for any insight to offer to Fish! Inquiring minds want to know, after all.
