She describes the real Peter Rabbit. Not one to be fettered by reality, she then draws a pictures of rabbits throwing snowballs.

“My rabbit Peter is so lazy”: maybe the most adorable independent clause in any letter, ever.

2. She writes about feeding buns to elephants, and about not being allowed to feed the ostriches because “a naughty boy gave them old gloves + made them ill.”

She writes about feeding buns to elephants, and about not being allowed to feed the ostriches because "a naughty boy gave them old gloves + made them ill."

Presumably, that drawing towards the middle is a drawing of a naughty boy feeding old gloves to an ostrich.

3. Just look at that mouse bundled up in an armchair.

She knows that just because you're a dog named Stumpy doesn't mean you're not a gentleman.

Or rather “a polite grave gentleman.”

9. And, like all the better pen pals, she is not too proud to admit she’s offended when a dog named Stumpy snubs her.

And, like all the better pen pals, she is not too proud to admit she's offended when a dog named Stumpy snubs her.

“He is such a polite grave gentleman, but so proud! I meet him out shopping in the morning, he looks at me sideways but he never speaks.”

10. Her letters are a little window into her precious mind.

Her letters are a little window into her precious mind.
