So when Peter discovered Llr.U up- rarently Busier Hear, asleep in his den under the great windfall deep in die Green Forest, was woarinj a in-own coat instead of the black coat Peter always had seen him in he at once wanted 10 Unow about it. lie never had heard that Euster wore a different colored coat in winter, but he was wise enoush to know that the fact that IIG never had beard oE It was no reason why it "shouldn't be.

Mistress Moon came up almost as soon as Mr. Sim disappeared. Then Peter hopped out from the great wind- fall and almost at once he saw the one person be most wanted to see. It was his big conain, Jumper the Hare. Juniper was, of course, wearing his nn'on-y white winter coat. In the spring he would change it for a brown coat. Having this habit of changing his coat he would be likely lo know .about others with the same habit.
