Now. In a magical meadow at the foot of a snow-capped mountain lived some lovely furry rabbits. Their leader was so old that his coat had turned silvery grey, and everyone called him Old Silver. Everyone loved him and has respect for him.
One misty autumn morning as he gazed out of his burrow onto the meadow, he was approached by some eager young rabbits who asked him if he would be kind enough to pass on some of his wisdom. Old Silver twitched his nose. “Why not?” he said. “We’ll start tomorrow. Be here at one o’clock sharp and I’ll teach you all I know especially how to avoid being trapped. There’s nothing more important than that. Don’t be late!”
So the next day, at one o’clock on the dot, the rabbits began their classes. All, that is, except one naughty little rabbit called Pip, who didn’t think that learning anything could be worth giving up his time playing. He just wanted to have fun. So, day after day. Pip went down to the pond to play with the ducks. He jumped as high as he could to win the attention of passing butterflies. And he went into the woods to hop through the autumn leaves and make tunes from their crunching sounds underfoot.
But one day, when naughty Little Rabbit was busy playing and dancing, he skipped onto a net laid on the ground, which was cunningly covered with twigs and leaves – it was a trap! The net tightened around him, scooping him up into a ball. “Help! I’ve been caught!” little rabbit wailed.
That evening, when naughty Little Rabbit didn’t return home, his worried mother asked Old Silver to organize a search. He sent the rabbits out to look in the places where Pip usually played, while he himself headed for the places where he knew hunters often laid traps.
He hadn’t been searching long when he heard human footsteps. A man was coming it sounded like a hunter! Alarmed, Old Silver raced on to the next trap, and there he found sad little Pip wrapped up in the hunter’s net.
Quickly, the wise old rabbit used his long, sharp teeth to gnaw through the ropes. Just as the footsteps were almost on top of them, Silver bit through the last strand and Pip was free! They scampered away as fast as their little legs could carry them.
Pip’s mother wept with joy when she saw her son unharmed. “I’m so glad you’re safe!” she cried. “You gave me such a fright!”. Naughty Little rabbit told sorry to his mother. “It’s all right, son,” she replied. “But how do you see why it’s so important to create time to listen and learn from others? There are some things in life that you really need to learn.”
“Yes, mother, I realize that now,” replied Pip. “I’m so sorry, Old Silver! I promise never to skip lessons again.”
