Peter Rabbits watches as Jenny and Mr. Wren try to get their old home back from Bully the English Sparrow and his wife.  More birds get involved until an intruder changes redirects their attention.

Questions for kids:

  • How did the birds act when they got into an “argument”?
  • What would you do if you were Jenny and Mr. Wren trying to get your house back from some bullies?
  • What ideas do you have that would improve the chances of Black Pussy catching a bird?
