The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck 19.65 MB - The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck is a children's book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was first published in July 1908. Potter composed the book at Hill Top, a working farm in the Lake District she bought in 1905.
Jemima is a domestic duck of the Aylesbury breed, whose eggs are routinely confiscated by the farmer's wife because she believes Jemima a poor sitter. Jemima searches for a place away from the farm where she can hatch her eggs without human interference, and naively confides her woes to a suave fox who invites her to nest in a shed at his garden/">home. Jemima accepts his invitation, little realizing her danger: the fox plans to kill and roast her. Kep, a collie on the farm, discovers Jemima's whereabouts and rescues her just in time. Potter indicated the tale was a revision of Little Red Riding Hood with Jemima, the fox, and the dog parallels to the fairy tale's heroine, wolf, and woodcutter.
