 The picnic that Percy the park-keeper and his animal friends are enjoying is interrupted when a little rabbit falls into a deep, empty well. Percy lowers a rope, which the rabbit--not sure what to do--ties to a wedged log; then, while her mystified friends try to pull her up, she escapes through a handy opening in the well wall. When the others finally yank up the log, they discover that their success is due to the bunny they thought they were rescuing, who's given the decisive pull: ```I thought I'd help you,' she said. `What are we doing?''' A cozy little story, distinguished by amiable illustrations and an entertaining foldout of the denouement, with a score of appealing creatures tugging, with varying effectiveness, on the long rope. (Picture book. 3-8)
