IN THE BOOKS BY BEATRIX POTTEREdit
Jeremy stars in the book, The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher. One rainy day, he decides to invite his friends for a dinner party if he catches more than five fish. He wears a Macintosh and a pair of shiny goloshes. He brings his rod and basket to his lily-pad boat. But troubles ruin his fishing trip: a water beetle snaps at his toes, rats make him move his boat, he accidently catches Jack Sharp, little fish laugh at him, and a giant trout grabs him, but spits him out becuase of the taste of the Macintosh. He goes home, puts sticking plaster on his fingers, and serves his friends roasted grasshopper with ladybird sauce.
