Beatrix Potter gathered material for a book of rhymes over many years. In 1917, when her publisher was in financial difficulties and needed her help, she suggested that Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes could be brought out quickly, using her existing collection of rhymes and drawings. The fact that the illustrations were painted at different times explains why the style occasionally varies. Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes is number 22 in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books, the titles of which are as follows: 1 The Tale of Peter Rabbit 2 The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin 3 The Tailor of Gloucester 4 The Tale of Benjamin Bunny 5 The Tale of Two Bad Mice 6 The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle 7 The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher 8 The Tale of Tom Kitten 9 The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck 10 The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies 11 The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse 12 The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes 13 The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse 14 The Tale of Mr. Tod 15 The Tale of Pigling Bland 16 The Tale of Samuel Whiskers 17 The Tale of The Pie and the Patty-Pan 18 The Tale of Ginger and Pickles 19 The Tale of Little Pig Robinson 20 The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit 21 The Story of Miss Moppet 22 Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes 23 Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes

In somebody’s cupboard there’s everything nice, Cake, cheese, jam,

biscuits, — all charming for mice! Appley Dapply has little sharp eyes, And Appley Dapply is so fond of pies! Now who is this knocking at Cotton-tail’s door? Tap tappit! Tap tappit! She’s heard it before? And when she peeps out there is nobody there, But a present of carrots put down on the stair. Hark! I hear it again! Tap, tap, tappit! Tap tappit! Why — I really believe it’s a little black rabbit! Old Mr. Pricklepin has never a cushion to stick his pins

in the oven, And serve them very hot! There once was an amiable guinea-pig, Who brushed back his hair like a periwig — He wore a sweet tie, As blue as the sky — And his whiskers and buttons were very big.
