Story 7:56 Jemima is a domestic duck whose eggs are routinely collected by the farmer's wife, she believed Jemima a poor sitter. Jemima searches for a place away from the farm where she can hatch her eggs,and confides her woes to a suave fox who invites her to nest in a shed at his home. Jemima accepts, little realizing her danger: the fox plans to have roast duck. 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 collie dog parallels to the fairy tale's heroine, wolf, and woodcutter. Jemima, Kep, the farmer's wife and her two children were all modelled on real world individuals at Potter's Hill Top farm.
