Of the life of Beowabbit little is known. The following fragment only remains of the fabled Codex Lactucae, most of which was shredded for bedding in 1727 by a well-to-do hare on the outskirts of Manchester.
Long of ear / the gnawer gnashes
terrible teeth! / Triumph will be
the royal reward / the Rabbit has earned.
It is rumoured that earlier copies of the famous Codex exist, so perhaps more will be revealed of the life of this brave warrior to future generations.
