Peter Rabbit Hieroglyphs

Beatrix Potter’s classic story can be heard in over 40 languages, including German, Armenian, Japanese, and even Klingon! But did you know it has also been translated into hieroglyphs? Come to the Spurlock for a decoding workshop! Hear the story of Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-Tail and decode the hieroglyphs you discover in this special translation by Dr. Richard Parkinson. Then use your new-found language to send messages to each other.
