The story of how a mischievious kitten named Tom meets a clever rat named Samuel. Potter's illustrations are amazing in detail and movement.

This is another story involving Tom the Kitten. Once again, he has found a way to get himself in trouble. Rats are usually hunted by cats, but this story illustrates the opposite happening. Will Tom the Kitten ever learn? ( )

This story is one of my children's favorite Beatrix Potter stories.

Tabitha Twitchet has three very naughty kittens, Moppet, Mittens and Tom Kitten; whom she keeps on loosing tracks on. One day, they went missing once more, but as she search high and low, she could only find Moppet and Mittens. Tome however, didn't go missing, but merely hiding in the chimney only to be captured by a enormous Samuel Whiskers. His wife begins to prep up the ingredients to turn the terrified Tom into a "Kitten dumpling roly-poly pudding"

This is a cute story, with quite a plot that could turn and twist your kids in gasping suspense. Aid with beautiful illustration to aid your children in nurturing them with absolutely healthy imaginations. I actually enjoy reading this as well. ( )
