The Tailor of Gloucester threw me right back into childhood, because there was a Beatrix Potter movie I used to watch at my grandma's house which featured this story. It was wonderful reliving that by reading the book. ( )

Considered to be the perfect story in a very early portion of my childhood. Still adore the thing. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
My Dear Freda,

   Because you are fond of fairy-
tales, and have been ill, I have
made you a story all for yourself
--a new one that nobody has read
before.
   And the queerest thing about it
is--that I heard it in Gloucester-
shire, and that it is true--at least
about the tailor, the waistcoat, and
the
             "No more twist!"

Christmas, 1991
First words
In the time of swords and periwigs and full-skirted coats with flowered lappets - when gentleman wore ruffles, and gold-laced waistcoats of paduasoy and taffeta - there lived a tailor in Gloucester.
