I have only read one other book by this author before reading The Tale of Tom Kitten. The pictures are adorable, the story is cute, and I think younger children and their parents would enjoy reading about the naughty deeds of the three kittens in the story. ( )

A mother cat hopes in vain to keep her kittens clean and well dressed for a tea party. She does not take into consideration the nature of kittens. ( )

This is the story of three kittens all dressed in their best clothes and set out to play. They struggle to keep their clothes on only to lose them. They meet three ducks along the way who waddle off with the poorly fitted clothes. When the kittens return home their mother sends them upstairs while she hosts a tea party. Of course they cause a ruckus disturbing the "dignity and repose" of the party. The book ends with the ducks still searching for the clothes at the bottom of a pond.

A classic tale about three naughty little kittens. The small book size is perfect for small hands, and the story is perfect for short attentions. Part of a collection of Peter Rabbit Books by Beatrix Potter. ( )

I like these books mostly for having seen Miss Potter, but the little kittens are adorable and of course I love the paintings. ( )
