Overview

Once upon a time there were three little kittens, and their names were Mittens, Tom Kitten, and Moppet. They had dear little fur coats of their own; and they tumbled about the doorstep and played in the dust. But one day their mother—Mrs. Tabitha Twitchit—expected friends to tea; so she fetched the kittens indoors, to wash and dress them, before the fine company arrived.

Beatrix Potter was an English author, illustrator, and natural scientist. Her imaginative children's books feature many natural animals that can be found in the British countryside. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now comprises the Lake District National Park. Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit story is among the most popular children's stories worldwide.

This book has so many errors it is not even funny. Also They say that the rats grab the dough and butter for the cat pudding before the cat falls into thier den, and repeat that they go grab that dough and pudding again for the cat pudding after the cat falls into thier den. And thier is lots of random simbols including,:;@#$1368'$& and other random words in thier and mispellings. I suggest reading the regular hard cover with pages you can flip with your hands.

Mrs. Tabitha Twitchett has dressed the kittens up in preparation for her tea party, but her children can not stay looking nice! They soon loose their clothes, which are stolen by the puddle ducks. After getting in trouble they have to spend the afternoon upstairs.

Fairly dull tale of kitteny mischief. In its favour, the pictures are lifelike as usual, at least as far as clothed bipedal animals can be. And I did learn the word "tucker" (item of clothing).

It's ok. It's kind of hard to read because of it having the miss spelling problem, but at least the book is free. The story is short but still, i like the books beatrix potter makes. I once saw a movie about this book before. It was a cartoon, but i really liked it. Maybe i will be able to find it. This book does have nice pictures in it. So that helps the book. - Nicole
