    Delightful Beatrix Potter NookBook!

    I was so happy to get this Free NookBook by Beatrix Potter. It was an old library book and usually these free books are unreadable. This one is terrific. Beatrix Potter's beautiful watercolors of the Tailor, the cat "Simpkin", and the mice in their finery are all here. If there ever was a time I could enjoy seeing a mouse, this is it. The story is sweet. The tailor is very poor, but he wants to make a coat for the Mayor of Gloucester. He sends Simpkin out in the snow to buy food and some "twist" (cherry colored thread), to finish the coat. The story comes alive with Potter's delightful watercolors of the tailor, Simpkin the cat, and the formally dressed mice who help the tailor. It's a wonderful book for Beatrix Potter fans and children of all ages.

    The ill tailor is in a jam. He has freed all the mice his cat had caught for supper, and in turn, his devious cat has hidden the last skein of twist (thread) for the Lord High Mayor's Christmas/wedding waistcoat. During the night, the grateful mice finish stitching the coat, all except the last buttonhole because they run out of twist. Not to be outdone by kind mice, the cat relents and returns the twist to the tailor. All is saved for the old man. A long story rich with beautiful pictures and clever plot, the story appeals to young and old alike. For over 3; perhaps broken-up because of its length. A Rabbit Ears Production Storybook Classic. Also comes in audio and video, narrated by Meryl Streep with music by the Chieftains.

    Wonderful Christmas story

    Bought this to read to my 5 year old granddaughter when she visited at Christmas. She was enchanted with the story. The pictures and story line are classic. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    One of the best Christmas fairy tales of all time!

    A magical setting in wintry England brings us a tale of devotion and triumph, written with the loveliest language a child's ear could imagine. Beatrix Potter lives on through her marvelous mice, in a book small enough for the hands of little ones but big enough to swell the hearts and imaginations of those of all ages.
