THE TALE OF TOM KITTEN BY BEATRIX POTTER
Author of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit", &c.

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 tum-bled 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.

First she scrubbed their faces (this one is Moppet).
Then she brushed their fur, (this one is Mittens).

Meet the Author

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866 -1943) was an English author, illus-trator, natural scientist, and conservationistbest known for her imaginative children's books featuring animals such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit, which celebrated the British landscape and country life.

Potter was born into a wealthy Unitarian family. She and her younger brother Walter Bertram (1872-1918) grew up with few friends outside their large extended family. Her parents were artistic, interested in nature, and enjoyed the countryside. As children, Beatrix and Bertram had numerous small animals as pets which they observed closely and drew endlessly. Summer holidays were spent away from London, in Scotland and in the English Lake District where Beatrix developed a love of the natural world which was the subject of her painting from an early age.

She was educated by private governesses until she was 18. Her study of languages, literature, science, and history was broad and she was an eager student. Her artistic talents were recognized early. She enjoyed private art lessons and developed her own style, favouring watercolour. She illustrated insects, fossils, archaeological artifacts, and fungi, along with her drawings of her animals, real and imagined.

Potter was also a prize-winning breeder of Herdwick sheep and a prosperous farmer keenly interested in land preservation. She continued to write and illustrate, and to design spin-off merchandise based on her children's books for Warne, until the duties of land management and her diminishing eyesight made it difficult to continue.
Potter published over 23 books; the best known are those written between 1902 and 1922. She died of pneumonia and heart disease on 22 December 1943 at her home in Near Sawrey (Lancashire) at age 77, leaving almost all her property to theNational Trust. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now comprises the Lake District National Park.

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.

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
