The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2011 Guest Editor Julie Hearn has chosen this favourite tale: "When I was little I believed, absolutely, that Mrs Tiggy-Winkle washed my grandad’s socks and ironed his pocket handkerchiefs, even though he wasn’t a small animal. To this day, I can’t look at a foxglove . . . or a squirrel in the park... or a row of lettuces in a vegetable patch... without remembering my childhood collection of Beatrix Potter books. I knew most of the stories by heart, before I could read, and The Tale of Two Bad Mice was my favourite. There is a dark side to Potter’s tales that I somehow understood, and respected. If Peter Rabbit’s father could end up dead in a pie, then Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca – those ham-smashing, bolster-ripping, cradle-stealing, very bad mice – might just as easily have been pulped in the nurse’s mouse trap, or caught and punished by the police-man doll. But they weren’t. Phew!"
The Tale of Two Bad Mice by Beatrix Potter
The Tale of Two Bad Mice is as lively and funny today as it was when it was first written. See the chaos that ensues when Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca, two naughty little mice, creep into Lucinda and Jane's doll's house one morning. They are not happy to discover that the delicious food is made of plaster and won't come off the plates, or that the canisters on the dresser don't contain real rice and coffee, only coloured beans! They set about taking things to make their little home more comfortable, but end up creating a terrible mess. What will happen when the dolls come home from their walk in the park?
