The Tale of Tom KittenTraditionally I start the year with a Beatrix Potter I believe this is my 7th story now so several to go As a child although loving to read I was not familiar with the Beatrix Potter books so I'm catching upThis is a sweet little story about three naughty little kittens up to mischief helped by a couple of ducks in short I admire Beatrix Potter for her career her creativity and I love the cute little drawings 35 stars for me The Tale of Tom Kitten is set in the cottage garden Beatrix created herself at Hill Top the farm she owned near the village of Sawrey Tom and his sisters look so smart in their new clothes When their mother sends them outside while she waits for her visitors she couldn't possibly guess what kind of mess they are going to get themselves into I love the Beatrix Potter stories and this is no different Tom Kitten and his siblings Mittens and Moppet are sent outside to play until their mother's company comes for tea They get dirty and lose their clothes The kittens miss out on tea and are sent to their rooms in punishment Naughty kittens Usually I am dead against dressing up animals in clothing because the indignity is unbearable and the smugness of their owners is incredibly punch worthy and I do not need any persuading for that thank you but since my fondness of cats is barely in existence I would say if you vote for me your party candidate I will make it law for all cats and kittens alike to be dressed up like Tom KittenBlue frilly shorts; a waistcoat that barely fits and a wee straw hat; with their little paws sticking out like furry caterpillars this shall be law and all shall obey And it will be so fucking cute I might explodeThe story is almost inconseuential again as with a lot of these little stories They are there to help those with little academic prowess to build the world inside their heads whereas those with little imagination have the drawings to help them colour that world The Beatrix Potter books are really wonderful and my children and grandchildren really have enjoyed the stories Recommended Does someone remember the movie Despicable Me made by Disney One fine movie and it had an adorable scene of the 3 girls being read a book by their despicable and conniving adopted father The story that was read to them had three little kittens who were forced to go to bed by their mother Let me reproduce the little poem here 3 little kittens loved to playThey had fun in the sun all dayThen their mother came out and sayTime for kittens to go to bed 3 little kittens started to brawl‘mummy we are not tired at all’Their mother smiled and said with a purr‘fine but at least you should brush your fur’3 little kittens with fur all brushedSaid we can’t sleep we feel too rushedThe mother replied with voice like silk‘fine but at least you should drink your milk3 little kittens with milk all goneRubbed their eyes and started to yawn‘we can’t sleep we can’t even try’Then their mother sang a lullaby‘Good night kittens close your eyesSleep in peace till you rise’‘Though while you sleep we are apartBut your mommy loves you with all her heart’It seemed as if this poem was inspired by this book of potter The book reminded me of the above scene barring the fact that in the movie than the kittens I found the girls adorable 3 little kittens are all dressed up by their mother to put up a good show before her friends They got dressed well but started losing their clothes as soon as their mother stopped dressing them In the end they had to put into bed before the friends arrive because they have lost all the clothesThey are cute mischievous and adorable I loved it Firstly I love the names of Mittens Tom Kitten and Moppet I also like words like pinafores that take me back to author Potter's time As for the puddle ducks well aren't they clever only Mr Drake puddle duck is cheeky to put Tom's clothes on himself rather than on Tom Oh what fun to revisit these books that I loved as a girl His hat fell off and the rest of his buttons burst Isn't that a great line? if you know they're naughty kittens don't let them out when they have to stay clean One of the books I will be teaching this year
