Beatrix Potter Review of Book Twenty-One: The Story Of Miss Moppet

Name of Book: The Story of Miss Moppet
Author/Illustrator: By Beatrix Potter
What It's All About: Miss Moppet has seen a mouse! She tries to catch the cheeky little man but he is too quick for her.  She ties her head up in her handkerchief and looks very ill so that the mouse comes to investigate.  He should have been looking at her eye through the hole of the handkerchief.  It's gleaming a little too much.  He is caught! Miss Moppet decides to play with him in the handkerchief but she forgets that there is a hole in it.  When she opens the handkerchief, the mouse is gone. Shall we feel sad for Miss Moppet? Not if the little mouse she is trying to catch is wearing a waistcoat.
My Favorite Bit: I love the little mouse peeking out from the handkerchief as Miss Moppet ties it up.

Suitable Age For Reading It To: Another fun little story that can be read to everyone (and done quickly and to to the delight of all since it is very short).
