Book Description

The Tale of Tom Kitten is a children's book, written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was released by Frederick Warne & Co. in September 1907. The tale is about manners and how children react to them. Tabitha Twitchit, a cat, invites friends for tea. She washes and dresses her three kittens for the party, but within moments the kittens have soiled and lost their clothes while scampering about the garden. Tabitha is "affronted". She sends the kittens to bed, and tells her friends the kittens have the measles. Once the tea party is underway however, its "dignity and repose" are disturbed by the kittens romping overhead and leaving a bedroom in disorder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatrix Potter's First Farmhouse Outing 12 Jun. 2008
Format:Hardcover
Written a year after Beatrix Potter came into ownership of Hill Top, her first farm in the Lake District, "Tom Kitten" introduces the Hill Top setting that would become a staple in subsequent books. Not much is shown of this idyllic world yet, but the first glimpse is an enticing one!

In my opinion, Tom Litten and his sisters are the most darling characters that Beatrix Potter ever drew. Of all her characters, none looks so adorable as the kittens - with "dear little fur coats of their own" - and so balanced in their anthromorphed and human-attired appearances. The story is reminiscent of "Peter Rabbit", with a "very naughty" child protagonist in his mischievous way but minus the danger posed by Mr. MacGregor. In spite of the resemblance, "Tom Kitten" is much gentler than "Peter Rabbit" "Squireel Nutkin" and "Benjamin Bunny". The farmhouse and the Lake world offers perfect peace that is ruffled only by playful childishness. Every child - and many an adult! - surely can identify with Tom Kitten as his mother takes "all sort of elegant uncomfortable clothes out of a chase of drawers" to dress him up for "the dignity and repose of the tea-party".

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding Stories for Young Children 13 May 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The Tale of Peter Rabbit was written in 1900 and has stood the test of time very well. Generations of children have loved the story of Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin and Jemima Puddle-Duck among others and treasured the books of Beatrix Potter. It is up there among the greats of children's literature with Wind in the Willows, The Water Babies, Peter Pan, Treasure Island and many others.

In these days of computer games and electronic toys of one kind or another, books sadly are sometimes not as high on the list as they were a few years ago, perhaps that is why literacy in schools is not all that it could be. Personally as a child books were always my first love and Christmas would not have been the same without a Rupert annual.

Stories that involve animals as the main characters in books always seem to fascinate young children and Peter Rabbit has always been up there with the best. Next time you have to buy a present for a child, or even want to treat one of your younger grandchildren for no particular reason. Instead of looking for the latest DVD why not buy them a book. Peter Rabbit is a good one to start with.

1.0 out of 5 stars nothing like what it says it is... 29 Dec. 2013
By Eva W

This book was listed as a "pop-up book" which it is not! Also listed as used in "good" condition ... well it is "used" alright, but extremely far from being in "good" conditions, I wouldn't even say it's in a "satisfactory" condition. The book is dirty, with felt-tip marks on every page. I bought this for a 10months old I am afraid to give it to him in case he'll catch some disease from this book, it looks that grubby. Also I can't understand why is this book listed as a " pop-up " book, whoever listed it on amazon, had no idea what "pop-up" means... I gave it one star but only because I can't give it zero starts.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Pit pat paddle pat, pit pat waddle pat!' 24 Mar. 2011
Format:Hardcover
... and with that, Beatrix Potter remains relevant for young children more than a century later. What a wonderful phrase to repeat! My 3.5 yo loves it. I love the illustrations too (esp the kittens' eyes), the author's wit and proper use of language, even if old-fashioned at times and I have no idea what a tucker is.

What can one say about Beatrix Potter, she made the genre her own. The Radici part means it has been translated, and the preface pages are not quite English, but the body of the book is fine. I only wanted to bone up on the story, and that is all there.
