It's been 110 years since Frederick Warne published Beatrix Potter's very first book, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit", and in celebration, we are delighted to be publishing special editions of her entire body of work. Unlike the traditional little white books, these editions have delightful colourful covers and specially designed endpapers. And to make them extra special, we have included a publisher's note to tell you all about the history of how each book came to be. "The Tailor of Gloucester" was first published in 1903 and tells the story of a poor tailor trying to survive in his freezing workshop over a hard winter. He has a terribly important commission to complete for the Mayor of Gloucester's wedding on Christmas Day but is ill and tired, and before long is running out of food and thread, as well as time! How will he possibly complete the beautiful coat and embroidered waistcoat? Fortunately, some very kind and very resourceful mice (who live in the dresser) set about helping the poor tailor with his work. Not only are they exceedingly helpful, but they are also, luckily, far far too clever for the tailor's sly cat, Simpkin. "The Tailor of Gloucester" is number three in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books.

“a charming story”

I was actually looking to buy a book for my niece and when I read the synopsis I decided to buy a copy for myself as well. It is a charming little book, that is beautifully accompanied with the illustrations. A book... More
