Once upon a time there was a little fat comfortable grey squirrel, called Timmy Tiptoes. He had a nest thatched with leaves in the top of a tall tree; and he had a little squirrel wife called Goody.
Squirrels are very anxious about burying their nuts for the winter but they’re also very forgetful. When Timmy Tiptoes has a misunderstanding with some other squirrels he finds himself pushed through a cuckoo’s hole and at the bottom of a hollow tree.
Luckily a nice chipmunk is there to help Timmy, giving him lots of nuts to eat but then when Mrs Tiptoes comes to find him, Timmy finds he’s grown too large to fit out of the hole. What will Timmy Tiptoes do now?
Beatrix wrote this story to appeal directly to her American fans and featured animals of American origin (grey squirrels, chipmunks and a black bear) all living happily in the Lake District woods!
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Mrs Tittlemouse, the seventeenth book to be published, is number twelve in this series of charming stories.

“Actually Pretty 'Adult'”

"That Tale of Timmy Tiptoes" interestingly does not specify any of its characters to be children. The central characters are in fact two married couples. Yet what transpires would not be out of place... More
