    Am I the only one who was really creeped out by this book as a kid I had the animated TV adaptation on VHS that my grandmother sent from Ireland and I had the book as well Both were very disturbing if in this fantasy realm where animals are all like a variety of people, does that make these two married rodents serial killers who kidnap children and bake puddings out of them Weird Not uncommon though in Potter s stories animal fatality and pigs and ducks being eaten seem to be running themes in her work It s not that it s a bad story I just don t really see the charm in it It makes me think of cannibalism or a stranger danger PSA.The illustrations were the uplifting points for me I loved how the drawings bring the animal characters to life and personify them just like human beings It s an interesting take on pets and nature that gives every creature a voice in the same manner as you might see in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, making it an intriguing book despite the morbid happenings It d make a good Halloween story.

    It s crying out to be filmed by David Cronenberg Here s how I imagine his treatment of the pivotal scene Interior The home of SAMUEL WHISKERS and ANNA MARIA The two mice, who have tied up TOM KITTEN and covered him in pastry, are about to bake him alive SAMUEL WHISKERS His tail is sticking out You did not fetch enough dough, Anna Maria He takes out a mirror and cuts a line of coke, which he noisily snorts ANNA MARIA examines TOM KITTEN, leaning forward so that her ample mouse cleavage is exposed ANNA MARIA I fetched as much as I could carry.SAMUEL WHISKERS I do not think it will be a good pudding It smells sooty Using an axe, he chops off TOM KITTEN s tail Blood spurts everywhere SAMUEL WHISKERS That s better.

    Delightful little book, my first Beatrix Potter Discovered two little Potter books on my bookshelves recently while cleaning up Hey what s this haven t read those yet must have picked them up in a second hand bookstore I absolutely loved the story and especially also the illustrations and black white and colour drawings of the cats, the kittens and the rats Could imagine this is a bit of a scary story for the little onesWill continue to read Beatrix Potter definitely.

    Beatrix s longer tales are so much better than her short forays in to the little worlds of animals They have a darker side that the first book never seemed to have, though since it was her first we can allow her that.At first, I wasn t keen on the black and white illsutrations that have accompanied the last few of Beatrix s books, but actually, in a longer story like this one, they fit in so well because you don t have pages and pages of texts without the magic that her watercolours usual bring They also add another interesting dimension to Beatrix as an artist, as it s not only watercolours she was proficient in, but could convey the personfications of animals really well through any medium.The story itself appealed to my cat dislike side, but it was not her best It seemed to be a little bit about nothing, and the ending faded away a little too dully Not her best, but not her worst.

    When I was a child this book gave me screaming nightmares about being smothered in pie dough and dragged between the walls of my house where no one could find or hear me being eaten by rats I didn t even know there were spaces between walls in houses until I read this book The rats rolled up the kitten into a pie drawn very realistically and were going to bake him alive Thank you very much, Beatrix Potter.It took me a while to find this book to review, since my copy was called The Roly Poly Pudding I would never give this book to a child.

    Sweetest Beatrix Potter that I have read to date A house of cats with mischievous kittens who all are afraid and pestered by the huge number of rats in the house Samuel Whiskers is the father rat who lives along with his wife in the same house Tom Kitten gets into trouble while trying to hide away from his mother and gets into the hands of Samuel Whiskers Potter tells us the story of how the rats started to spoil the farmers produce and how the cats started hunting for the rats These arch enemies have always been cute Ever since my first view of Tom and Jerry

    Oh my god, I remember reading this when I was a little kid My mom bought the VHS for me that had all the stories animated I can honestly say this one traumatized me I know it s a book, but it gave me nightmares when I was younger I seriously thought Tom Kitten was going to meet his death and be baked into a pie by the two rats FREAKY FREAKY So disturbingback in the day this must have done a good job teaching kids not to disobey their parents The moral is if you don t listen to your parents you will be wrapped in dough and eaten by evil rats that live in your walls.
