Description

Out stepped a little live lady mouse, and made a curtsey to the tailor!Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and she spent much of her otherwise conventional Victorian childhood drawing and studying animals. Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous series of little books. She described The Tailor of Gloucester as her own favourite among her books.It was based on the true story of a tailor who once left the unsewn pieces of a coat in his shop and then found that the garment had been mysteriously finished for him in the night.Although it turned out the real tailor’s assistants were his apprentices, in Beatrix Potter’s version of the story the secret helpers are skilful little brown mice who save the kindhearted tailor from disaster.
