Classic childrens story with beautiful water colour illustrations.

I really liked this book because it was a pop up book and so kids would really like that.

Fairly dull tale of kitteny mischief. In its favour, the pictures are lifelike as usual, at least as far as clothed bipedal animals can be. And I did learn the word "tucker" (item of clothing).

This is a very cute book with great alliteration and repetition. When I was younger I absolutely loved it and loved looking at the pictures. It is very fun for children to chant the little sayings along with you.

I like these books mostly for having seen Miss Potter, but the little kittens are adorable and of course I love the paintings.

I have only read one other book by this author before reading The Tale of Tom Kitten. The pictures are adorable, the story is cute, and I think younger children and their parents would enjoy reading about the naughty deeds of the three kittens in the story.
