Story of Miss Moppet

The Story of Miss Moppet
By Beatrix Potter

THIS is a Pussy called Miss Moppet, she thinks she has heard a mouse!

THIS is the Mouse peeping out behind the cupboard, and making fun of Miss Moppet. He is not afraid of a kitten.

THIS is Miss Moppet jumping just too late; she misses the Mouse and hits her own head.

SHE thinks it is a very hard cupboard!

THE Mouse watches Miss Moppet from the top of the cupboard.

MISS MOPPET ties up her head in a duster, and sits before the fire.

THE Mouse thinks she is looking very ill. He comes sliding down the bell-pull.

MISS MOPPET looks worse and worse. The Mouse comes a little nearer.

MISS MOPPET holds her poor head in her paws, and looks at him through a hole in the duster. The Mouse comes VERY close.

AND then all of a sudden --Miss Moppet jumps upon the Mouse!

AND because the Mouse has teased Miss Moppet --Miss Moppet thinks she will tease the Mouse; which is not at all nice of Miss Moppet.

SHE ties him up in the duster, and tosses it about like a ball.

BUT she forgot about that hole in the duster; and when she untied it--there was no Mouse!

HE has wriggled out and run away; and he is dancing a jig on the top of the cupboard!


Our children's stories are a soup for the soul. A lot of them have been contributed by the very people who read them, our kids!
Our stories are entertaining, educational and fun to read.
Our goal is to encourage children to read and to strengthen the bond between a parent and a child. We believe imagination is a key to successful living, not just for children but for their parents too. So enjoy our stories, spend quality time with your family and don't forget to come back for more!
