Classic Tales Book 5 – The Tale of Two Bad Mice
Beatrix Potter often based her stories on real places or creatures. For ‘The Tale of Two Bad Mice’ she used her own two pet mice, Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca, as models for the principal characters. The doll’s house belonged to a little girl who was her publisher’s niece. But the story of what happens when two mischievous mice invade an elegant doll’s house is entirely imaginary.
