One morning Lucinda and Jane had gone out for a drive in the doll's perambulator. There was no one in the nursery, and it was very quiet. Presently there was a little scuffling, scratching noise in a corner near the fire-place, where there was a hole under the skirting-board.

Would you like to meet two bad little mice?

Tom Thumb and his wife Hunca Munca have come to the nursery to explore, when they find the doll’s house empty (the dolls have gone for a drive in their perambulator) they think there might be all sorts of exciting things to discover there.

Imagine their disappointment when they find that the ham won’t come off the plates and neither will the fish and there’s nothing at all in the chimney, not even any soot. Then Hunca Munca remembers that she needs a new feather bed, perhaps there is something useful in the doll’s house after all.

One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny. 

Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Two Bad Mice is the fifth in her series of charming stories.
