This is my absolute favourite Beatrix Potter tale about a tailor who is to make the coat for the mayor's wedding but falls ill. Instead the mice creep in and finish it for him so that when he awakes after three days the coat and waistcoat are quite finished apart from one buttonhole and a note saying "no more twist". It is really a play on the old "Elves and the Shoemaker" story. The language in the story is quite old fashioned but it is lovely to read aloud.
