Once upon a time there was a little girl called Lucie, who lived at a farm called Little-town. She was a good little girl - only she was always losing her pocket-handkerchiefs!
One day little Lucie came into the farm-yard crying - oh, she did cry so! "I've lost my pocket-handkin! Three handkins and a pinny! Have you seen them, Tabby Kitten?"

You will find her delightful writing making her book a good choice for bedtime stories. The Tale of Mrs. Tiggly-Winkle does mention some of the other characters found in Potter's books. You will find mention of Squirrel Nutkin, Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit in her charming story.
Recommend as a bedtime story for children of all ages.
I put this on my Kindle so it would be there anytime I was around the wee ones. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle was one of my (now grown) son's favorites of the Beatrix Potter series. The gentle creature character, personified in the simple bustle of life, is endearing. Her tales enable an imagination to soar.
