Classic childrens story with beautiful water colour illustrations.

Mrs. Tabitha Twitchett has dressed the kittens up in preparation for her tea party, but her children can not stay looking nice! They soon loose their clothes, which are stolen by the puddle ducks. After getting in trouble they have to spend the afternoon upstairs.

I like these books mostly for having seen <i>Miss Potter</i>, but the little kittens are adorable and of course I love the paintings.
