Mrs Thomasina Tittlemouse, a wood-mouse, lived in a funny house with yards of sandy passages among the roots of a hedge. She had a kitchen, a parlour, a pantry, a larder and she slept in a little box bed in her bedroom.

She was a very tidy mouse but her world was regularly disturbed by the number of visitors she had. Beetles lost their way in the passages, a ladybird often visited her, a big fat spider occasionally called thinking that she was at Miss Muffet's house and a bumble bee and his frien

Mrs. Tittlemouse is a fastidious little mouse, living alone in a very clean house. Whenever another animal or insect comes to her home, she shoos it away and sweeps up after it; but when a swarm of bees make their home in one of her store-rooms she is pressed to allow her boorish toad neighbor Mr. Jackson to evict them. After he leaves, she laments the terrible mess made of her home, and sets to work straightening things up. When she is satisfied, she gives a civilized party for five other mice, ...more
Mrs. Tittlemouse lives in a cute little house that she keeps very clean. She is disturbed by a lot of visitors and she is very upset since she cannot keep her home clean. The bumble bees thinks that she has a very nice home wants to live with her. She wants no part of that. When she gets home she finds Mr. Jackson with his feet up in her home. She is very upset so makes the entrance of her home narrower so Mr. Jackson can not come in.

One of Beatrix Potter's least violent stories. Mrs Tittlemouse suffers from OCD (Obsessive Cleaning Disorder), so she is at her wits ends when her home is invaded by all sorts of grubby creatures. Her toad neighbour Mr Jackson sorts out a nest of bees who have taken up residence in an empty storeroom, and to celebrate she has a party (exclusively for other mice, clean mice I suppose), but doesn't invite him. He turns up anyway and is given a drink, which seems to be all he was after. Many cleani ...more

Mrs. Tittlemouse should've been named Mrs. OC-Tittlemouse. I enjoyed it very much, not bad Mrs.Tittlemouse after all, she's just being tidy and clean with her belongings, even threw a party to her mice friends.

All that I can say is "How great are Beatrix Potter's tales!". All of them make me travel to my first years of life...

Meant to rate/review this last month when I first read it aloud to my twin nephews as a bedtime story last month. It is just such a sweet and peaceful, yet mildly snarky at times, story that it has truly stood the test of time as a children's classic. The two almost-7-year-old video game lovers were entranced, as was their aunt.

This was one of my favorite tales growing up and the book I've read countless times. I just dug it up in the attic and had to re-read it again. It's beautifully illustrated, amusing and so well written.
If you have kids or just like tales, I highly recommend this one.

An interesting little story of a very tidy mouse indeed. I was relieved in the end that she could kick back when her chores were finished to have a little fun. Really amazing illustrations by Ms. Potter - it make the whole book.

Reading Beatrix Potter because I saw the movie about her and was delighted by her sensible delicacy and mixture of imagination and pragmatism.

A nice story about a wooden mouse who lives in a meticulously clean house. It is a good story to teach children about keeping clean. Recommended for all children.

Mrs. Tittlemouse is a cute little person who likes to keep her area clean. And I like how she calls the ladybug a beautiful old lady with a spotted cloak.

A cute little story about a clean, tidy mouse. I love how Beatrix Potter calls insects "people." Very humane of her...

"'Will it ever be tidy again?' Said poor Mrs. Tittlemouse." Oh, how I can relate!

Poor Mrs Tittlemouse just wants to have a clean and tidy house but she keeps getting unwanted/untidy guests turning up.

I suppose the moral of the story is to keep your front door shut or you might end up with bees living in your spare room!

Mrs Tittlemouse loves tidying up.

I loved The Tale of Peter Rabbit - but this Beatrix Potter left me feeling cold.

I just didn't relate to Mrs Tittlemouse - an obsessively tidy mouse. How is it that so many unininvited vistors make their way into her house? One or two beetles or spiders I could understand - but 13 just seems like uncharacteristic carelessness.

I've been fond of dear, fussy, little Mrs. Tittlemouse since I first met her eons ago. Her constant struggles with uninvited guests and a range of messy visitors is worthy of our admiration and sympathy. She does her best to be courteous to her neighbor Mr. Jackson while wiping up his damp footprints. She battles against insect intruders until 4 fierce bees send her in retreat to her nut cellar.
Her world improves after a two-week clean. She's a delight.

Poor Mrs. Tittlemouse has OCD when it concerns her house and how clean she expects it to be. Anyone who dares to mess up her house will be met with a rude awakening. It is a cute image to think of such a small little mouse getting so upset. Of course, it's cute in general to imagine a mouse having human characteristics.

I like this book for the vocabulary. It would be very interesting to do a lesson or a unit on picturesbooks. Read pictures books from long ago and read recent picturebooks. I would include this book if I did the lesson/unit on picturebooks. This could also be an anticapatory set on a lesson on vocabulary.

Mrs. Tittlemouse a little cute mouse obsessed with keeping her house clean she is pestered by all kind of intruders. Mr. Toad and the honey bees being worst among them.

I liked how this one let us get to know one character well, even though not much happened in the terms of a plot. The illustrations of the mouse were cute and the bugs and spider were creepy-crawly. Except the bee; I liked the way the bee talked and its name.

Another break from Pooh's Workout Book -- still flies in the apartment so we wanted to read about the toad who came to Mrs. Tittlemouse's in search of honey -- I can't remember his name now. But we liked the part where he snapped up Babitty Bumble!
