    Grumpy Mrs Tittlemouse goes around trying to keep her sprawling tunnel of a house house impossibly clean while other creatures come in and make messes. There's some drama with some bumblebees and a bizarre toad ("tiddly widdly widdly!" "bizz wizz wizz!"). And there's a big mouse party at the end. Update: You know what? This actually grew on me a little. Something about her aggressive cleaning despite everything has gotten really funny.

I've been reading these books a lot because my kid loves them. I've grown deeply sick of the gender roles in these books, but of course they're a product of the stifling era in which they written.

    Mrs. Tittlemouse is definitely a neat freak, and probably suffers from OCD, but then again, she does have some pretty intrusive neighbours. Look at Mr. Jackson, the toad. He shows up, wet feet and all, repeating "tiddly, widdly, widdly", nonsense and then demands what may be the last of Mrs. Tittlemouse's honey, which when she tries to deny having any he tells her that he can smell the honey, and it was the precise reason for his visit. He then takes it upon himself to thoroughly search her home Mrs. Tittlemouse is definitely a neat freak, and probably suffers from OCD, but then again, she does have some pretty intrusive neighbours.

    This story was cool. She has some great pictures of bugs: beetles, spiders, ladybugs, etc. The niblings loved this story. Mrs. Tittlemouse is a neat-freak. She needs her house clean and those bugs are dirty. I think this is a story about OCD. She needs some help. She cleaned her house for a fortnight or 15 days. That is insanity. Beautiful artwork and I think this was is special

    Mrs. Tittlemouse, a character we met in the previous book (The Flopsy Bunnies), is now the main focus of this book. It is a cute story, but I do feel like there is a darker sub tone to it. As Mrs. Tittlemouse is a neat freak, she doesn't really want to have guest. Yet she is invaded - that is the right word in this instance - by various insects and critters, even Mr. Jackson the neighbour toad makes a mess in her home. However, he does manages to shoo away the unwanted bugs, only to be left out - Mrs. Tittlemouse, a character we met in the previous book (The Flopsy Bunnies), is now the main focus of this book.

Not much more, only that one should or would take pride in domestic chores and cleanliness.

    Mrs. Tittlemouse cleans her home while a sort of bestiary of uninvited insect (and other) guests are introduced. Equally interesting is the mysterious lack of information about Mr. Tittlemouse. Readers sensitive to depictions of insects might be disturbed by the detailed images in this book. Readers seeking a story about regular frustrations of cleaning and other domestic work should be entertained.

    I get a sense of the personality of Mrs Tittlemouse by some pictures and choice words. Concise. Doesn't Mrs' T's bedroom look oh so cosy? I get a sense of the personality of Mrs Tittlemouse by some pictures and choice words. Concise. Doesn't Mrs' T's bedroom look oh so cosy?

    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 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 friends would regularly fly in through the window. The bumble bees wanted to establish a home with Mrs T but she would not have it ; nor would she have Mr Jackson, a toad who lived in a drain below the hedge, as a lodger. But one day she returned home from shopping to find Mr J sitting with his feet on her fender. Mrs T humoured him and gave him some food but he was messy and Mrs T had to follow him around with a dish cloth to wipe his large footmarks off the parlour floor. Eventually, after Mr J had caused havoc in the tidy house, Mrs T said, 'Get out, you nasty old toad. I shall go distracted.' She won the day and he left after which she spent two weeks spring cleaning before, with her house nicely back in order she invited five other little mice to a party. Mr J was unable to get in for Mrs T had boarded up the door to make entry for him impossible but, out of the kindness of her heart, she handed him out of the window acorn cupfuls of honeydew. The generous Mr J replied with, 'Tiddly, widdly widdly! Your very good health Mrs Tittlemouse!' And thereafter her tidy life in her spotless home continued happily.

    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.

    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.

    I love Beatrix Potter, but this was not a book my children enjoyed. (I didn't really enjoy this one much either other than the amusing fact that my mother should play Mrs. Tittlemouse in a live-action version of the book.)

    Summary: This book tells the tale of how Mrs. Tittlemouse deals with the intruders that come into her home uninvited. What I thought of the book: Throughout the read, I could tell that this was an older book because of the language used. It is much more formal and has slightly different grammar than what we would use today. The use of the word ‘fat’ to describe an animal or a voice was used twice, but I can’t tell if it was supposed to be an insult or just a description.

What I thought of the book: Throughout the read, I could tell that this was an older book because of the language used. It is much more formal and has slightly different grammar than what we would use today. The use of the word ‘fat’ to describe an animal or a voice was used twice, but I can’t tell if it was supposed to be an insult or just a description. A main theme would be the idea of cleanliness being close to godliness. This theme might be connected to the deep religiousness of the author, Beatrix Potter. All of the unwanted/dirty animals might be symbolic of the sins that we must rid ourselves of during Lent. Why I rated it the way that I did: I don't think there is a direct lesson that could be understood by children who read this. There isn't much excitement either, which makes it slightly boring to read.

    The eleventh of Beatrix's tales is quite a short affair and rather dull. Though I can imagine this is exactly how little mice are in their little houses, becoming exasperated whenever an uninvited guest appears and tries to set up home inside their home. The darker elements of nature to Beatrix's stories is here, but not quite as developed in her previous stories and I didn't find Mrs Thomasina Tittlemouse particularly endearing.

    Ms. Tittlemouse is a little OCD mouse lady that likes to keep her home meticulously clean and tidy. Her home is rather extensive (she lives in a bank under a hedge with yards and yards of sandy passages) but also rather public as anyone can wander inside. And she does get a lot of visitors, often accidental such as lost beetles, a ladybird, a spider or bumblebees who sadly also make a lot of mess, which stresses Mr. Tittlemouse out.

    I can really relate to Mrs. Tittlemouse. All the poor woman (mouse) wants is to clean her house and for it to stay that way. I have a house full of children and, inevitably, as soon as I am done cleaning, someone who closely resembles Mr. Jackson messes it all up.

    A mouse tries to keep her home pest free and clean. This short story was good and the illustrations were eye catching. Reading time around ten minutes.

    The stories are darling, but not my favorite. The illustrations however are both darling and a favorite. Mrs. Tittlemouse is an inventive, if particular, little soul. Great eye for color though.
