First she fell asleep in her chair, and then she went to bed. "Will it ever by tidy again?" said poor Mrs. Tittlemouse.Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and she spent much of her otherwise conventional Victorian childhood drawing and studying animals. Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous series of little books.

In her youth she made beautiful microscopic studies of insects, working at the newly-built Natural History Museum in London. Many years later she was able to use these in her illustrations for The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse. Mrs. Tittlemouse, the wood-mouse who helped to rescue the Flopsy Bunnies in an earlier book, was given her own story in 1910, and Beatrix Potter created delightful pictures of all the uninvited insect guests, from spiders to bees, found in Mrs. Tittlemouse's underground home.
