I love Beatrix Potter books and the Miss Potter movie. One of my favorite books is The Tale of Tom Kitten. The following is one of my favorite pages from the book. In fact I have it framed and mounted on my wall at home.
She sent them upstairs; and I am sorry to say she told her friends that they were in bed with the measles; which was not true.
Quite the contrary; they were not in bed; not in the least.
(From The Tale of Tom Kitten by Beatrix Potter.)
