Once upon a time there was a Pussy-cat called Ribby, who invited a little dog called Duchess, to tea.
"Come in good time, my dear Duchess," said Ribby's letter, "and we will have something so very nice. I am baking it in a pie-dish - a pie-dish with a pink rim. You never tasted anything so good! And you shall eat it all! I will eat muffins, my dear Duchess!" wrote Ribby.

This cute little book is another great example of Beatrix Potter’s (1866-1943) work. The story is simple and yet fun, and the watercolor illustrations (also by Ms. Potter) are excellent. Overall, I found this to be a wonderful story, one that I enjoy reading to my little one. We both highly recommend this book!
Also, what is with the way the author name shows up as Beatrix, 1866-1932 Potter rather than Potter, Beatrix or simply Beatrix Potter.
