The Tale of two Bad Mice 1.79 MB - The Tale of Two Bad Mice is a children's book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter, published in September 1904. Potter took inspiration for the tale from two mice caught in a cage-trap in her cousin's garden/">home and a dollhouse being constructed by her editor and publisher Norman Warne as a Christmas gift for his niece Winifred. After finding the food on the dining room table made of plaster, they smash the dishes, throw the doll clothing out the window, tear the bolster, and carry off a number of articles to their mouse-hole. When the little girl who owns the dollhouse discovers the destruction, she positions a policeman doll outside the front door to ward off any future depredation.
The tale's themes of rebellion, insurrection, and individualism reflect not only Potter's desire to free herself of her domineering parents and build a garden/">home of her own, but her fears about independence and her frustrations with Victorian domesticity.
