This one is just TOO funny, with a morality tale about greed, thievery, losing one's temper, and repentance for one's sins as a bonus.
I have lived in many places where there were mice aplenty, and we co-habit-ed quite cordially for the most part. Ditto for the spiders, ants, and the occasional little lizards or baby snakes. The true persona-non-grata are the roaches and centipedes. I live in Japan, so there are a few others.
Anyway, a true gem of a story, with all of Miss Potter's other works, read over and over again to as many as will hear them.
