The Tale of Two Bad Mice is one of Beatrix Potter's early works. In it, a pair of mice explore a dollhouse while the occupants are out and wind up trashing the place.


This book provides examples of:

  • Children Are Innocent: The girl who owns the dollhouse decides to prevent further mouse break-ins by getting a policeman doll.
  • Civilized Animal: Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca.
  • Dull Surprise: Jane. She's a doll after all, so it's not like she can move her face.

  • Living Toys: Lucinda and Jane.
  • Unholy Matrimony: The two bad mice in the title are also a married couple.
  • Women Are Wiser: While Tom Thumb indulges in aimless vandalism, his wife ransacks the house for things that would actually be useful to them.
