Beatrix Potter’s Christmas “The Tailor of Gloucester”
- Nov 24, 2017
When the mayor orders a coat for his Christmas wedding, the poor Tailor of Gloucester works his fingers to the bone. All goes well until the tailor realizes he lacks the piece of twisted silk needed to sew on the final button. But it is Christmas Eve, that one blessed night when animals are granted the gift of speech. Simpkin the cat and the house mice become steadfast friends and work together to complete a coat that leaves everyone speechless for a miraculously happy ending on Christmas Day.
