The Story of Miss Moppet is a picture book by the English author and illustrator Beatrix Potter. It was first published in November 1906 in panoramic format, with the pages folded and tied closed with a ribbon. It was one of the two stories published in the special format for the 1906 holiday season.
The Story of Miss Moppet is a little sketch, a vignette rather than a tale, about a kitten’s attempt to catch a mouse. The model for Miss Moppet was a pretty and mischievous kitten Beatrix Potter borrowed from a mason at Hill Top, her country residence.
Beatrix Potter wrote The Story of A Fierce Bad Rabbit for Louie Warne, the young daughter of her publisher Harold Warne, who wanted a tale about a naughty rabbit quite unlike the nice Peter Rabbit.
