The story was republished in as The Tale of Samuel Whiskers in the small book format. Beatrix Potter dedicated the book to the memory of her pet rat Sammy whose full name was Samuel Whiskers. The story is a sequel to the book The Tale of Tom Kitten. Afraid that her son has been captured by the rats that infest the old house, Tabitha enlists the help of her fearless cousin Ribby  to conduct a thorough search. Even Ribby becomes alarmed, however, by the ominous roly-poly sounds coming from under the attic floor. Because the book was originally published in large format, The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding includes detailed color illustrations as well as black-and-white drawings. Many of the illustrations show the interior of Beatrix Potter's Hill Top farmhouse.
BY Beatrix Potter. Author of " The Tale of Peter Rabbit ". Etc :. Entered at Stationers' Hall. O nce upon a time there was an old cat, called Mrs.
He is an obese, short male rat who is married to Anna Maria. He is first seen when naughty Tom Kitten is hiding from his mother, Mrs. Tabitha Twitchit, and when he ends up in a pile of dirty rags, much to his own fear. Samuel calls over his wife who then ties Tom up, and he then requests a kitten dumpling roly-poly pudding for his dinner. He tries insisting on having it with breadcrumbs, but she denies it, telling him it calls for butter, dough and a rolling pin. Samuel reluctantly accepts the idea, and he goes into the dairy to steal a pat of butter and a rolling pin, unaware that one of Tom's sisters, Mittens, hiding in a big pot, is watching. As Samuel get back, he butters Tom, eating a bit of the butter while Anna Maria rolls out the dough.
