No thanks to his naughty cat Simpkin, the tailor of Gloucester has no more twisted silk thread to finish the coat he has promised the mayor for his wedding on Christmas day. With the help of some special friends, the tailor finds that a kind favor is returned. Meryl Streep narrates this sensitive retelling, accompanied by original music performed by The Chieftains to beautifully evoke the period, flavor and subtle humor of this wry tale from Beatrix Potter. Ages five and up. Part of the award-winning Rabbit Ears series, Storybook Classics. Nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording for Children.
