The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding

The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or, The Roly-Poly Pudding is a book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was first published in 1908 as "The Roly-Poly Pudding". In 1926 it was re-published as "The Tale of Samuel Whiskers". It features the cat family from "The Tale of Tom Kitten".

The hero is the young Tom Kitten; other main characters are the rat Mr Samuel Whiskers and his wife Anna Maria, who catch Tom Kitten and almost succeed in using him to make a roly-poly pudding.

The book is dedicated to the author's fancy rat Sammy "the intelligent pink-eyed representative of a persecuted (but irrepressible) race and affectionate little friend, and most accomplished thief".

An animated adaptation of the story was featured on "The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends" in 1993.
