“I don't like beetles, tho' I'm sure they're very good, / I don't like porridge, tho' my Nanny says I should; / I don't like the cistern in the attic where I play, / And the funny noise the bath makes when the water runs away. / I don't like the feeling when my gloves are made of silk, / And that dreadful slimy skinny stuff on top of hot milk; / I don't like tigers, not even in a book, / And, I know it's very naughty but I don't like Cook!”
“There are fairies at the bottom of our garden! / They often have a dance on summer nights; / The butterflies and bees make a lovely little breeze, / And the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.”
“I think mice / Are rather nice.”
