You're right, Tim.  "She said "Hello, and please do note / My lovely furry wolfskin coat"" (or words to that effect).  Revolting Rhymes.  I loved those.  :)
"And when she goes from place to place
Please note her pigskin travelling case."  :o

Another line, from a well-known tale recycled by Mr. Dahl:

"They kissed young Snow White fore and aft."

That's one that's lost on 8-year-olds, although I have a suspicion that had Julian been in my class when she was 8 that statement wouldn't have been true. (looks for finger-wagging smiley).
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

No.

Isn't Bagpuss a TV programme rather than a book anyway?
