Wonderful story about the beloved children's author! The narrative is superb! It takes me back to my introduction of these wonderful 📚
The author presents a straightforward yet inspiring recount of Beatrix Potter's life and legacy. I commend her for not adding unnecessary padding in the writing of this book. Instead she has let Beatrix Potter's life speak for itself. My enjoyment of the book was further enhanced by Patricia Routledge's excellent narration. Here I learned that Beatrix Potter was a remarkable, unconventional woman with many talents. Her deep love of nature and animals was interwoven into them all.
In the 1990's Patricia Routledge toured in a one-woman play about the life of Beatrix Potter- "Beatrix"- to great acclaim. Later, the play was recorded for BBC Radio 4, but it is not available to buy as a cd or on Audible. However, this recording of Judy Taylor's excellent book is a wonderful alternative to the play, and being a reading rather than a dramatisation, includes far more information. Patricia Routledge's reading is perfect.
