Publisher's Summary

Beatrix Potter's amazing universe of animals dressed in human clothing has taught and entertained children for over a century. This volume brings together 21 of Potter's tales and verses in one audiobook. Hear Peter Rabbit outwit old Mr. McGregor, and Squirrel Nutkin come within a tail's length of being an owl's dinner. Listen as a family of mice save the kind tailor of Gloucester, and as Peter and Benjamin Bunny battle a barn cat. Learn how one fierce rabbit is set on the road to honesty. Although each story stands on its own, several are linked together by events and characters.

What the Critics Say

"Be charmed as virtuoso narrator Katherine Kellgren shares 22 classic adventures of Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, Benjamin Bunny, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and more.... Narrating these stories, Kellgren sounds eminently British and appropriately old-fashioned. ("The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was first published in 1902.) Don't mistake old-fashioned for slow, however; her narration is vigorous and fast paced, filled with character accents and songs and even the very authentic-sounding chitters of a squirrel and meows of an angry cat. Good fun." (AudioFile)

I lot of these stories are familiar, such as the country mouse and the town mouse. There is even a pig that goes to market. Like all collections, some stories are better than others, but I believe kids will love them all, especially with the lively reading by Kellgren.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

How fun! A Newfound Treasure.

What a great performance!

The voices for the characters are perfect. Katherine Kellgren does not let up, reading with so much excitement for each of the twenty one stories.

This recording holds up to Beatrix Potter's truly timeless tales.

I look forward to years and years of replay. What a great find!
