Summary

Whether you're a parent or a child, a young reader or an older one, "The Great Big Treasury of Beatrix Potter" is indeed just that - a treasure chest of delightful, charming little stories full of animals and people. Beatrix Potter today has spawned a whole industry of merchandise, games and theme parks, but the stories remain as fresh and sparkling as they were when they first came out in 1901.

The stories "The Great Big Treasury" are a mixture of moral fables and fascinating descriptions of nature and Victorian childhood naughtiness. Peter Rabbit's stories have been translated into nearly forty languages and adapted for stage, film and television, converted into animated cartoons and toys, children's room accessories, furnishings and wall-paper.

awful narration

the narration is awful, very forced and not very easy to listen to. I don't like that it has very small exerts from each story, would be better if it was more than just one chapter for each, my children don't have time to get into it properly before it's over. I didn't pay much for the audible version but I wouldn't even say it's worth that. it's a shame because these are classics
