Summary

A serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains.

When Miss Kitty sneaks out to go hunting in her beautiful boots, she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, but on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all - Mr. Tod!

This utterly entertaining tale is filled with mistaken identities, devious villains and even an appearance from Peter Rabbit, all brought to life by Academy Award Winner Dame Helen Mirren.

Also contains 5 more classic Beatrix Potter tales, read by Golden Globe nominee Anna Friel:

  • Tale of Peter Rabbit
  • Jemima Puddle Duck
  • Mrs Tiggy-Winkle
  • Squirrel Nutkin
  • Jeremy Fisher

Not keen on the narration

Far be it from me to criticise Anna Friel, who is in my experience an excellent actor, but I can't get over the rather strange accent here, which to my ear is part northern, part southern English. It is also a rather emotionless reading. A classic book read by good actors but something hasn't worked. Disappointing!

Lovely to listen to such classic stories..

There's something rather special about listening to Beatrix Potter and when the stories are so beautifully narrated by Helen Mirren and Anna Friel, well, you can't help but be captivated. Perfect listening for all ages.

Love it

Just the right speed and the delicious narrative unfolds. Better listened to or read to than passive reading. Just the job. Lovely voice. Thanks.
