Summary

Written for the five-year-old son of her former governess, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was Beatrix Potter's first literary offering. Immensely popular upon its release in 1902, The Tale of Peter Rabbit featured a mischievous bunny who encounters a cranky old gardener and his cat. Beatrix Potter's work was notable for its lively illustrations of animals and imaginative characterizations of rabbits, squirrels, cats, and mice. Working with her future fiancé, Norman Warne, as her editor, she published two or three little books each year from 1902 through 1918. The initial 22 stories are included in this new audio edition.

Lovely version of these stories

My almost 3 year old loved these as soon as he heard them. They're required bedtime and chill time listening for him and he loves reciting bits that have caught his ear, squirrel nutkin's riddles are a favourite at the moment. The narrator does a lovely job reading these stories, a slower steady pace that is easier for littler ones to listen to, a nice calm manner that encourages attention to the story and focus on the lovely language used. Haven't made it past story 9 yet (we've had the early ones on repeat endlessly!) so with 8+ hours this is very good value. Would highly recommend it.

Narration, oh my!

Beatrix Potter, of course, needs no accolades here. This narration of Ms. Potter’s works does deserve some words, however. Ms Walker’s performance is more wonderful than I could possibly have imagined. Far more engaging than the voice in my own head! Endearing, humorous and absolutely delightful for my kids as well as myself! We will listen again and again.
