January 28, 2012 - Potter creates animal magic
The timeless tales of Beatrix Potter, adored by generations of children of all ages (up to 100!), do not condescend to childish language. There can be few greater children’s bedtime pleasures that listening to the unforgettable adventures, trials and tribulations of her host of delightful characters, including Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, The Flopsy Bunnies, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Tom Kitten, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Jemima Puddleduck.
These and all the other wonderful characters are brought to life on a complete and unabridged boxed set of audiobooks by a talented cast of readers, including Patricia Routledge, Timothy West, Michael Hordern, Janet Maw, and Rosemary Leach. It is available at a very reasonable price, as is a beautifully illustrated hardcover edition of the text of all twenty-three original tales. If you would like the stories as they were originally published then get The Complete Collection of Original Tales 1-23, but it is more expensive. Do get the audiobook and the text, whichever version of the latter you chose!
