    " Her word choice and her pacing are musical and charming. Her humor is sly, and the children can enjoy the simple tales of adventurous animals while the adults muse upon Potter's all around poetic cleverness. She is one of my favorite read aloud authors, and the pictures are an excellent bonus. "

    " I think this would have been much better if I just read the book and could see the illustrations. The narrator did a good job, but listening to this as an audiobook just wasn't the same. "

    " I love this book. It was the first book I bought when my daughter was born. I'd read to her every night from it for years. The topsy turvy quaint writing style and stories are adorable. Plus I played Mopsy in my 2nd grade play. :D "

    " I had this book as a child growing up. Funny quirky stories that I immensely enjoyed. I would buy this book for my children. "

    " I just adored all of my little Beatrix Potter books when I was a child, and read them over and over. Lovely illustrations and stories that every little child will love (and their parents as well). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriela | 5/19/2011

    " One of my absolute favorites as a child. First book that I gave to my baby brother. That's how meaningful it is to me. Beautiful stories and illustrations to die for. "

    " These were some of my favorite stories as a child. They give me a very nostalgic feel when I read then over again, about thirteen years after first picking them up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 1/16/2011

    " Miss Potter's tales help me feel like a little child again. I love that joyful feeling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 9/20/2007

    " When my college sophmore daughter was young, these were her favorite books. What always amazed me with Beatrice Potter is how she would dress these animals in clothes, and at the same time have them act largely through animal instinct. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 8/12/2007

    " A classic in children's literature. I love returning to these stories, especially Squirrel Nutkin (my all-time favorite!), because of how sweet they all are. I love Potter's beautiful illustrations, and just how whimsical it all is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 8/7/2007

    " Over and over I read these..."The Tale of Two Bad Mice" being a particular favorite, and always intrigued by the sinister nature of "Jemima Puddleduck."

About the Author
Author Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866–1943), born in London, is regarded as one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher, and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist. Her books have been translated into nearly every language and have never been out of print.
