Quotes & Awards

  • “Beatrix Potter’s animal stories, the first of which was published in 1902, have been a joy to generations of young readers.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous little books.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “[A] delightful production…Nadia May’s dramatization is very good. Peter Rabbit is young and reckless, Squirrel Nutkin as rude as can be, the cats sound dangerous, and the mice in ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’—well, they sound just like the most sociable mice I know.”

    AudioFile

  • “Her tales range from stories of escape from near-death to charming, eventless catalogues of animal domesticity. Each one, however, was written with a natural ear for what she described as ‘fine-sounding words.’ Her illustrations usually showed animal characters wearing human clothes but otherwise treated without sentimentality.”

    The Cambridge Guide to Literature in English

  • “The tiny books, which she designed so that even the smallest children could hold them, combined a deceptively simple prose, concealing dry north-country humor, with illustrations in the best English watercolor tradition.”

    Merriam Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teddy M. | 1/23/2014

    " A classic book is a book that has withstood the test of time and has survived over the centuries. This is exactly what the complete tale of Beatrix Potter has done. Her story's are still being told to this day and are still being found intriguing by a younger generation. The complete tales of Beatrix Potter is a compilation of her best work as an author and features none other than the notorious Peter Rabbit along with other story's that many may have not herd of. The really cool part of this book is the fact that in more ways than one all of the stories are somehow related to each other. some may include characters from a past tale or foreshadow an event to come. In conclusion i feel that this book represents a lost time and can take you to a really magical place, i recommend it to those young and old. "
