Beatrix Potter's amazing universe of animals dressed in human clothing has taught and entertained children for over a century. This volume brings together twenty-one of Potter's tales and verses in one book. Hear Peter Rabbit outwit old Mr. McGregor, and Squirrel Nutkin come within a tail's length of being an owl's dinner. Listen as a family of mice save the kind tailor of Gloucester, and as Peter and Benjamin Bunny battle a barn cat. Learn how one fierce rabbit is set on the road to honesty. Although each story stands on its own, several are linked together by events and characters. The following stories are included in this book: -"The Tale of Peter Rabbit" -"The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin" -"The Tailor of Gloucester" -"The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" -"The Tale of Two Bad Mice" -"The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle" -"The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher" -"The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit" -"The Story of Miss Moppet" -"The Tale of Tom Kitten" -"The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck" -"The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies" -"The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse" -"Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes" -"The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse" -"Cecily Parseley's Nursery Rhymes" -"The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan" -"The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding" -"The Tale of Ginger and Pickles" -"The Tale of Mr. Tod" -"The Tale of Pigling Bland" -"The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes" The world of Beatrix Potter is as appealing now as when it was first created at the turn of the twentieth century.

Quotes & Awards

  • Narrating these stories, Kellgren sounds eminently British and appropriately old-fashioned. . . . Don't mistake old-fashioned for slow, however; her narration is vigorous and fast paced, filled with character accents and songs and even the very authentic-sounding chitters of a squirrel and meows of an angry cat.

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.
