"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." ---AudioFile --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943). Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous tales. A particular source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
