"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.

If you're interested in more information about Beatrice Potter, I recommend the movie about her life called Miss Potter.Miss Potter
I really enjoyed the additional information about Beatrice and the About This Book page at the beginning of each book which gives details about when each book was published and other little details about how the stories came about.
The 7yo really enjoyed the stories, especially the ones in which Peter Rabbit or members of his family appeared. Also, while each story stands alone there are references to prior events and characters and this was fun to notice when reading them in order. This edition itself includes a brief biography of Beatrix Potter at the front and prior to each story is a short introductory paragraph detailing connections in the story with Potter's real life. All the original illustrations, including the original front covers illustrations, are included and this is a book that can be browsed through just for the gorgeous watercolours and sketches.
