"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 MP3 CD edition.
About the Author
Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and spent much of her childhood drawing and studying animals. The Tale of Peter Rabbit¸ published in 1902, was her first book, expanded from an illustrated letter she had sent to a young friend. Beatrix Potter went on to publish more than 20 tales and collections of rhymes.

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 set contains a vast array of difficulty levels for kids who are ready for simple plots and more words, just beyond board books, all the way up to a couple of stories that will take a few nights to get through with an older child.
My daughter (now 2 1/2) insists on being told the tale of Jeremy Fisher or Mrs. Tiddlemouse or The Two Bad Mice, almost to the complete exclusion of her hand-me-down Dr. Seuss and Berenstain bears collections.
This box is a gem and we will probably be enjoying it for years.
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.
