About the Author:

Beatrix Potter (1866-1943). Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous little books. 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.

From AudioFile:

The voices of six British actors and actresses lend themselves beautifully to Beatrix Potter's classic tales. Their voices are varied and expressive without making them cartoon characters. Clear, slow enunciation and careful pacing make this a perfect introduction for even the youngest listeners. Original music by Carl Davis adds a sprightly air.The original illustrations on the jackets add recognition. Other stories available are MRS.TIGGY-WINKLE AND FRIENDS and THE ADVENTURES OF TOM KITTEN that includes standard favorites about Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Squirrel Nutkin, as well as some less-well-known characters and verses.
