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.

"Kellgren's British accent lends an air of authenticity. She brings each character clearly into focus." ---School Library Journal Audio Review

"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

"Beatrix Potter’s world of clothed and cunning animals springs to life in Kellgren’s spirited narration of these well-loved tales." ---Booklist Audio Review
