Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter

Finished April 28
Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter by Beatrix Potter, read by Katherine Kellgren

This collection of Beatrix Potter tales is charming. Containing twenty tales and two small collections of nursery rhymes, this covers all the favourites plus the lesser known ones. The disc contains both the audiobook and a pdf ebook, so you could follow along with the reading if you wanted to.
I just listened, and Kellgren made the stories come alive. I heard her speak recently and she talked about how she listened to nature recordings to learn the sounds that the animals made so that she could more accurately recreate them. She has done an amazing job here,
This is a lovely collection and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
