"Nadia May's dramatization is very good. Peter Rabbit is young and reckless, Squirrel
Nutkin as rude as can be, the cats sound dangerous, and the mice in "The Tailor of Gloucester"well,
they sound just like the most sociable mice I know."AudioFile
This collection of eighteen of Beatrix Potter's charming stories about Peter Rabbit, Tom Kitten, Squirrel Nutkin,
Mrs. Tittlemouse, and the others have enchanted children for over a hundred years and will surely do so well
into the future. Beatrix Potter's tales were often connected with real places, people, or animals, so each story
also includes a brief introductory note about its history.
Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) born in Kensington Square, London, England, was raised by governesses and nurses, with little interaction with her parents. Alone in the third floor nursery, she spent her time studying and sketching the small animals that were her closest companions. Her brother Bertram was born six years later and for a time they became inseperable companions. In the summers the Potter rented a house in the Scottish highlands and here the children would spend joyous hours exploring the countryside, gathering plants, insects, rocks and fossils.
Nadia May has been nominated as an AudioFile Golden Voice five years running and is a winner of thirteen AudioFile Earphones Awards. She is the co-founder of TheatreFirst, a theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area where she currently lives.
