We loved it!

I vaguely remember reading some of these stories as a child, but really only remembered Peter Rabbit so I decided to go back and reread the collection.Overall, it is a well put together collection of stories with a variety of characters. I loved that the stories were interconnected and that you were able to read about some of the characters relations such as Benjamin Bunny, Peter Rabbit's cousin. Obviously these are old stories so some of the terms and experiences are a bit outdated. There are ...more

For the last thirty-odd years a menagerie of porcelain figurines, dressed in late 19th Century clothing, have been occupying a prominent place in our china cabinet. My wife collected them when our children were still young. These animated animals, by their mere presents, have become as familiar as family, yet I really never actually knew their story. In order to learn about these already familiar figures I picked up and read Great Big Treasury of Beatrix Potter by Beatrix Potter. I can now put a ...more

So I made a stupid decision. I thought it would be clever to first listen to the audio for this story without looking at Bea's pictures. Then go back and experience the stories with pictures and check out the difference. I don't want to read these again because the stories are so dull, and the author's attempts at making everything rhyme are atrocious.

Those pictures better be worth it.

Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit is a classic in our family. I can remember my Grandma Vellys reading this story to me countless times. It's very nostalgic for me. Like Mother Goose, the Beatrix Potter treasury is full of characters and stories that are part of our culture. HOWEVER, there are a few stories that are a little alarming. When I was reading the story of The Fierce Bad Rabbit to Graham as a toddler, we were shocked to turn the page and read the next line: "This is a man with a gun". He a ...more

We read the story of the Two Naughty Mice today and my two youngest were laughing so hard they could hardly stay on the couch. Every time I read Hunca Munca they'd start all over again. It was the name, not the actions that were making them laugh.

Thus far the only story that really bombed was the Tailor of Gloucester.

Updated September 2010 -

It took us a while, but we finished. All the boys really enjoyed it. I was surprised that it held the attention of the older boys (ages 10) so well. I ofte

Some familiar stories and some unfamiliar ones. The strength (and weakness) of Potter is that she lived with animals and nature, so there are a lot of scenarios and endings which will be a bit too "real" for the tastes of a modern urban dweller (foxes do succeed in killing smaller animals for food, mice and cats are not compatible, etc.).

Kumpulan cerita Beatrix Potter dalam satu volume buku !
Selama ini saya hanya membaca kisah Peter Rabbit. Ternyata banyak sekali tokoh-tokoh lain seperti Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Duck, Tiggy Winkle, Tom Kitten dan kawan-kawan. Ilustrasi buatan Potter sendiri punya nilai tambah bagi kisah yang sedang dituturkan. Indah, lembut dan menggemaskan.
Tapi jangan terkecoh dengan ilustrasi yang manis saat anda membaca pie tikus yang lembut atau luwak yang menculik anak-anak kelinci untuk sarapan pagi. Horor

Charming illustrations, of course, and cute stories to read as an adult. Unfortunately, the writing is now so dated, it is half incomprehensible to young children. Potter is also very wordy, sometimes about nothing of any particular importance to the plot. Whenever I read these stories aloud to preschoolers, the children are bored. Abridged Potter tales seem to suit that age group better.

Beatrix Potter was one of my favorite authors as a little girl. (I was also a fan of the TV series "The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends".) There's a reason her stories are so enduring. Her delicate illustrations and straightforward storytelling resonate with children, especially very young ones. Generations have loved her work and I'm sure future generations will too.

Given to me by my grandmother's sister, my Great Aunt Pat. She loved all things Beatrix Potter, and encouraged us kids to read and be involved with stories and art. She's not around anymore, but I'd like to have a Beatrix Potter themed nursery one day... she'd like that.

This collection of Potter tales is wonderful she gives all the animals such real life qualities. I enjoyed them all, and I've got quite a few on audio.
