One of the few children's books I've revisited lately with my kids that has held up to the high regard I gave it as a child. I was just as enchanted with the illustrations & stories now as I was back then. I could literally see my daughter falling under the same spell, and of course everyone got much enjoyment over the copious use of "his nuts" etc in The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. #hes9shes5 #itsinevitable

This is the best Beatrix Potter collection ever! I still have mine from when I was a kid. It is so well loved that it is held together by tape and a prayer, but I'll never get rid of it!

I remember being mesmerized by the gorgeous illustrations in this book--the soft colors, the realistic-yet-fanciful depictions of the characters and their surroundings--when my parents read it to me as a kid. Recently I re-discovered the collection, realized I remembered more about the illustrations than about the stories themselves, and thought it might be fun to read them again. I was a little disappointed with the choppiness of Potter's prose, and the heavy-handed message of the Peter Rabbit ...more
In the beginning Jim Weiss (as much as I love his stuff) doesn't get the characters voices right. Peter Rabbit especially sounds nothing like what I'd ever imagine. But as the stories go on, it gets better, and toward the end, some of the characters are great. My kids never seemed bothered by the odd selection for Peter's voice. They listened to these timeless stories over and over.
As much as I enjoyed the stories (& I did), Jim Weiss narration was very sugary & off-putting. So much so that the five year-old I was listening with asked "what is wrong with that man". I wish it had been read without the lispy character voice.

What can I say?! I love these stories when I was a child; I read them to my children over and over; I'm looking forward to reading them to my grandchildren!

Indeed this book could have been entitled Mr. MacGregor's Garden...but the illustrations & love & intensity with which Peter ravages the garden....

I just saw a movie about this author, it starred Renee Zellweger. Very good. But the books are classic. Great!!!
Convenient collection of these wonderful stories, but it's hard to beat the individual small books.
