Gorgeous edition of all the Peter Rabbit stories. Though they are pretty scary reading as a grown up - literally Peter Rabbit's mum is nonchalantly like 'don't play at Mr McGregor's garden, he cooked up your dad & ate him' then leaves her bunny children unsupervised for the day. What does she think is going to happen??? As if the kids aren't going to go STRAIGHT TO FORBIDDEN PLACE.
Then Peter spends one of the sequels seriously traumatised by his visit to said garden to the point where he bas
Ok, never read Beatrix Potter as a kid (though I have heard of Peter Rabbit and recognized her illustrations pretty well because she's so popular) so reading this for school was really my first time ever but ohmy, this book. IT WAS AWESOME. It had things that I don't think children's books could get away with saying nowadays. For example in "Tale of Peter Rabbit" the mother warned the bunnies not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden because their father was captured and baked into a pie and it SHOWS ...more

So cute even after all these years reading them again
Beatrix Potter's stories of personified animals are a delightful tour of the themes that shape our lives: obedience... and disobedience, adventure, greed, guilt service, service, hard work, telling the truth, love, and on and on and on. These impressions are colored with Potter's whimsical mark of narration and illustration. A family treasure. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, marvelous drawings, but some stories didn't raise to my expectations.

[Quick review from memory until I re-read and re-review at a later date:

I've never really thought about Peter Rabbit much and I don't remember anything about this at all. Is that an omen?]

I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read most of these lovely little tales before, and I'm glad to have them all in one place. This version contains 17 of Beatrix Potter's stories, and can be enjoyed all at once or spread out over a few week's worth of bedtimes. These stories are really meant to be read aloud. Beatrix Potter's illustrations are beautiful, but I enjoyed this audiobook with only her simple words to draw the pictures.

Laurel Schroeder is an excellent choice as the voice actor, she read t

Sometimes I get on a classic kick/have an urge to read stories that are regarded as classics, such as with this one. Peter Rabbit wasn't a part of my childhood, but I figured I'd give it a shot and see what I thought of it as an adult. I read it and . . . well, I can't say that I liked it. I'm not sure if it was because I didn't have nostalgia for it, if I found the characters unmemorable, or that I found Peter Rabbit rather obnoxious/certain parts of it disturbing, but I just didn't care for it ...more
