Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales (Boxed Audio Set) £10.33 @ Amazon
All of my children have grown up with the Beatrix Potter stories but it's my youngest who fell in love with them most; his favourite story, by far, is The Tale of Jeremy Fisher.
Whilst other stories and characters, like Thomas the Tank Engine, have fallen out of favour due to him being 'too grown up for baby stories', Jeremy Fisher remains on his top three bedtime stories list (he's five-and-a-half by the way, just in case this is your first ever foray into the world of PlayPennies; welcome!).
Six CDs make up this fabulous Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales audio box set; all 23 stories are included, are unabridged and read by some of the following actors Patricia Routledge, Timothy West, Michael Hordern, Janet Maw, and Rosemary Leach.
Reviews from people who've already bought it are gushing, to say the least...
Having great actors like wonderful Patrica Routledge (Hyacinth Bouquet, Hetty Wainthropp etc)reading the stories from classic Beatrix Potter's wast universe really is nothing less then magnificent!
This compilation is a fantastic gift for children and adults alike. Beautifully presented in a pack of 3 double cd's in a carboard caseing, it is easy to store as well.
23 stories consisting of a good six hours listening! All of the characters in Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddleduck, Jeremy Fisher and the rest, really comes to life!I just love this, as does my children.
Well worth buying!
At £10.33 instead of £20 I'd grab one from Amazon before they a) sell out or b) put the price up.
