British Voice for British Bunny

Peter Rabbit is one of my childhood favorites, and Emma Messenger only makes it better. Loved how she draws out the words when this "naughty" rabbit is stuck under the fence. How she portrays him panting, and losing hope. Excellent performance, good pace, clear and comprehensible. Should be easy for children to visualize the story, picturing Farmer McGregor, the encouraging birds, the "good" bunnies at home under the tree.

Beatrix Potter. Famous British author, illustrator, and naturalist. A century ago, she really had a mischievous rabbit named Peter, according to the official BP website. He napped in front of her fireplace on a blue blanket. Hence, his fictional facsimile wears a blue jacket.

Well, he did have a blue jacket, until today, when he got caught stealing greens in Mr. McGregor's garden.
