Almost Perfect

I got this even though I have another Beatrix Potter from Audible, which is also good, because it was Andrew Scott narrating. It does not disappoint. I will confess, firstly, that we have not yet listened to all the stories, but most of them. The Beatrix Potter stories themselves, of course, are lovely. If you're unfamiliar, they're enchanting, wholesome, sometimes silly stories about the British countryside and the animals (and occasionally people) who live there. Andrew Scott's narration is fabulous. He gives it a signature, almost creepy but not, whispery, delicate reading. His reading of Squirrel Nutkin is particularly good. My only complaint is that his voice is so variant that the volume gets very extreme and makes it a bit hard to not continually adjust. Sometimes the reading gets too quiet and then right after that too loud, and I'll have to adjust the volume. Just an FYI. It's a great audiobook.

Potter and Scott!

The tales we loved as children perfectly narrated. My kiddos love to listen to this at bedtime. (We skip Jemima Puddleduck and one other because they find them disturbing.) But otherwise delightful tales expertly interpreted. We especially love the way he whispers “the end” after each one- somehow makes it all feel more magical.
