Cute little story and very typical! I forgot how short some of her stories are! It is age appropriate for young children, as all the B.P. stories are. Narrator also evokes a B.P. style very well.
What the prior reviewer may not have realized is that in England, then and now, the term "Pussie/ Pussy" is what cats are called, along with "Puss" and not at all a derogatory term. This term also used in Mother Goose nursery rhymes. If a possible problem, perhaps an explanation of this as the proper use of the term as used would be in order. However, it would seem more appropriate not to make anything of it at all...
LOVE ROMANCE, HISTORY, AND STRAIGHT SHOOTERS
A fan of all of Beatrix Potters stories, I was excited to download this one - bringing me back to my childhood bedtime moments. The narrator did a fine job matching the childlike persona's of the characters. Definitely a lovely listen.
I listened to this on my mobile phone in the audible ap, and saw out of the corner of my eye, that the picture kept changing to match the story. The description does say that it is an enhanced audio format, but I didn't realize that, until I realized the pictures went along with the story.
Also, it was just over 2 minutes long, the details say 1 minute.
Overall, a pleasant surprise.
Because I loved the illustrations so completely, I would prefer the print edition under most circumstances.
I really liked the narrator's voice and the pictures the words painted.
Gale brings a most delightful rendition and inflection.
She has the perfect bedtime tale voice, also suited to enchanting children and drawing them in to a story.
It was a very short tale, only 2 minutes long.
I listened to it more than once each time.
Liven up the character
A little less bouncy
It wasn't long enough to answer this?
Yeah good try don't give up!
Yes. I love BP and the narration was lively.
Make it longer
There were only two.
Loved the illustrations. Great little story for a child.
The absolute only reason i can't let the children listen to this book is because it starts out with pussy cat without the cat. I have a 6 and 7yo and this is just asking them to be put out of school t for language because they sense something wrong with the language and keep repeating the word inappropriately. no wonder it was free.
