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...
My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
If you are wondering how synchronized images work, this would be the best way to find out. It costs nothing and takes very little time. I thought the story was cute, the pictures okay and I will get more with images and try some more Potter.
Story is predictable and is for very young children.
Just another girl with too many books and not enough time for them all.
Cute audiobook. The pictures on the screen change as the story goes along. Cute!
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'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
This price is right on this little snippet of a story. The art work and pictures are classics. Be sure to listen on a device that has a video screen.
This story reminds me of the books and clothed animal stories my grandmother always had in her home.
Short and sweet.
Kid's Story. Picture changes as the story progress.
voice: has a very story time tone. I personally found the voice alright, but she sounded like she had a stuff nose when she recorded it.
What can you say about Miss Potter? Her imagination was that of a child's but her talent was seasoned artistic genius. So grateful for all of the stories and this sweet one included!
