Publisher's Summary

Beatrix Potter's amazing universe of animals dressed in human clothing has taught and entertained children for over a century. This volume brings together 21 of Potter's tales and verses in one audiobook. Hear Peter Rabbit outwit old Mr. McGregor, and Squirrel Nutkin come within a tail's length of being an owl's dinner. Listen as a family of mice save the kind tailor of Gloucester, and as Peter and Benjamin Bunny battle a barn cat. Learn how one fierce rabbit is set on the road to honesty. Although each story stands on its own, several are linked together by events and characters.

What the Critics Say

"Be charmed as virtuoso narrator Katherine Kellgren shares 22 classic adventures of Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, Benjamin Bunny, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and more.... Narrating these stories, Kellgren sounds eminently British and appropriately old-fashioned. ("The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was first published in 1902.) Don't mistake old-fashioned for slow, however; her narration is vigorous and fast paced, filled with character accents and songs and even the very authentic-sounding chitters of a squirrel and meows of an angry cat. Good fun." (AudioFile)

    "How fun! A Newfound Treasure."

    What a great performance!

    The voices for the characters are perfect. Katherine Kellgren does not let up, reading with so much excitement for each of the twenty one stories.

    This recording holds up to Beatrix Potter's truly timeless tales.

    I look forward to years and years of replay. What a great find!

    "Timeless Classics"

    When I saw that Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter was an Audible Daily Deal I knew I had to purchase it. As a small child I had an record album with children's stories and Peter Rabbit was one of them. I loved the story of Peter Rabbit and often listened to it multiple times in a sitting. Although I knew the tale of Peter Rabbit I had not had the pleasure of reading Beatrix Potter's other classic animal takes. This audiobook is delightful, the stories are wonderful and Katherine Kellgren's narration never disappoints. I have no doubt that this is an audiobook that I will enjoy again and again.

    "Classic but Maybe Not for My Girls!:)"
    Would you listen to Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter again? Why?

    I bought this collection of timeless tales for my daughters' 5 & 6. I wanted something for bedtime however, the stories are a bit dark. Unfortunately, most of these frightened my girls.

    "Imaginings abound"

    Listening to these short stories carried me off to the World Of Beatrix Potter and her delightful tales of little animals. I do recall Ms. Potter almost always had a dangerously fearful climax for the little hero/heroine, until they barely escaped by the skin of their teeth. So for that, I'm not as much a fan, but such is life, and of that the authoress has composed it to be. And how grim it would've been if farmer MacGregor had eaten Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy & Cottontail in a rabbit pie?!

    "Very enjoyable!"
    Would you listen to Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter again? Why?

    Yes, Because the stories are good and they help me relax.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Todd and Tommy Brock and why because they teach us we shouldn't take what isn't ours and they are so disagreeable that they make me laugh.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No never have but I will in the future.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All were very nice. Timeless stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved that Ms. Kellgren read with such feeling and passion. You could tell she enjoyed the stories also.

    "Timeless Classics Indeed"

    Received this as a deeply discounted offer and I couldnt refuse. Delighted to hear these stories and poems again; its been so long. This would be ideal for young children that havent heard the tales.

    "Overly dramatic reading"

    Great stories, but the overly dramatic reading takes away from the writing. Maybe small kids would like it.
