What the Critics Say

"Familiar creatures pop up along the way, including Pickles, a fox terrier that belonged to Hugh and may hold the secret to his master's death. As Beatrix reconnects with village life, her 1909 book, The Tale of Ginger and Pickles, begins to take shape. Readers will delight in Albert's special blend of fact and fiction." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Enchanting & Fun"

    I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the Beatrix Potter Cottage Tales. They are well written stories, and the narrater does such an amazing job that I find it difficult to read these books myself now without at least attempting to put in the normal accents and voices I'm so use to hearing. Each of these books is set in The Lake District of England and takes place during the various years of Beatrix Potter's life, always referring to whatever book she would have been working on during that time frame. Simplistic and enchanting stories that are fun for the whole family!

    "Beatrix Potter"

    I have listen to each of Ms Albert stories based on B. Potter. I have found them a pleasant change of pace. She divides the story between a historical fiction of Potter and the "animal stories" done in the Potter fashion. The description of the Lake District and the life style of the times is great. Looking forward to the next book.
