    Story
    "A must read for Beatrix Potter fans!"

    I'm a Beatrix Potter fanatic, with a house full of her books, china figurines, and stuffed animals. Susan Wittig Albert has taken the history of Potter and the charming style of talking animals to create a beautiful series of mysteries featuring Beatrix in her home in The Lake District of England, with historical characters and her animal friends.

    In this book, in 1911-12, a "flying bird" --the hydroplane-- is disturbing the tranquility of everyone in the district. Beatrix, and her fiancé, Will Heelis, are deciding how to tell their plans to her parents, who are bound and determined to keep Beatrix single so she can care for them in their old age. Then, threatening letters are scaring Beatrix's friend who is planing to marry the new vicar.

    In the animal arena, a surprise birthday party is in the mix, a Jack Russell Terrier saves a man's life, and a dragon searches out the "flying bird" with an owl. Lots of fun with dialogue reminiscent of Potter's actual children's books. Great fun read!

    Story
    "Has historical information that was great the hear"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story fits into Ms Alberts series but it can be heard without hearing other books. If you love animals who seem to talk to you, this is a great tail (tale).


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Audible stories are for pleasure and relaxation so this tale does this for me by moving to a different place and time and away from this world of business.


    What does Virginia Leishman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms Leishman is a wonderful actress in the story and characters are easily separated by her story telling.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love all the series and I was just as pleased with this tale. I love the animals story woven into the human story!


    Any additional comments?

    I will buy all the books in this series because they are great stories if you love the world where people are polite to each other and the "bad people and animals" and the issues they create are resolved in clever ways.
