Great book!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales to be better than the print version?

Probably. The audio edition has musical and sound effects that makes it more fun to listen to. My toddler son loves to listen to this book. Whenever he's in the car I would ask him whether he likes to listen to music or story and his reply has always been "rabbit story". I have tried to play other books in the car but he would scream and wanted to hear this book instead.

Thoroughly Classic

You can't get children's stories more idyllic than these. Delightful narratives read and musically accompanied, you won't regret this purchase at all.

Beautifully read!

Beautifully read with gentle introductory music for the different chapters. The only thing I don't like is that there aren't chapter names, so you don't know which story it is until it starts playing.

What did you love best about Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales?

I love the narration. So soothing and lovely to listen to. And the stories and just wonderful classics. It is soothing for my toddler to listen to before naptime, during nursing, and in the car.

new bedtime ritual for my little girls

I chose this audio book for my 4 and 6 year old girls as I thought they will soon grow out of these kinds of stories. It has become a lovely bedtime routine and my eldest has pulled out their hard back version to read along to. I do have to remember to collect the ipad or it'll play well into the night being 5 hrs plus!

A excellent listen

Like nearly everyone else has reviewed a wonderful collection of stories. We have the book as well, so my little boys love to hear this in the car after a long day out. Nicely told with the different voices used. Overall a good choice.

Lovely recordings but shame about the metadata

The stories are classics and the recordings are great but the metadata is terrible. It's impossible to identify which story is which without waiting to hear the intro. Could Audible and/or the publisher please label the different tales by their names rather than as chapter 1,2,3 etc?

Review by a four year old

"I loved all the stories and people talking, I think other boys and girls would like the different stories too! I liked all the stories and couldn't choose a favourite. I listen to them at sleep time and they help me get to sleep and have good dreams" - Caleb. 😁

This isn't available so I feel completely ripped o

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Unfortunately I purchased (with a free voucher) this title only to discover AFTER the purchase it isn't an audible book even tho it was advertised as such. It seems too be a scam to get people to sign up.

Has Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales put you off other books in this genre?

No, the story is a good one but Audible books did not deliver.

Any additional comments?

Don't advertise and sell titles as audible books if they are not audible.
