The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood

Totally not what I had expected. Goes back and forth between people and animals (rats).

Loved it.

Following a series is always fun. I love escaping into the world of nature with a little fairyland added. Albert does a wonderful job weaving her plot into the world of animals and fairies into this one.

A Fun Read

I have enjoyed Albert’s fictional series about Beatrix Potter. They seem to be an ideal read for our current world situation. Potter enjoyed her time in the Lake District and found it stimulated her creative ideas for her stories. Albert works on this idea for the stories.

The book is well written and researched. Albert does an excellent job of creating what life might have been like for Potter. The story has people, animals and ,of course, children along with a mystery to solve. Hill Top Farm has a rat problem and, of course, in come the cats to solve it in a true Potter fashion. Some people may object to the anthropomorphizing, but I liked it. Albert is an excellent storyteller. I recommend this book.

The book is ten hours and 2 minutes. Virginia Leishman does an excellent job narrating the series. Leishman is an English actress and well-known audiobook narrator.
