A pleasant surprise!

I got this audiobook thinking it was a China Bayles mystery and was disappointed at first when I found out otherwise. But I ended up really enjoying this story -- the story is engaging and well written and imaginative. Give it a try! It will make you smile.

The Tale of Holly How

This book makes a nice change of pace between more intense content books. When I read the first one in the series, I went and read a bio of Beatrix Potter and found it interesting. This is the second book and I found it delightful. Part of the story is of Potter's daily routine at her farm, the other is the animal stories told in the style of Potter. One feels good after reading this book.

This takes you back to a time.

I love the series. The narrator does an excellent job. Fantastic dialect, right amount of pauses. A delightful mixture of author and story teller.

Wonderful!

This audio version of the book perfectly captures the essence of the book and allows it to vividly come to life. Very well done.
