This is the definitive series of Beatrix Potter. As with all the Puffin Cover to Cover cassettes, the narrators are chosen to complement exactly the tone of the stories. Patricia Routledge's voice is aptly warm and lyrical yet down to earth. The music is specially composed by Carl Davis. The incidental watery music and gentle trumpet unobtrusively underly the narrative in Michael Hordern's superb reading of Jeremy Fisher. Timothy West, Janet Maw and Rosemary Leach read some of the other titles, The Puffin cassette have three or four stories on each cassette; Tempo has the same recordings with one story on one cassette very attractively packaged with the Warne paperback. Ageless and enduring.
