THE TAILOR OF GLOUCESTER

by | Read by Michael Hordern

Children Ages 4-6 • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 1903

First published in 1903 by beloved author-illustrator Beatrix Potter, this story of an elderly tailor who snips cherry-colored cloth for a fine waistcoat is elegantly narrated by Sir Michael Hordern, who draws Potter's animal characters deftly, and with dignified restraint. Hordern's clear diction and unhurried pace captivate listeners of all ages as he describes how the tailor is beset by troubles (including an uncooperative cat, a snowstorm, and illness) before being aided by tiny mysterious hands. Even quite young children will enjoy this tale of Christmas Eve magic and will delight in how the littlest beings can save the day. J.C.G.
