There's something for everyone in this story. First, there's a fantasy involving the drama between various small animals. There's also a fairy-tale note as children seek fairies on May Day. And among the adults in the story, there's the mystery of the curious new bride of Major Kitteridge. In the Lake Country of 1907, beloved visitor Beatrix Potter may be able to help all three groups. Virginia Leishman has a voice for everyone. She makes listeners familiar with the gossipy villagers, portrays the erudite Potter, and creates characters for the animals. Her once-upon-a-time tone makes listeners suspend their last bit of disbelief. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
