RABBIT EARS STORIES BY BEATRIX POTTER The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher, and The Tailor of Gloucester

by | Read by Meryl Streep

Children Ages 4-6 • .75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

This gem of a collection includes three favorites. Meryl Streep is the perfect reader of these classic stories. As narrator, she engages listeners with her formal, elegant diction and impeccable pacing, then wows them with her ability to create characters, from disobedient Peter, who sneezes and sobs in a watering can, to the tiny squeaking mice (" no more twist!" ), yowling cat, Simpkin, and gruff-voiced old tailor. Add to her wonderful voice the original music of the Chieftans and Lyle Mays, whose little riffs and illustrative musical expressions can create the twitch of a cat's tail and the slosh of water, and the result is a quality listening experience.
