Not keen on the narration

Far be it from me to criticise Anna Friel, who is in my experience an excellent actor, but I can't get over the rather strange accent here, which to my ear is part northern, part southern English. It is also a rather emotionless reading. A classic book read by good actors but something hasn't worked. Disappointing!

Lovely to listen to such classic stories..

There's something rather special about listening to Beatrix Potter and when the stories are so beautifully narrated by Helen Mirren and Anna Friel, well, you can't help but be captivated. Perfect listening for all ages.
