The DVD consists of 3 episodes of about 25 minutes each - just long enough to have a welcome break from toddler watching but not too long to feel you are allowing them to become square-eyed couch potatoes. Each episode is clever blending of 2 of Beatrix Potter classic books for children. Tales featuring some of her best known characters are included in this DVD; Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, The Flopsy Bunnies, Mrs Tittlemouse, Tom Kitten and Jemima Puddleduck . The animation is really exquisite, with superbly witty characterisation and attention to detail, and so completely true to the originals that it is a pleasure for even the keenest Beatrix Potter fans to watch them. No disappointments or nasty surprises as with so many book-to-film adaptations. There are a few slightly scary moments to beware of for younger children (e.g when Mr McGregor chases Peter ) but once the episode has been watched a few times it loses it's scariness.
Each episode starts and finishes with a beautifully acted 2-3 minute live action introduction with Niamh Cusack as Beatrix Potter and this adds welcome variety and interest and is beautifully filmed at Beatrix Potters House in the Lake District.Read more ›
my concern was i bought this twice as part of a deal by 3 dvd's and get them cheaper and on it's own for far more than the other 3 together
A book that can be read again and again.
