Beatrix Potter Read Aloud Problem Solved

As I mentioned earlier, I’d been stumbling through Potter’s Complete Works because I just couldn’t get the rhythm of it.  Solved that problem today: Warmed up with a minute or so of a dreadful fake British accent.  Put the brain in just the right place.   Was then able to finish the Tale of Mr. Tod (using my normal voice, like a sane person), and it actually sounded good.  Great fun.

[Curiously: Reading Anne of Green Gables works beautifully if you accidentally give Matthew Cuthbert a southern accent.  Go figure.]
