When one serious, well-behaved young black cat named Miss Catherine St. Quintin — or Kitty for short — decides to go a-hunting, she gets much more of an adventure than she had anticipated. In a tale dotted with familiar faces from Beatrix Potter's other classic tales such as Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Mr. Tod, Miss Kitty quickly finds that hunting is dangerous as she goes from predator to prey.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This previously unpublished story by Beatrix Potter, released on the 150th anniversary of her birth, is well served by the wry, unhurried narration of Dame Helen Mirren. Mirren captures all of the subtle humor as Kitty embarks on her nocturnal hunting adventures. Mirren’s rich, melodious voice embodies not only sly Kitty but also the various other characters, including a now grown up, and quite full of himself, Peter Rabbit as well as the charming hedgehog washerwoman, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. Fans of Potter’s work will be delighted to have this new, mischievous Kitty to enjoy, either as a stand-alone digital download or paired with the hardcover book…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866–1943), born in London, is regarded as one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher, and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist. Her books have been translated into nearly every language and have never been out of print.
