My kids liked it, but my husband and I could not bear it, speaking mainly of when he snorts narrating Piglet. It would be a delightful listen without that!
Based on the preview, I was looking forward to this - the narrator, Peter Dennis, has a very pleasant voice. Unfortunately, when he comes to the characters, this goes massively agley. Pooh sounds like a stoner. I could cope with that - except every line of Piglet's is concluded by a peculiar little snort. It's extraordinarily annoying.
I'm always looking for that well written gem.
The narrator's voicing for Piglet was excruciating. I cringed every time Piglet had a line. Unlistenable.
Peter Dennis takes you by the hand and walks you straight to the heart of the 100 akre woods from which all things Pooh are possible. Walk, don't run with Peter through every scrumptuous word ever written by A.A. Milne about the bear that belongs to everyone, Pooh!
Peter Dennis does an excellent job of doing the character voices.
Pooh. I've always loved Pooh.
I used this book as a bedtime story for my four and five year old daughters. The four year old has PDD NOS but loves Pooh and she would stop fighting and listen to it. The chapters are individual stories so you could read it in one sitting but it makes a great chapter read.
I'm so glad I purchased this.
Some narrators have a delightful voice to listen to when they have in British or Australian accent and others are just very very annoying. The snorting by piglet was super super annoying
A bookworm since a child. Love audible books.
This book is a charming story, but it would have been better if there was not snorting when piglet was read. The snorting really was annoying and distracted from the story. Peter Dennis has a nice voice, but an annoying snort.
Peter Rabbit. A charming children's story with animals as characters.
No snorting with piglet.
Not really. Though I enjoyed parts of the book, I could not get past the snorting when piglet talked.
I am wondering if children would enjoy the snorting. It is possible. I guess I am too old to favor it.
This is one of my all time favorite children's classic. It's a well-structured story, with great 3D characters, however, the narrator was too animated. I found his sound effects very distracting. Otherwise, it was enjoyable.
Pooh is a sweet lovable bear who I enjoyed greatly.He is an intriguing character who surprisingly I was not interested in until I was older. I think it is because when you are young you wish to be older so books for that age are what a young child thinks babyish.I thought that way until last summer I read it again and regonized its mirth and joy.Although it seems like a young childrens book I would reccomend it for much older children who will enjoy it.

Classic, timeless, fun! Much more fun than the movies, and very sweet. I highly recommend it for all ages. We started at 4, but my 9 year old enjoys the jokes she missed in her younger years.
