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!
Every time piglet says anything, he ends his sentence with a disgusting grunting noise. This was not in the book, and it is distracting and unpleasant to listen to. I'll be buying another version of this book.
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.

Winnie the Pooh will never rate less than 5 stars in any universe that I inhabit, but Peter Dennis just had him all wrong. Christopher Robin can say what he will, but Sterling Holloway will always be Pooh in my universes.
Peter Dennis should not be narrating Winne-the-pooh. Every single time Piglet says a sentence, it is followed by this annoying pig snort. EVERY TIME, people.
Stop the annoying snorting every time Piglet speaks.
Disney already did this beautifully.
I love listening in the car. It's about the only thing that makes my morning commute tolerable.
Good book and narration. However, there are a lot of background nature sounds that are a bit confusing if you listen in the car, as I do. The biggest shock to me, though, was the utter lack of Tigger who seems to be a Disney creation.
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
I've always heard this was better understood and enjoyed by older children and adults so I purchased it for my 50-year-old self. I only warmed up to it about halfway through, though, probably because I was finally getting used to Piglet's annoying snort and also getting over my expectation that it would be classic children's lit in the tradition of Wind in the Willows. When I experienced the book as though eavesdropping in on an English father telling fantastical tales to his children, the fun really began. I could imagine the children squirming with delight at ever twist and turn of the story. Once I adjusted my expectations, I discovered it to be a charming book done by an excellent narrator.
