When I was younger, we watched the Winnie the Pooh cartoons and I didn't even realize that they were based on books. If you haven't read the books, you need to! They are good classics--I have even read them (a few pages or one chapter at a time) to very young babies/toddlers at naptime. There is humor in the characters' conversation that makes these books amusing for adults as well as children.
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.
I don't know what Peter Dennis thinks Winnie the Pooh should sound like but he certainly shouldn't sound like a baritone drunk.
Not for me because I couldn't stomach the sound of Winnie's voice. It shot the whole beauty of the story down.
I really love Winnie the pooh so very much. Never get sick of listening to his book.
Not quite sure. Although I do love Wind in the Willows with toad, ratty and al the others.,
Also enjoy Peter Rabbit and all his adventures.
Though his reading of Winner the Pooh was absolute outstanding.
It made me laugh and laugh and laugh. It is such a funny book to read.
Wonderful, Marvellous. An all time favourite book.
Adult appreciation of one of the world's best books for children
Every scene in this book is much loved. No one outclasses another
Should be read by every Playstation player to make them human again.
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.
I love the story. Pooh bear is iconic in childhood. My first three listened to this nearly every night. My 4th I just realized hasn't heard it yet. So I've downloaded this from our library and introduced it to my now 5 year old youngest child. He loves it! What's not to love! A curious bear that emulates every little child's curiosity!
I can not think of anyone else speaking for the voice of Pooh! Peter will forever be the voice of Winnie the Pooh for me!
This is such a classic story book. We own the actual book and movie, but still had to purchase the audio version. Absolutely loved it!
We have been listening to this book since Isabella was six months old and she still loves "Winnie Pooh."
According to the audiobook's introduction, Christopher Robin has said that Peter Dennis' reading is the best at bringing Pooh Bear to life. I do not remember the exact quote, but after listening to it it is easy to believe.
This is not merely a reading but an amazing performance. All of the different characters are performed with different voices and the noises of a country house in the background contribute to the effect that you are Christopher Robin listening to a story in your house near the Hundred Acre Wood.
