    No child should be without these classic tales of Winnie-the-Pooh and his forest friends. In this charming performance by Alan Bennett, originally conceived for BBC broadcast and produced by the world's foremost creators of radio entertainment, Winnie-the-Pooh and his endearing friends come wondrously alive to enthrall and delight even the littlest of listeners.

    Gwynne says: "Perfect again!"
    "Enjoyed immensely by 8 yr old and 61 yr old."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    I think it was better in our case. We listened while working on projects and the various voices really capture your attention. I have tried reading the story to her before, but who can compete with this cast of voices!


    What other book might you compare The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatized) to and why?

    not sure.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    These narrators really added to the characters. We love Piglets squeaks and Eeyore's gloominess. Wonderful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and we did. And then we listened again.. On third time when we bought the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderfully done!

    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I found this interesting and alarming because it seemed like it could so easily happen.


    Have you listened to any of Claire Danes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never heard her read before. Excellent job. I will look to see what else she has narrated. She brought the language and story to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very sad.
