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!
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.

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.
Artist/crafter and writer
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!
