"This program exemplifies the potential quality audio has for complementing text. Soothing music introduces and links the stories and verses. Subtle sounds of nature immerse the listener in Pooh's world and provide a backdrop for Peter Dennis' enchanting performance. Dennis' ability to switch characters and moods allows him to accurately portray the range of characters in the stories. These talents shine prominently....Dennis expresses the multitude of emotions in a childlike tone which is key to the success of the program. All ages will enjoy this marvelous performance of Milne's words." (AudioFile)

Listening to this is like revisiting an old friend. The narration was good and the story is very imaginative.
I loved the relaxing pace in which the stories are told. I also love that these are the stories I grew up with.
I love the sweetness of the stories and Peter does such a great job with the voices.
Pooh, of course.
Neither. Just a relaxing sigh as I listened to stories from my childhood.
As a born in the wool Eeyore, I have spent many hours dropping pooh sticks, oh bother, who cares. it is always the star people want to hear about. The book took me back to lazy summer days in a Kansas wheat field hiding to read.......
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.
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.
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!
