What the Critics Say

"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)
"Congratulations on your outstanding contribution to children and their families. The sort of growth your work inspires speaks for emotional, ethical, and character development." (Parents' Choice)

    "Winnie the Pooh"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Winnie's Awful Voice"
    What did you like best about Winnie-the-Pooh? What did you like least?

    I don't know what Peter Dennis thinks Winnie the Pooh should sound like but he certainly shouldn't sound like a baritone drunk.


    Was Winnie-the-Pooh worth the listening time?

    Not for me because I couldn't stomach the sound of Winnie's voice. It shot the whole beauty of the story down.

    "Grunting piglet ruins reading"
    What disappointed you about Winnie-the-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.

    "Classic!"
    What did you love best about Winnie-the-Pooh?

    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!


    What about Peter Dennis’s performance did you like?

    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!
