Publisher's Summary

Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.

Blackstone Audiobooks presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the 10 stories of Winnie-the-Pooh performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these immortal stories authorized by A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin, who wrote, "Peter Dennis has made himself Pooh's Ambassador Extraordinare and no bear has ever had a more devoted friend. So if you want to meet the real Pooh, the bear I knew, the bear my father wrote about, listen to Peter."

This collection includes the chapters:
In Which We Are Introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees, and the Stories Begin
In Which Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets Into a Tight Place
In Which Pooh and Piglet Go Hunting and Nearly Catch a Woozle
In Which Eeyore Loses a Tail and Pooh Finds One
In Which Piglet Meets a Heffalump
In Which Eeyore Has a Birthday and Gets Two Presents
In Which Kanga and Baby Roo Come to the Forest, and Piglet Has a Bath
In Which Christopher Robin Leads an Expotition to the North Pole
In Which Piglet is Entirely Surrounded by Water
In Which Christopher Robin Gives a Pooh Party, and We Say Goodbye

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)

    "I miss Sterling Holloway!!"

    Winnie the Pooh will never rate less than 5 stars in any universe that I inhabit, but Peter Dennis just had him all wrong. Christopher Robin can say what he will, but Sterling Holloway will always be Pooh in my universes.

    "No Tigger"

    Good book and narration. However, there are a lot of background nature sounds that are a bit confusing if you listen in the car, as I do. The biggest shock to me, though, was the utter lack of Tigger who seems to be a Disney creation.

    "Classic Pooh"

    This was a lovely tale read by a very talented narrator. I was not raised on Winnie the Pooh. Therefore, this was a treat to finally hear the stories.

    "Annoying British accent"

    Some narrators have a delightful voice to listen to when they have in British or Australian accent and others are just very very annoying. The snorting by piglet was super super annoying

    "Gentle Wisdom for Adults as Well as Children"
    Any additional comments?

    I've always heard this was better understood and enjoyed by older children and adults so I purchased it for my 50-year-old self. I only warmed up to it about halfway through, though, probably because I was finally getting used to Piglet's annoying snort and also getting over my expectation that it would be classic children's lit in the tradition of Wind in the Willows. When I experienced the book as though eavesdropping in on an English father telling fantastical tales to his children, the fun really began. I could imagine the children squirming with delight at ever twist and turn of the story. Once I adjusted my expectations, I discovered it to be a charming book done by an excellent narrator.

    "Charming Story"
    Where does Winnie-the-Pooh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is a charming story, but it would have been better if there was not snorting when piglet was read. The snorting really was annoying and distracted from the story. Peter Dennis has a nice voice, but an annoying snort.


    What other book might you compare Winnie-the-Pooh to and why?

    Peter Rabbit. A charming children's story with animals as characters.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No snorting with piglet.


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

    Not really. Though I enjoyed parts of the book, I could not get past the snorting when piglet talked.


    Any additional comments?

    I am wondering if children would enjoy the snorting. It is possible. I guess I am too old to favor it.

    "That Piglet voice..."

    I LOVE this book. Everything, that is, except for the Peter Dennis' Piglet voice. He adds a little snorty-hiccup after every line - an effect which, in practice, wages war on the ears and banishes all thoughts of sleep from an otherwise perfect-for-bedtime book.

    It's a super shame, as the whimsy of the writing shines through with Peter's performance.
    If you can stomach piglet, I envy you.

    "Just as it should be!"

    Naturally, as an American I have Sterling Holloway in my head as Winnie the Pooh and all the other voices as well. However, this rendition is just about perfect. I say just about, because the odd hiccups that Piglet is subject to (I think they are supposed to be grunts) are really quite annoying and distracting. But not enough to remove a star for performance. My son and I enjoyed this very much on a long drive across country....

    "Son loves it"

    We read Winnie the Pooh with our three year old, and he loves listening to this version of the stories over and over again, and often goes to sleep listening to it. The narration is lovely, not too fast, and the characters voices are easy to tell apart. I find Piglet's voice a bit irritating, but he loves it! Each chapter is separated by some gentle music and easy to navigate too. We're just bought The House at Pooh Corner as well!

    The Pooh stories are great stories for both children and adults.
    The narrator is perfect for the Pooh stories. It cannot possibly be bettered.

    Peter Dennis has done an outstanding job on the narration of these classics. He makes the characters really live, and brings out every ounce of the humour in the stories. Every time I listen to them, I enjoy them even more!

    "Grrrrrrr! when will it end?"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Ex public schoolboys tired of translating Latin script for the fun of it.


    What was most disappointing about A. A. Milne’s story?

    The narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Dennis’s performances?

    No, not ever even if I went deaf and this was offered as a cure.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and frustration


    Any additional comments?

    10 minutes into a 6 hour journey I was wishing I had not chosen to listen to Winnie the Pooh read by Peter Dennis, I had to pull over and stop 3 times to stop the pompus prattle from monopolising Audible on an ipad, it was impossible to stop! I now understand road rage. There is bound to be someone who enjoys this if it is you get help!

    This is seriously awful and the first Audible Audiobook I haven't listened to all the way through.
