The verses here, along with the verses in When We Were Very Young and the stories in Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, have endeared themselves to so many readers that it is painful to try to imagine what the world would be like without them.
The perfect audiobook for that all-important birthday, Now We Are Six is much more than a worthy successor to When We Were Young; it is a modern classic in its own right.

"Peter Dennis brings to these remarkable readings a quality that goes beyond professionalism into an area we can't even begin to define." (Los Angeles Times)
The first two books are wonderful. This one and the next are A.A.Milne poetry. The are terrific in their own way.
Back in the '70s, when I was a little boy, I had an LP album by the same title. I remembered that I really liked listening to it. I don't remember what had ever become of it over the years. But I do remember there being songs on it that I could learn to sing, like "Cottleston Pie". I had also loved this song because of it being sung by 'Ralph the Dog' on "The Muppet Show". And this all brought me to love Walt Disney's 'Winnie the Pooh' even more today.
"Funny for both adults & children alike!"
My little boy listened to this on a long haul flight rather than watching a movie. He was engaged the whole time but not over stimulated when it came to sleeping a little later. THe stories are gentle & innocent but funny & very sweet. It's a perfect choice for bedtime as there is nothing in there that will frighten.
If your children like Paddington Bear, Mary Poppins or the like this is perfect.
It is narrated brilliantly & are the voices of the characters that I had in my head as a child.
