In these 5 stories, taken from the book The House at Pooh Corner, Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore, Tigger comes to the Forest and has breakfast, Piglet nearly meets the Heffalump again, Pooh invents a new game and Owl moves house. As usual they are accompanied by Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl - to say nothing of Pooh's very clever young human friend, Christopher Robin.
Now with musical introduction, Alan Bennett's delightful readings bring each and every character in the Forest to life.

These stories are of course timeless classics of the highest quality. My issue is with the narrator.
He does a fine job with Rabbit's and Owl's voices and one could possibly appreciate his Pooh and Piglet voices. But what he does with Eeyore and especially Tigger is inexcusable! Turns them into sophisticated stuck-up nose-in-the-air Stanford types. Not the lovable characters we imagine when reading the stories ourselves.
Oh how I wish Sebastian Cabot could have made this.
