What the Critics Say

"This latest addition to the Pooh Classics, the 10 unabridged stories from The House at Pooh Corner, is a must....[Peter Dennis's] intelligent and whimsical readings, meant for adults and children alike, are captivating." (The Los Angeles Times)
"Actor Peter Dennis turns in a meltingly lovely narration. His voice is calm and friendly, yet he manages distinctive voices for each of the characters....This is an imaginative production to boot, with original music and sound effects. In many productions, sound effects are too loud and compete with the narration, but this is the first one to have gotten the balance just right." (Philadelphia Enquirer)

    "I Love these stories but..."

    The narrator is good (though of course I'm biased to how my father read the stories to me when I was little and no other narrator can be quite as good) but unfortunately the makers of the audio book went a little overboard and put background noises in. These are slightly distracting but wouldn't be too bad if there wasn't an oinking sound every time Piglet says anything, which makes him sound like he has an awful gas problem emanating from various orifices. "Ppptt" or "urp" every five minutes can be quite annoying. With most characters the reader tends to end his sentences with a form of verbal punctuation (ex: "pptt" or "haha!"). Other than that the reading is quite charming.

    "Charming, fun and gentle"

    My five and seven year-old sons love this audio book. I've tried to read the Pooh stories aloud (there is a knack, which I don't possess) so we all appreciate the excellent narration of these stories. Also, this is a great bed-time selection, as the pace and action are gentle.
    These are not too babyish for young grade school listeners -- the language is much more sophisticated than in the Disney videos, although the characterizations are similar.

    "No more bedtime tantrums!"

    My four-year-old had a hard time calming down before bed; this worked miracles. Each story is ~20 minutes long, a perfect length to pay attention at four, and enough time to settle down. He listens to it in bed, with the lights off and is enthralled. He loves the piglet snort the narrator uses; makes him giggle every time.
    Highly recommend!!

    "Didn't like this one"

    I started off wondering if the narrator had recorded it by the beach, with the seagulls in the background. Also did NOT like the snorting in every line by Piglet. It's a lovely story in it's own right, and perhaps this narration would appeal to young children, but I found it irritating to listen to.

    "Adorable rendition of a classic"

    Peter Dennis did a wonderful job of narrating A. A. Milne's famous work, and I thouroughly enjoyed it. He is masterful with the different voices.

    The only issue that I had with it is that (forgive me for bringing this up), but Piglet sounds like he's passing gas every time he speaks. I could have done without that particular sound effect, but I won't fault him for it because I think he was just trying to make Piglet sound like a pig, and little boys will love it.

    "Dear A. A. Milne and Peter Dennis, Thank you."

    I am a librarian and have spent hundreds of hours reading stories aloud and hearing others -- quite talented others -- reading stories. I love a great storyteller. Peter Dennis truly understands and communicates the the full scope and spirit of the stories and characters residing in the Hundred Acre Wood. My daughters love these audiobooks, thus i've heard them many dozens of times. I never tire of hearing them.

    Thank you A. A. Milne, for being a keen observer and not condescending to children. Thank you Peter Dennis for really 'getting it.' And for being such a delightfully generous storyteller. Your storytelling and Milne's story are a real part of our life. I am truly grateful and hope you find other stories you want to narrate.

    "A Pleasure for the Whole Family"
    What did you love best about The House at Pooh Corner?

    I think most people are familiar with Pooh, but if you have only experienced the Disney version the books will be a special treat. The characters are not quite so sugary and much more interesting. Each chapter is a new story so it is easy to listen to one chapter at a time. The narration is perfect- each character's voice is unique. I also enjoy the music between chapters.

    "Horrible narration for Piglet character"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Snorting or what ever you call that sound the narrator does every time Piglet speaks. I actually only managed to listen to ten minutes and had to stop listening. Shame since I love the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see this reread by another narrator or even the same one if he would eliminate those annoying sounds. The background noises are unnecessary as well. I cannot comment on any other character voices aside from Pooh since I did not listen to very much.

    "Another great Pooh book"
    If you could sum up The House at Pooh Corner in three words, what would they be?

    We love these books. Instead of watching movies over and over we listen to the pooh books. She started speaking at one and can tell stories, nursery rhymes, and have a conversation all because of the pooh books.

    "The House at Pooh Corner"

    My 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter have enjoyed this book nearly as much as my wife and I. The reading does this timeless classic justice, although Piglet's voice required a little getting used to. Overall, well worth the listen.

    Story
    "Great trip down memory lane!"
    What made the experience of listening to The House at Pooh Corner the most enjoyable?

    I had no idea what to expect from this audio book. I was a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh when I was young (and still do enjoy the films occasionally I will admit) but I could remember nothing about the original work. This made it a joy to listen to, especially as the characters are so different from how they are portrayed by Disney.


    What does Peter Dennis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His voices were brilliant. There were a few occasions were it seemed like he had forgotten just who he was supposed to be and did the wrong voice but I didn't mind too much and thankfully it did come out in the narrative just who was meant to be speaking.
    I especially loved his voices for Christopher Robin and Rabbit.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of the TV/Cartoons of Winnie the Pooh I would highly suggest you give the original work a chance. I was pleasantly surprised by the difference.

    On a side note, the music played to split up the various stories was lovely.
