Publisher's Summary

Blackstone Audiobooks presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the 44 poems and verses from When We Were Very Young performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin.

The first of A.A. Milne's four world-famous books for children, When We Were Very Young introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time.

For sheer delightfulness, the children's rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves, with their charm, humor, and understanding, to say nothing of their irresistible rhythms.

All the material is unabridged and taken from When We Were Very Young ©1924 E.P. Dutton & Co Inc., renewed 1952 A. A. Milne. All material Copyright under the Berne Convention. Recorded by permission of The Trustees of the Pooh Properties; (P)2004 Bother! LA Production

What the Critics Say

"Peter's reading of A.A. Milne's verse and poetry is about you and me and that cognac-colored moment when a scent of memory sends us flying back through time to a place in youth where, for a perfect instant, nothing is wrong." (Los Angeles Times)

    "Great Memories"

    I read this book to my daughter from before she was born, when she was an infant and young child She still has the copy of this book as well as When We Were Six and used them when she had to do dramatic readings in her drama classes. They verses are fun and quirky and have wonderful lessons.

    "Charming"

    This is such a wonderful collection of poems. My children (7 and 3) listen to it on long car rides, and it always brings a smile. The narration is excellent.
