    "A Great Dramatization with a Perfect Piglet"

    This is an excellent dramatization of A. A. Milne's delightful classic book about Pooh, the bear of little brain, and his quirky friends. The different voice actors are perfect, with standouts being Judi Dench as one of the two narrators, Jane Horrocks as the husky, high-voiced Piglet, and Geoffrey Palmer as the appealingly gloomy Eeyore. Stephen Fry does a sturdy Pooh, though at times I had the uncanny impression of Fry himself standing before me rather than Pooh bear. Two narrators, one male, one female, narrate the chapters, switching back and forth repeatedly and rapidly, and after about the first chapter, I found myself enjoying the switches, as though I were being read to by two ideally witty and warm parents or grand-parents at the same time. The piano music that begins or closes chapters and accompanies Pooh's "hums" is pleasant and appropriate. The sound effects help the listener to imagine the scenes without distracting him/her from the savory text. And the dramatization doesn't abridge much; from what I could tell (by comparing the first chapter in the book with the first one in the audiobook), the dramatizers include pretty much all of Milne's words and chapters except for occasional dialogue tags that are conveyed well enough by the different voice actors.

    It was very entertaining to listen to this book; I often found myself smiling and chuckling at the foolish and charming exploits of Pooh and company and wishing the book would not end.

    By the way, I tried the samples of Peter Dennis reading the unabridged Pooh books and was completely turned off by the bizarre grunting-farting noise that punctuates all of Piglet's utterances. Jane Horrocks is much much MUCH more appealingly Piglet-y.

    "Loved it!"

    I loved this dramatised version of the book.I especially loved Piglet, who has such a very small voice to match such a very small animal! I also loved Kanga, with her australian accent.

    "Loving it all over again"

    These narrators take me back to the magic of AA Milne's beloved characters and stories.
    Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer are sublime, Stephen Fry and Jane Horrocks are perfect.
    At 5 years old or 50 (like me), there is much love and fun in these stories about the silly old bear.
    I adored being read to as a child and still do.
    Highly recommended!

    "Doesn't miss a beat"

    Such a fun listen. Can't recommend it enough. My 3-year-old has it on repeat. For me it took a bit to adjust to WtP's voice since I was so accustomed to Disney's version but the actor (as are all the actors) is excellent. This is slightly abridged but the much of roundabout dialogue is preserved.

    "Piglet's Voice Is Cuteness as an Art Form"
    Where does Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high; among the very best of the kid's books I've tried.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Piglet. The voice.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect mix of cuteness and dry humor. Eeyore and Pooh contrast with Piglet and Christopher Robin and keep the tone from slipping into sugar sweetness. The book is brilliant, and this performance is a highly intelligent interpretation.
