This would be one of my favorite audiobooks so far (2nd in line - The Help is our nr. 1) . We have small kids and listen to this audio book over and over again in the car. Of course the Winnie the Pooh story is great and timeless. But the performances of these actors are top-notch. It has me laughing all the time - even though I have heard this story at least 10 or 15 times in just a few weeks.
Piglet. The voice just makes me laugh. In fact, if you are having a bad day this would be a great way to cheer up. It is fab.
What do I not like is an easier question as I could simply say
Don't want to give away details - so best to say that this book evokes a multitude of emotions. You have to be an ice cube to not melt during this performance.
This story is ageless - interesting and entertaining from 1 - 100. We find it a really good way to calm our youngest ones down when they get fuzzy. Even toddlers, who might not quite understand the whole story - will listen as there are many voices and sound effects to keep them engaged quietly and this can give a welcome break to a busy day of running errands taking the kids in and out of the car.
Yes, definitely. The story was very funny and had great voices.
My kids loved when Piglet runs away from the pit because he thinks Pooh is a Heffalump!
"Straight Fives All The Way!"
This is so entertaining and appealing! I loved it and when I can't sleep, this goes on again & again! You might be older than 10, 20, even older! I am! Try it and see.
My 3-and-a-half year-old daughter is a fan of the various Winnie the Pooh film and TV properties. So when I was looking for some new, and slightly more grown up, audio books to add to her her library of 'quiet time' listening these seemed like a good bet.
We weren't disappointed. She loves them and with such classic stories and a truly top notch voice cast why wouldn't she?
I have purchased three of the collections so far and they have been the only requests since.
A lovely production and well worth a purchase.
"Winnie the Pooh: Piglet Meets a Heffalump."
This kept my Grandchildren amused on a very long car journey and just loved this dramatised version.
