A wonderful adaption of Winnie the Pooh, featuring an all-star cast including Stephen Fry and Dame Judi Dench. Story 1: In which we are introduced. Story 2: In which Pooh goes visiting and gets into a tight place. Story 3: In which Pooh and Piglet go hunting and nearly catch a Woozle. Story 4: In which Eeyore loses a tail and Pooh finds one. Story 5: In which Piglet is entirely surrounded by water. Story 6: In which Christopher Robin gives a Pooh Party, and we say good-bye.

We have both the dramatised and undramatised version of this book and this one is far our favourite. My small son (5 years) loves Winnie bumping down the stairs and has taken to saying "oh bother" whenever something does not go his way. He loves listening to it before bed at night and we spend some time chatting about the stories. Although I have read all these stories to him through the years this narration is really making AA Milne part of his childhood memory and, I hope, will be passed on to his children when the time comes.
"Three cheers for Pooh!"
My son and I both enjoy listening to this particular audiobook. Stephen Fry is spot on for the role of bear and Dame Judi Dench's voice so soothing as narrator. An absolute classic.
