An award winning production, with an all-star cast including Stephen Fry and Dame Judi Dench. Brings to life one of the best loved and recognised children's books of all time in a full dramatisation with specially composed music.

The story is well-read and dramatised, but the chapters repeat themselves, and are not in the right order so you can't follow the story. There is something very wrong and mixed up here, which spoiled the whole experiance for me and my children. Story 3 is the same as story 7, and at least 2 other stories are also repeated and out of order.
Wikipedia has the listed titles to the House at Pooh Corner. Just be aware that Pooh Invents a New Game and Tigger Comes to the Forest are exactly what's in the House at Pooh Corner. Hopefully Audible will come along and list the chapters so people don't do what I did...
There is so much humor that my daughter gets, yet there is so much humor that keeps my wife and I laughing everytime we listen to it. Excellent read (listen). Stephen Fry is hilarious, and Geffory Palmer nails Eeyor.
Such a lovely story and great for family audiobook time. My five year old loves listening and particularly likes Kanga and Roo.
I am photographer and mother of two. I am a lifelong bibliophile and lover of stories in general, and I discovered audiobooks because I no longer had time to read. It has been a beautiful friendship.
Absolutely, I don't even think that you need the excuse of having small children. A.A. Milne is whimsical enough on his own, but the cast brings these voices to life in ways I had never even been able to imagine, not a false note among them.
The first in the series, 'Winnie the Pooh', though it's a bit obvious to mention it.
They are varied enough that they are immediately distinguishable and so full of personality you expect them to walk out of your head, complete and large as life.
Yes, but each chapter is great on its own, as well.
"lovely for children"
Purchased this as love Winnie the Pooh and when I was expecting my first child wanted some audible stories to calm her down during sleep time now she is 11 days old and settles her nicely
"Welcome to Pooh Corner"
an excellent adaption for both kids and adults I loved it and I think the bairns did also
"Excellent performance. ..but no mp3"
Huh? How can the audio book be better than reading to your child and looking at the wonderful illustrations?
How can you not love a Bear of Little Brain? Especially when Stephen Fry and Judi Dench are there to help him through the stories.
The narrator, shared across readers and easily passed back and forth.
The Audible download software shows you can download it for mp3 players. However, it actually downloads an aac file which is not compatible with my car's system so I need to buy the CO.
