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...
As with the first collection of stories, I love this rendition of Pooh Corner. Stephen Fry reprises his role as the lovable Pooh (I'd still listen to him read anything), as well as Judi Dench as a narrator and Kanga. I've gotten used to Piglet's voice, just in time to be acosted by Tigger. The energetic bouncing character is very loud, and his unique sound took me quite by surprise - again I'm sure that has much to do with my introduction to Milne by Disney. All the gang wonderfully voiced in these continued adventures.
I listen to this before bed sometimes to relax my mind, and often whenever I need cheering up. It's short and sweet, and never disappoints. I enjoy hearing the stories over and over again with Christopher Robin, because as he says, hearing the story told again is better than just a remembering.
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.
"Welcome to Pooh Corner"
an excellent adaption for both kids and adults I loved it and I think the bairns did also
