Publisher's Summary

The Bear of Very Little Brain and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood have delighted generations of children since Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. This anniversary edition of Winnie-the-Pooh is the perfect way to celebrate the enduring popularity of A. A. Milne's classic work. Three cheers for Pooh!

Not a book for children, but all sentient beings.

Do yourself a favor and immediately buy this audio book. Oh - before that, stop reading or listening to that dreary self-help or business book, or some serious adult book. Now - cue up Stephen Fry and the rest of this brilliant cast that give life to A. A. Milne's masterpiece.

Like many, I grew up reading and listening to Winnie-the-Pooh as a child. I loved the stories then and was lucky enough to be exposed to them before the Disney processing - sigh. But the brilliant language and gentle humor shine through in these stories and in this audio book in particular.

This is very funny stuff - even more for adults than children I believe. Stephen stars as the bear and plays him just right - serious and obsessed with his obsessions - honey, adventures, and his friends - especially Christopher Robin, and himself - Pooh. The tone and writing of the stories strike me as more related to Douglas Adams and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, than anything else. And sure enough - there is a brief clip of Adams interviewed on BBC and he tells that he was deeply influenced by Winnie-the-Pooh in his writing. Shades of Monty Python are recognizable as well. For me, this is laugh out loud material.

None of us are ever too old to be a kid again and these stories will help remind you of that. And keep you tethered to your child-like nature. Absolute perfection.

Lovely classic for the whole family

Would you listen to The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh again? Why?

Yes, the story is a classic and it was narrated very well. My kids loved it and even though my husband was dreading it ahead of time, he ended up not only liking it, but laughing out loud. The kids have never been so quiet on a road trip!

A Wonderful Collection of Stories

I, 50 year-old grandma, was taken back to the joys of sitting with my children. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. It's 10 books, I believe, and you can stop at book 1, or 2 etc... Great for in the car! This was a good pick.
Enjoy!

timeless classic...

wonderful stories, amazing actors. the narration for this audio book is read and performed perfectly by famous British actors, who play their roles magnificently..! these are beautiful stories, that seem to get more meaningful and funny every time I listen to them. I got this for the kids to listen to, however I will happily listen myself over and over..

5 stars without question.

Perfect. Great.

Really, really, really great. Not sure it's great for kids, honestly. I tried playing it for/with kids several times and they didn't really connect. But, I have now finally "read" all the Winnie the Pooh books. There's more to them than just kids stuff, honestly....

Always good stories

Would you listen to The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh again? Why?

I love Winnie the Pooh. My only complaint was the voice of Piglet. It was awful. Other than that I enjoyed it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Winnie the Pooh

What aspect of Stephen Fry’s performance would you have changed?

Nothing

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen at night before bed so I rarely listen to anything in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Change Piglets voice
