A Charming, Savory, Perfect Pooh Dramatization

This is a charming, delightful, savory, perfect dramatization of about half of The House at Pooh Corner, with the following chapters from the original book:

1. In which Rabbit Has a Busy Day
2. In which Pooh Invents a New Game
3. In Which It Is Shown that Tiggers Don't Climb Trees
4. In Which a Search is Organdised
5. In Which Piglet Does a Very Grand Thing

The British actors are excellent at reading their parts, especially the narrators (two, a male and a female one, take turns) and Piglet and Eeyore. They infuse such wit and personality and understanding into their readings that the stories really come to life, making me smile and chuckle. The only words I could detect being abridged in the dramatization are certain dialogue tags like "Pooh said???"

If only the companion book, Tigger Comes to the Forest, had the chapters that are advertised for it, together it would make with Pooh Invents a New Game a complete House at Pooh Corner??? But check my review of Tigger Comes to the Forest for details about what's wrong with it.

Performance deserves TEN stars!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! The stellar cast on this recording does a truly amazing job. I couldn't believe what a difference it made (vs. a book read by just one person). The sound effects are wonderful as well; my children are always entirely absorbed in listening when this is on.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Oh, Judi Dench. Who knew you could do Winnie the Pooh as well as English royalty?

Any additional comments?

My kids are aged 4 and 5 -- they love this!

Child's Review

The narrator was good. I liked it. It was very exciting. I liked the sound effects. The overall story was good but I didn't understand all of it. I am nine years old.

Instant favourite

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 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.
