This Audiobook is faulty.

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.

Great recording but be careful

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...

What a Cast!

It was lovely! Stephen Fry, Judi Dench and cast were wonderful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wonderful presentation of this classic.

Dench and Fry read this in a style that keeps the whimsy of the book without crossing over into the twee. The voices are superbly cast - I particularly liked Kanga and Piglet. The slight Aussie accent for Kanga worked and Jane Horrocks' Piglet is how I hear it in my head when I read the book. Eeyore also is good. I particularly liked that this is the full unabridged and unedited text of the original book.

I forgot how wonderful the Pooh stories are!

Would you listen to Winnie the Pooh: The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatised) again? Why?

Yes. It brought me back to how I felt when I read these books as a child, but the story actually has other layers when you read or listen to it as an adult.

What other book might you compare Winnie the Pooh: The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatised) to and why?

This kind of reminded me of the Toy Story movies. The whole "toys have a life of their own" thing.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The narrators/performers were very clear and easy to understand. They spoke in just the right tones, and it was easy to tell the various characters apart. The stories were read as if they were reading aloud to a child, but not talking down to the child.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Listening to Eeyore made me giggle. I didn't realize how sardonic he was when I read these the first few times as a kid. But the actor did a great job bringing the character to life and still making him likeable.

Any additional comments?

Listening to this book was an amazing experience. It made me very happy, and yet a little wistful.

Great for kids and adults.

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.

Charming and beautifully realized.

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

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.

What other book might you compare Winnie the Pooh: The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatised) to and why?

The first in the series, 'Winnie the Pooh', though it's a bit obvious to mention it.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

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.

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

Yes, but each chapter is great on its own, as well.

Doesn't disappoint

As a long term lover of Winnie the Pooh I downloaded this book to remind myself of the exact text A.A.Milne wrote. I was slightly nervous about revisiting a childhood memory in the form of an audio book, as the people reading a story can ruin the voices I gave characters growing up, but these stars delivered well. My only complaint is that Stephen Fry didn't sing Pooh's hums, only speak them in rhythm. Glad I got both Winnie the Pooh and House at Pooh Corner.

Excellent performance. ..but no mp3

Would you consider the audio edition of Winnie the Pooh: The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

Huh? How can the audio book be better than reading to your child and looking at the wonderful illustrations?

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

The narrator, shared across readers and easily passed back and forth.

Any additional comments?

Yes...

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.

PERFECT

What did you like most about Winnie the Pooh: The House at Pooh Corner (Dramatised)?

The joyful piano accompaniments.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

Eeyore

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

Yes and no - we've listened to it many times over. We have it as a car book for our son, but we all enjoy it.

Any additional comments?

You will not regret listening to this. It is lovingly read and accompanied. The songs and poems are adorable, and the word play is a delight.

A great book for older and younger kids!

My kids (ages 6 and 3) love listening to this book while going to bed. It is suitable for older and younger kids alike as there is nothing too scary in the story but it still holds the interest of the older child.
