"One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet's house to see what Piglet was doing." Thus begins
The House At Pooh Corner, A.A. Milne's wonderful companion volume to
Winnie-the-Pooh. You will rediscover Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore, and all their friends, and be introduced to the irrepressible and very bouncy Tigger.

Milne's son, Christopher Robin, who wrote, "Peter Dennis has made himself Pooh's Ambassador Extraordinary and no bear has ever had a more devoted friend. So if you want to meet the real Pooh, the bear I knew, the bear my father wrote about, listen to Peter."
As you begin to listen to this beloved book, you'll enter that enchanted place on the top of the Forest where "a little boy and his Bear will always be playing".
The stories included in this volume are: In Which A House Is Built at Pooh Corner for Eeyore In Which Tigger Comes to the Forest and Has Breakfast In Which A Search Is Organized, and Piglet Nearly Meets the Heffalump Again In Which It Is Shown that Tiggers Don't Climb Trees In Which Rabbit Has a Busy Day, and We Learn What Christopher Robin Does in the Mornings In Which Pooh Invents a New Game and Eeyore Joins In In Which Tigger Is Unbounced In Which Piglet Does a Very Grand Thing In Which Eeyore Finds the Wolery and Owl Moves Into It In Which Christopher Robin and Pooh Come to an Enchanted Place, and We Leave Them There
"This latest addition to the Pooh Classics, the 10 unabridged stories from The House at Pooh Corner, is a must....[Peter Dennis's] intelligent and whimsical readings, meant for adults and children alike, are captivating." (The Los Angeles Times) "Actor Peter Dennis turns in a meltingly lovely narration. His voice is calm and friendly, yet he manages distinctive voices for each of the characters....This is an imaginative production to boot, with original music and sound effects. In many productions, sound effects are too loud and compete with the narration, but this is the first one to have gotten the balance just right." (Philadelphia Enquirer)

The House at Pooh Corner
Great trip down memory lane!
I had no idea what to expect from this audio book. I was a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh when I was young (and still do enjoy the films occasionally I will admit) but I could remember nothing about the original work. This made it a joy to listen to, especially as the characters are so different from how they are portrayed by Disney.
His voices were brilliant. There were a few occasions were it seemed like he had forgotten just who he was supposed to be and did the wrong voice but I didn't mind too much and thankfully it did come out in the narrative just who was meant to be speaking.
I especially loved his voices for Christopher Robin and Rabbit.
If you are a fan of the TV/Cartoons of Winnie the Pooh I would highly suggest you give the original work a chance. I was pleasantly surprised by the difference.
On a side note, the music played to split up the various stories was lovely.
