Publisher's Summary

"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. Blackstone Audiobooks presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the 10 simple and timeless tales of The House At Pooh Corner performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these enthralling stories authorized by A. A. 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

The House at Pooh Corner

My 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter have enjoyed this book nearly as much as my wife and I. The reading does this timeless classic justice, although Piglet's voice required a little getting used to. Overall, well worth the listen.

Great trip down memory lane!

What made the experience of listening to The House at Pooh Corner the most enjoyable?

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.


What does Peter Dennis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

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.


Any additional comments?

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.
