    "A delight"
    If you could sum up Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, lovely, joyful.


    What other book might you compare Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) to, and why?

    The other dramatised Pooh books


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

    Comic intonation and acting skill


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

    Not really but it is well able to sustain multiple listens.


    Any additional comments?

    A great cast of voice actors - not a voice out of place. The Australian accent is kind of ridiculous but that just makes it lovely. Kanga and Roo are polite Australian accents as imagined by people who've never heard an Australian talk, or if they have, decided to heavily redact the nasal braying we are so found of demonstrating for the world. 'Come on, Roo' should really be 'C'aarn, Roo' (for example).

    Story
    "A Great Dramatization with a Perfect Piglet"

    This is an excellent dramatization of A. A. Milne's delightful classic book about Pooh, the bear of little brain, and his quirky friends. The different voice actors are perfect, with standouts being Judi Dench as one of the two narrators, Jane Horrocks as the husky, high-voiced Piglet, and Geoffrey Palmer as the appealingly gloomy Eeyore. Stephen Fry does a sturdy Pooh, though at times I had the uncanny impression of Fry himself standing before me rather than Pooh bear. Two narrators, one male, one female, narrate the chapters, switching back and forth repeatedly and rapidly, and after about the first chapter, I found myself enjoying the switches, as though I were being read to by two ideally witty and warm parents or grand-parents at the same time. The piano music that begins or closes chapters and accompanies Pooh's "hums" is pleasant and appropriate. The sound effects help the listener to imagine the scenes without distracting him/her from the savory text. And the dramatization doesn't abridge much; from what I could tell (by comparing the first chapter in the book with the first one in the audiobook), the dramatizers include pretty much all of Milne's words and chapters except for occasional dialogue tags that are conveyed well enough by the different voice actors.

    It was very entertaining to listen to this book; I often found myself smiling and chuckling at the foolish and charming exploits of Pooh and company and wishing the book would not end.

    By the way, I tried the samples of Peter Dennis reading the unabridged Pooh books and was completely turned off by the bizarre grunting-farting noise that punctuates all of Piglet's utterances. Jane Horrocks is much much MUCH more appealingly Piglet-y.

    "Loving it all over again"

    These narrators take me back to the magic of AA Milne's beloved characters and stories.
    Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer are sublime, Stephen Fry and Jane Horrocks are perfect.
    At 5 years old or 50 (like me), there is much love and fun in these stories about the silly old bear.
    I adored being read to as a child and still do.
    Highly recommended!

    "Doesn't miss a beat"

    Such a fun listen. Can't recommend it enough. My 3-year-old has it on repeat. For me it took a bit to adjust to WtP's voice since I was so accustomed to Disney's version but the actor (as are all the actors) is excellent. This is slightly abridged but the much of roundabout dialogue is preserved.

    "Piglet's Voice Is Cuteness as an Art Form"
    Where does Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high; among the very best of the kid's books I've tried.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Piglet. The voice.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect mix of cuteness and dry humor. Eeyore and Pooh contrast with Piglet and Christopher Robin and keep the tone from slipping into sugar sweetness. The book is brilliant, and this performance is a highly intelligent interpretation.

    "This tops anything I've purchased!"
    If you could sum up Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

    You must purchase!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Definitely the narration and sound effects. It adds a dimension that you can't find in books read by only one person. Winnie the Pooh is a favorite of ours, and this version tops our list.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    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.

    "An amazing bedtime story"
    What made the experience of listening to Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

    The narrators gave a new perspective to the story, and the sounds and musical notes made it perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Eeyore. His depressive mood and negative thinking contrasts perfectly with some of the more cheerful characters in the book. And the way his friends keep trying to help him and cheer him up is simply adorable. For me his birthday is one of the best stories in the book.


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

    Judi Dench as a narrator was my favourite. She was able to tell the story in playfull and entertaining way.


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

    I bought this audiobook right after watching the new Winnie the Pooh movie and started to read at night night in my bed. I quickly found that this one was an amazing bedtime story that would put me to sleep in a very restful way. Not because the audiobook is boring and can't be read all the way trough (I've done it and its a very nice experience too) but because the voices, the sounds ans the story are so soothing.

    I loved this dramatised version of the book.I especially loved Piglet, who has such a very small voice to match such a very small animal! I also loved Kanga, with her australian accent.

    "Best Book We've Downloaded So Far"

    My daughters are 5 and almost 7. They LOVED this version of Winnie-The-Pooh. They listened to it once on our way to visit family for Thanksgiving, and twice on the way back. They were already big fans of Stephen Fry's narration of Paddington, but they liked this even better. The voices are perfect. My husband and I enjoyed it too; a lot of the wry humor is lost in the Disney version of Pooh.

    We loved listening to this audio book. We already love Pooh Bear, however this audio book brought Pooh and his friends to life in a superb way and has made us love him even more. One for all the family. My husband, who does not enjoy 'stories', was tickled listening along.
