Publisher's Summary

Blackstone Audiobooks presents, from the unabridged collection A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics, the 35 poems and verses from Now We Are Six performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin.

The verses here, along with the verses in When We Were Very Young and the stories in Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, have endeared themselves to so many readers that it is painful to try to imagine what the world would be like without them.

The perfect audiobook for that all-important birthday, Now We Are Six is much more than a worthy successor to When We Were Young; it is a modern classic in its own right.

Critic Reviews

"Peter Dennis brings to these remarkable readings a quality that goes beyond professionalism into an area we can't even begin to define." (Los Angeles Times)

Fun poems for a young child

Just a fun collection of poems from the author who created the Winnie the Pooh and friends stories. Pooh makes an appearance a few times, but mostly the poems are just about interesting things that will make a young child smile.

fun, simple poems

A cute collection of poems. While there is no story, it's still a fun experience. It reminds me of Dr. Seuss!

Poetry

Instead of a story, this was more of a poetry reading. I was relaxing to listen to.

"Now We Are Six (Unabridged)"

Back in the '70s, when I was a little boy, I had an LP album by the same title. I remembered that I really liked listening to it. I don't remember what had ever become of it over the years. But I do remember there being songs on it that I could learn to sing, like "Cottleston Pie". I had also loved this song because of it being sung by 'Ralph the Dog' on "The Muppet Show". And this all brought me to love Walt Disney's 'Winnie the Pooh' even more today.

Another Set of Poems by Milne

Although this set is made up of some of A.A. Milne's more famous works, it came across to me as being more just an adult being silly rather than one really trying to understand a child. The great ones are really neat attempts , but the bad ones just make everything else seem so much so more flat. Now none of them are actually all that terrible, just not his best work. These may have been written when Alan was discovering that the Winnie the Pooh books were not making Christopher Robin's life as wonderful as he had hoped. Still this is worth a read or two or so.

Funny for both adults & children alike!

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

My little boy listened to this on a long haul flight rather than watching a movie. He was engaged the whole time but not over stimulated when it came to sleeping a little later. THe stories are gentle & innocent but funny & very sweet. It's a perfect choice for bedtime as there is nothing in there that will frighten.

What other book might you compare Now We Are Six to, and why?

If your children like Paddington Bear, Mary Poppins or the like this is perfect.

What about Peter Dennis’s performance did you like?

It is narrated brilliantly & are the voices of the characters that I had in my head as a child.

No way to select a poem

This is badly produced. There are no contents. The poems come one after the other with no way to select which you want to hear.
