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).

Extremely irritating voices!

Super irritating voices. A touch complicated to follow. It’s the first audio book the kids have ever asked for me to just turn off.

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!

Charming and interesting for all ages!

My 7-y-o has this practically memorized. And it is one of my favorites of all time. Adults down to the youngest child all find something to relate to and chuckle at in this collection. Don’t be fooled into thinking it is like the Disney twaddle. Disney pretty much took out all the charm of the writing style. 😜

Wonderful Overall just one small issue.

Very good overall the only issue I had was wish the person doing piglets voice. It was annoying & difficult to understand at times. However all others were fantastic & deserve 5 stars for their performances.

Lovely

Listened to this with my children ages 4 & 8, and we all enjoyed it. My husband didn't care for Piglet's voice. I found the characters within the book to be somewhat more complex than the ones I grew up with and was pleased with the depth and humor I found in revisiting these stories as an adult.

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.

Classic!

Winnie the pooh is such a classic that it was great to hear the real story! I loved piglet the most as the narrator for piglet really captured the scaredness piglet usually feels. The only thing I would improve in is that Pooh's voice isn't so deep.
But apart from that.... I loved it!

Great but... but great

Great voices and very pro audio and all the obvious good things.. I just thought Stephen fry just sounds too intelligent to be pooh bear. Eeeor & Pooh lacked the adorable cute funny factor than they have on the book and even the new Disney film. But, still great.

Fabulous book. Great for all ages

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

Oh my! I adored this book. The narrators were amazing, each of them showing themselves in their best light. WOW. It left me a little emotional!

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

I can't think of one. Just buy it!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Eeyore's birthday is lovely. Christopher Robin made me want to weep.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Disney isn't everything!

Any additional comments?

Buy this book and listen in the car with your children. Money worth spending.

Superb

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.

Perfection!

Who doesn't love Pooh? And this has to be the dream cast of voice actors to bring the stories above. Everything about this is just wonderful.
