Overview

"Once upon a time, a very long time ago, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest… " The world of Pooh is a world of enchantment. It is a world forever fixed in the minds and hearts of countless children -- a world where Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and the others share unforgettable adventures with Christopher Robin.

"Winnie-the-Pooh is filled with delight: Pooh goes hunting with Piglet, celebrates Eeyore's birthday, and accompanies Christopher Robin and the others on an "Expotition" to the North Pole. Through it all, Pooh remains the whimsical philosopher and staunch friend, captivating children as he has for generations.

Great Narration!

Great reading of a great book for children. The narrator was appropriately expressive and makes these stories come alive.

Not the Disney voice

Jim Broadbent does a fair job telling the stories, using a variety of (mostly) distict voices, but for those who grew up on the Disney versions, the voices don't match the characteristics of the characters as expected. (Eeyore doesn't sound sad, Rabbit doesn't sound conceited, and Pooh sounds a bit like a dense troll with a bad cold.)

A wonderful book and the narrator was terrific. My 4 year old twins loved it, but they wondered why there was no Tiger.

The narration was terrible. Especially when he tried to imitate the voices of Pooh & friends. Not only could it not draw the attention of my 2 year old but I tried really hard to listen to it myself but it was actually annoying.

I liked it

I've heard better, but it was still an enjoyable listen and got me through the commute in a peaceful, childhood story - induced haze.

This had to be one of the worst narrations I have ever heard from a children's collection. If you are looking to break the record for the quickest return of an audiobook, then please check out this title. I am not trying to be funny here, this is just a really bad read on these classic stories.

Alan Alexander Milne was born in 1882 in Scotland. He soon moved to England, where his father used to work as schoolmaster. He was taught by H.G.Wells, among other teachers. After he had finished his schooling, he began his career as a writer in London and in 1918 he published his first book, When We Were Very Young. In 1920 his son, Christopher Robin, was born and Alan decided to write a story about Christopher Robin's nursery toys, entitled Winnie-the-Pooh.
