  • The Complete Just So Stories

    "Where are the verses?"

    Overall

    The book although beautifull and wonderfully read IS abridged! I was very disapointed not finding my favorite verses in the end of each story. In truth, the verses were for me the main reason for buying the UNABRIDGED book so I am entitled to feel not only disapointed but simply cheated. Besides, buying the audiobook consisted of certain number of stories, you expect you can choose which one you would want to listen at a time. On this record it is imposible because they are not divided into the tracks.

    Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.
