    "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.

    "Loved it!"

    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.

    "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!

    "Classic come to life"

    I love this rendition of the classic stories of Winnie the Pooh. Stephen Fry is a wonderful Pooh (I'd listen to him read anything), and who wouldn't like Judi Dench as a narrator? Only occasionally do I take issue with the shrillness of Piglet's voice, but I'm sure that has much to do with my introduction to Milne by Disney. Eeyore, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo and Owl are all wonderfully voiced.
    I listen to this before bed sometimes to relax my mind, and often whenever I need cheering up. It's short and sweet, and never disappoints. I enjoy hearing the stories over and over again with Christopher Robin, because as he says, hearing the story told again is better than just a remembering.

    "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.

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

    I'm pregnant with my first baby. I've learning to calm him down that talking helps. When I can't talk to him I'll connect my iPod to a set of headphones and put them around my belly. Wyatt really loves listening. At least I think he does because he calms down and then lets me know when the book finishes by kicking me hard!

    "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.
