Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach.

My little son loves this story. I like the readers voice, being that my boy listens to this whilst falling asleep.

A.A. Milne's 'Winnie-the-Pooh' stories need no introduction. They have been loved by generations of children ever since Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo, and Eeyore made their first appearance.

What made the experience of listening to The House at Pooh Corner the most enjoyable?

I've always loved Bernard Cribbins reading this book. He adds personality and humour to the characters which others don't quite manage. My favourite line is where piglet was getting snow down his neck, his feet were cold and he was getting tired of it. I read this to my Mum during her last days. It will always bring me fond memories and sad ones.

What other book might you compare The House at Pooh Corner to, and why?

Possibly Alice in Wonderland as it is also such a classic

Have you listened to any of Bernard Cribbins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have other audible recordings and Bernard Cribbins is one of my favourite narrators all around.

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

Humanitarian and innocent, things we have sadly lost.

Any additional comments?

I love this book and the rendition of it.
