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!

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.

Wrong voice for pooh

Normally love Stephen Fry, but he is no Winnie the Pooh! Piglet was also questionable, and my son felt the squeeiliness was a bit over the top.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
