Publisher's Summary

"Alison Larkin is hugely entertaining...marvellously light-footed." (The Times)

At last, award-winning narrator Alison Larkin brings A A Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh and When We Were Very Young to a new American audience. “As a child growing up in the part of England where A A Milne lived, I felt as if I knew Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, Eyore, Rabbit Piglet, Owl, Kanga and little Roo,” says Alison Larkin. “They were friends of mine. Narrating this audiobook meant I could return to the Hundred Acre Wood, re-live our childhood adventures and bring these wonderful stories back to America with me. What a magical experience this has been.”

The beloved stories about a bear of very little brain and his friends are as enchanting today as when they were first written. Winnie-the-Pooh is followed by A A Milne’s When We Were Very Young. Other children's classics narrated by Larkin to high critical acclaim include Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, Peter Pan, and The Secret Garden. Exclusive to Audible, this edition includes A A Milne's preface to When We Were Very Young.

Critic Reviews

"A.A. Milne's stories and poems have enchanted the young, and not so young, for nearly a century. In this delightful audiobook narrator Alison Larkin performs two of his most beloved children's classics. A tone of lighthearted charm and an adventurous spirit add sparkle to Larkin's perfectly paced narration of Winnie-the-Pooh. From her endearingly melancholy Eeyore to a Pooh bear who is always thoughtful, or singing, or both--Larkin captures each character's unique personality in her own engaging style. Leaving behind the Hundred Acre Wood, Larkin presents the poetry of When We Were Very Young in an animated, often childlike tone of voice well suited to the youngest listeners. Whether sparking imaginations or memories, the entire production is thoroughly enjoyable." (AudioFile)

Perfect narration of a delightful story

Alison Larkin's narration of Winnie the Pooh and When We Were Very Young is so authentic you really feel as if you are there with A A. Milne's wonderful characters in the Hundred Acre Wood. I have long been a fan of Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eyore, Rabbit, Kanga and Roo. This is how they should sound. What a wonderful listening experience. And the poems that follow are equally delightful. The King's Breakfast has always been a favorite of mine - that poor King, who says he only wants 'a bit of butter for my bread'. Beautifully read. A delightful production. Bravo!
