Publisher's Summary

The Bear of Very Little Brain and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood have delighted generations of children since Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. This anniversary edition of Winnie-the-Pooh is the perfect way to celebrate the enduring popularity of A. A. Milne's classic work. Three cheers for Pooh!

Not a book for children, but all sentient beings.

Do yourself a favor and immediately buy this audio book. Oh - before that, stop reading or listening to that dreary self-help or business book, or some serious adult book. Now - cue up Stephen Fry and the rest of this brilliant cast that give life to A. A. Milne's masterpiece.

Like many, I grew up reading and listening to Winnie-the-Pooh as a child. I loved the stories then and was lucky enough to be exposed to them before the Disney processing - sigh. But the brilliant language and gentle humor shine through in these stories and in this audio book in particular.

This is very funny stuff - even more for adults than children I believe. Stephen stars as the bear and plays him just right - serious and obsessed with his obsessions - honey, adventures, and his friends - especially Christopher Robin, and himself - Pooh. The tone and writing of the stories strike me as more related to Douglas Adams and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, than anything else. And sure enough - there is a brief clip of Adams interviewed on BBC and he tells that he was deeply influenced by Winnie-the-Pooh in his writing. Shades of Monty Python are recognizable as well. For me, this is laugh out loud material.

None of us are ever too old to be a kid again and these stories will help remind you of that. And keep you tethered to your child-like nature. Absolute perfection.

Not unabridged! A lot of words left out

I got this audiobook to listen to the Winnie-the-Pooh books, as well as to read along with the audio. The narration is great. However, this is not unabridged and some of the words are changed (e.g. “Winnie-the-Pooh looked round to see that nobody was listening, put his paw to his mouth, and said in a deep whisper: ‘Honey!’ Is shortened to the narrator just saying, “Honey!”). Very disappointed. Would have given it five stars had it included all of Milne’s original words.

Lovely classic for the whole family

Would you listen to The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh again? Why?

Yes, the story is a classic and it was narrated very well. My kids loved it and even though my husband was dreading it ahead of time, he ended up not only liking it, but laughing out loud. The kids have never been so quiet on a road trip!

Perfect. Great.

Really, really, really great. Not sure it's great for kids, honestly. I tried playing it for/with kids several times and they didn't really connect. But, I have now finally "read" all the Winnie the Pooh books. There's more to them than just kids stuff, honestly....

Family favorite

All of us love the performance of this story. My kids ask for it all the time! Stephen Fry and Judi Dench do not disappoint.

A Wonderful Collection of Stories

I, 50 year-old grandma, was taken back to the joys of sitting with my children. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. It's 10 books, I believe, and you can stop at book 1, or 2 etc... Great for in the car! This was a good pick.
Enjoy!

Classic Bedtime Stories

The collection of stories is delightfully told through the eyes of a child with a wonderful imagination. If you grew up watching the Disney version, don't expect Pooh and his friends to sound anything like that. The stories are as timeless as ever... simple and sweet as they go on their great adventures or when they try to figure a way out of their little entanglements.

Multiple narrators - hard to follow

I wish I had listened to the reviewer who said it was hard to follow the multiple character voices because for me (and my kids) it was nearly impossible. We only made it about 10 min in on our road trip because there were so many voices I couldn't tell if they were actually reading the book word for word, or just acting out the characters' lines. For a family read-aloud I think it is much more engaging just to hear one person read the story. Perhaps I had too high of expectations, but, sadly we just couldn't follow....and I was really looking forward to this classic!!
