About the Author
Alan Alexander Milne (1882-1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in lighthearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four he became assistant editor of Punch. After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children's literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It's Too Late Now (1939).

However, it grew on me, and it also occurred to me that this is probably much closer to Milne's vision than The Tao of Pooh or the disney cute gloomy Eeyore.
My 5 year old who hasn't seen the Disney version liked the stories and liked Pooh and Piglet, and hates Eeyore too. She didn't love it as much as some other faster paced audiobooks we have, of course, but it was enough to hold her attention and have her involved and asking questions. She especially loves the chapters with Roo -- which are totally adorable. And I like having not fast paced choices available.
The humor, the love, the satire, the wisdom, all of these shine through Dennis's deeply felt readings. Please, please, if you've only encountered Pooh through Disney, listen to these recordings. As Nom de Guerre says, they will surprise you, but I think in a good way. They carry you away to the richer, smarter, deeper time and mind of A. A. Milne. If you still prefer Disney after that, so be it.
And, really, you don't have to choose: my daughter has been listening to these stories since she was three. She loves them *and* she loves the Disney movies. Please listen to these: they are a revelation.
The voices are perfect especially Christopher Robin, Pooh, Owl, Rabbit and Eeyore. But we did not like the voice of Piglet , Roo, Kanga and Tigger. Anyways, the audio book is really nice
We laughed, we smiled and we enjoyed it very much.
CONS: My biggest complaint is that all of the CDs are mislabelled! This is a set of 8 discs with a ton of material on it and I have yet to figure out what is what. A weird issue to have...
