This program exemplifies the potential quality audio has for complementing text. Soothing music introduces and links the stories and verses.
Philadelphia Enquirer, Sandy Bauers
The unabridged recording of A.A. Milne's Pooh stories and the 44 verses from When We Were Very Young is my best bet for a holiday gift for a young child. This is neither the hyperactive stuff of Disney nor the saccharine treacle of so many other children's recordings. The recording has a wonderful pastoral feeling to it. It is sweetness and warmhearted fun through and through. Actor Peter Dennis turns in a meltingly lovely narration. His voice is calm and friendly, yet he manages distinctive voices for each of the characters. He does an amazing little snorting noise for Piglet. Eeyore is suitably dour, and Pooh, the "bear of very little brain" sounds endearingly witty. This is an imaginative production to boot, with original music and sound effects. In the beginning, there's a grandfather-sounding clock ticking serenely in the background. In the outdoor scenes, frequently there are birds chirping. In many productions, sound effects are too loud and compete with the narration, but this is the first one to have gotten the balance just right.

This is, without a doubt, one of the finest produced audio versions of this great A.A. Milne children's classic. You'll be enchanted by the reading of Peter Dennis as he brings to life all of the wonderful characters from these charming books: Winnie-the-Pooh, of course, and Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and little Roo, and (perhaps best of all) Eeyore! These companions of Christopher Robin have a smashing time getting in and out of trouble -- and the world of Pooh Bear is quite delightful, regardless of your age. This unabridged collection marks the first and only time that all of Milne's ten immortal stories from Winnie-the-Pooh and forty-four delightful verses from When We Were Very Young have been recorded. Handsomely packaged in a wood-branded gift box. A great gift for children of all ages!
The Arizona Daily Star, J.C. Martin
Most people who are going to get acquainted with the A.A. Milne children's classic "Winnie-the-Pooh" have done so by the time they got to kindergarten. It has taken me a little longer -- until last week, as a matter of fact. On first try, I did not get very far. I decided my failure was not due to my resistance to the teachings of The Way, but because I had never read "Winnie-the-Pooh. So when I was sent a boxed set of four tapes incorporating Milne's "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "When We Were Very Young" I realized salvation could be at hand. The production is performed by the incredible Peter Dennis, who plays all the parts with flawless confidence. The set is thoughtfully packaged. On the cards that come with each tape, there is a listing of the chapters read. The graceful, original music for piano and woodwind is by Don Davis
