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.

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....
