"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....This is an imaginative production to boot, with original music and sound effects. 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." (Philadelphia Enquirer)

I Love these stories but...
The narrator is good (though of course I'm biased to how my father read the stories to me when I was little and no other narrator can be quite as good) but unfortunately the makers of the audio book went a little overboard and put background noises in. These are slightly distracting but wouldn't be too bad if there wasn't an oinking sound every time Piglet says anything, which makes him sound like he has an awful gas problem emanating from various orifices. "Ppptt" or "urp" every five minutes can be quite annoying. With most characters the reader tends to end his sentences with a form of verbal punctuation (ex: "pptt" or "haha!"). Other than that the reading is quite charming.

Charming, fun and gentle
My five and seven year-old sons love this audio book. I've tried to read the Pooh stories aloud (there is a knack, which I don't possess) so we all appreciate the excellent narration of these stories. Also, this is a great bed-time selection, as the pace and action are gentle.
These are not too babyish for young grade school listeners -- the language is much more sophisticated than in the Disney videos, although the characterizations are similar.

The House at Pooh Corner
My 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter have enjoyed this book nearly as much as my wife and I. The reading does this timeless classic justice, although Piglet's voice required a little getting used to. Overall, well worth the listen.

Great trip down memory lane!
What made the experience of listening to The House at Pooh Corner the most enjoyable?
I had no idea what to expect from this audio book. I was a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh when I was young (and still do enjoy the films occasionally I will admit) but I could remember nothing about the original work. This made it a joy to listen to, especially as the characters are so different from how they are portrayed by Disney.
What does Peter Dennis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
His voices were brilliant. There were a few occasions were it seemed like he had forgotten just who he was supposed to be and did the wrong voice but I didn't mind too much and thankfully it did come out in the narrative just who was meant to be speaking.
I especially loved his voices for Christopher Robin and Rabbit.
Any additional comments?
If you are a fan of the TV/Cartoons of Winnie the Pooh I would highly suggest you give the original work a chance. I was pleasantly surprised by the difference.
On a side note, the music played to split up the various stories was lovely.
