A Charming, Savory, Perfect Pooh Dramatization

This is a charming, delightful, savory, perfect dramatization of about half of The House at Pooh Corner, with the following chapters from the original book:

1. In which Rabbit Has a Busy Day
2. In which Pooh Invents a New Game
3. In Which It Is Shown that Tiggers Don't Climb Trees
4. In Which a Search is Organdised
5. In Which Piglet Does a Very Grand Thing

The British actors are excellent at reading their parts, especially the narrators (two, a male and a female one, take turns) and Piglet and Eeyore. They infuse such wit and personality and understanding into their readings that the stories really come to life, making me smile and chuckle. The only words I could detect being abridged in the dramatization are certain dialogue tags like "Pooh said…"

If only the companion book, Tigger Comes to the Forest, had the chapters that are advertised for it, together it would make with Pooh Invents a New Game a complete House at Pooh Corner… But check my review of Tigger Comes to the Forest for details about what's wrong with it.
