What is the connection between a Bear of Very Little Brain and a Honey Pot? Usually it's the very sticky paw of Winnie the Pooh, as he a takes a break between adventures for 'a little something.'

In these 5 stories, taken from the book The House at Pooh Corner, Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore, Tigger comes to the Forest and has breakfast, Piglet nearly meets the Heffalump again, Pooh invents a new game and Owl moves house. As usual they are accompanied by Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl - to say nothing of Pooh's very clever young human friend, Christopher Robin.

Now with musical introduction, Alan Bennett's delightful readings bring each and every character in the Forest to life. Download and start listening now!

    " Pooh is most certainly a hero of mine. Love the whole world of Milne. So tender, so kind, so authentic. I read this and Winnie-the-Pooh at least annually because they are so pure and wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KatieLynn | 2/8/2014

    " I read this the same day and the first Pooh book. Pooh and his friends are back for another fun adventure. A.A. Milne is truly an excellent writer. "

    " I love Winnie the Pooh, have done since I was a child. "

    " Cute cute cute.. Probably the cutest books I have ever read in my life- Winnie-the-Pooh and this book. The ending kinda made me teary eyed but this line will stay with me always "a little boy and his bear will always be playing". I have decided to make sure that my kids (if I have one) read Pooh stories, even if they don't like to read. This book introduced Tigger, who was not present in the earlier book. I can read it again and again, just to laugh at "WOL" and "Backson" :)) I own a Pooh myself from a long time and now I am gonna love it even more, while thinking of his adventures with Piglet. If you have seen the Disney series, I can assure that the books are funnier and better than the Disney series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn Camp | 1/13/2014

    " I absolutely love reading these stories to my son. They really get him thinking and asking insightful questions about all their mannerisms, actions, and what not. Every night is the same, "What is that silly old bear up to today?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/4/2014

    " I really love, and always have, Winnie the Pooh. Although, there's something odd about re-reading a book from your childhood...I ended up making all the connections that were intended through the stories. Each chapter of this book was a separate little story. They all center around friendship and the daily activities in the forest. There's a lot of lessons to be learned about friendship and love and how you treat others. The last story of the book was kind of sad actually, because Christopher Robin is growing up, he's slowly losing his innocence and he realizes that he will be expected to do more things in the "real" world, so he can't spend as much time with Pooh. That scene between him and Pooh was my favorite, because it was so touching, and they agree that no matter what they're going to be best friends forever. LOVEEE. On a side note, I never realized how mean and nasty Eeyore was in the book. The Eeyore they show in the movies is much more mellow and melancholy...in the book I thought he was just outright mean! "

    " I listened to the Playaway version of this. Piglet is absolutely hilarious with his snorting and Roo sounds like Punch (Punch and Judy). Pooh Sticks is my favorite story!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Mabrey | 12/30/2013

    " I just read this again. I think as an adult, we see the personality of each of the characters as part of us. Some traits i want to claim and some I am not proud of. There is so much bigger going on in these short stories than a child's view point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Brimmer | 12/24/2013

    " As good as the original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey King | 12/24/2013

    " winnie the pooh is the best. Looked at everyday in our house, by all ages, so has to be five stars and a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Hatfield | 11/19/2013

    " Wonderful. He is a great family friend pooh is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 11/7/2013

    " I read this with Jonathan over a 2-3 week period. While I love Disney's take on Pooh, I think he's even better in the original. We had a lot of fun making up tunes for all of Pooh's songs "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R. | 9/26/2013

    " Not my edition, but lovely all the same. It pains me what Disney's done to A.A. Milne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marielle | 9/9/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kittykat797 | 9/6/2013

    " At first I thought it was cute. I realized that it was kind of confusing. I only liked it when I first started reading it, but the rest just got plain boring! I would not recomend this book unless you like boring and confusing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arnaud | 9/5/2013

    " Brings back the fond memories of reading in childhood plus being free on iPhone in iBooks. Just a lovely flow of mischief, mindlessness thought of a bear trying to do right! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Owen | 8/9/2013

    " If there is a sweeter book in all of infinite time and space it is well beyond my capacity to imagine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Needleroozer | 7/19/2013

    " All of these A. A. Milne Winnie-the-Pooh books are blurred together in my head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Miller | 5/5/2013

    " A fun, cute story. Not as good as the first, but still charming. And we meet the loveable Tigger! I'm excited to read these books to Isabelle and Lucas when they get older. "

    Poor Eeyore. "

    " I love Pooh Bear and his friends. It's trite to say so, but Pooh's approach to life seems a healthy antidote to the stresses in my own life. This isn't my favorite book ever, but I do appreciate it! "

    " The second of the two Winnie-the-Pooh books, this ones was written for a little older of an audience, so the boys didn't enjoy it quite as much, but the very poignant final chapter got it all of the way to four stars. "
