Come with us to an enchanted place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be.

This reading has earned the prestigious Audie Award, Parents’ Choice Gold Award, Ohio State Award of Merit, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting Silver Award.

This is the only reading of these immortal stories authorized by A. A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, who wrote, “Peter Dennis has made himself Pooh’s Ambassador Extraordinary and no bear has ever had a more devoted friend. So if you want to meet the real Pooh, the bear I knew, the bear my father wrote about, listen to Peter.”

    " One of my friends here in Uganda has this sweater with Pooh on it that she wears all the time. But she had no idea who Pooh was. So I bought her this book when I was back in the States to give to her, and read it before handing it over (is that bad?) It was adorable, and whimsical and everything a children's novel should be. Can't wait to read it to my kids. If I ever have kids.... (PS - my friend out here loved it too!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mellodi Parks | 2/15/2014

    " I loved this, I cannot wait to read the others. I had never gotten to read these as a child and I'm glad that I got to read these now even as an adult. They're wonderful and I cannot wait to share them with a little one, someday. Give them a read! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 2/15/2014

    " I haven't read this since my kids were little. I enjoyed it just as much or perhaps, more! Wonderfully written. I do wonder whether modern day boys and girls would like it - I'm old enough to come from an era where colored pencils and balloons were rare and much appreciated. I'm not sure if children today would really care about such things - but still might find a favorite stuffed bear a good and trusted companion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 2/13/2014

    " A wonderful read-aloud for all ages. Each chapter is almost a stand alone story so it gives easy breaks from one reading time to the next. The characters are familiar and will be even more loved after reading about their adventures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 2/13/2014

    " Delightful. Quite the funniest book I've read in a long time. Although this is a child's book it is really an adult book in disguise, each of the characters can be part of ourselves, each little thing can be seen in Real Life - it is a humorous view of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina Goodwin | 1/1/2014

    " Winnie the Pooh was one of the first books I learnt to read.. My mum would sit in bed with me and teach me to read it instead of reading it to me. I am 16 and still love reading these classic stories. This is a childhood memory and I hope to one day read the tales of Pooh to my future children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jellysix | 11/29/2013

    " I was totally impressed with this, well, the first half anyway. The stories are great. I don't know if I've ever laughed out loud while reading as often with any other writing. It's just beautiful stuff. I didn't have much patience for the poetry, which makes up the second half of the book, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pippa Mattinson | 4/14/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shara | 2/27/2012

    " Funniest book!! I love this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/6/2012

    " I grew up with the sanitized Disney version of Winnie the Pooh, like most of us. Milne's 100 Acer's is much more subtle and clever then its derivatives. I really enjoyed reading this with my kids and seeing excellent writing and complicated characters. A must read for kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daphne | 12/31/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/27/2011

    " I don't think I've ever sat down and read the original stories. I was impressed with Milne's insight into the interests of young children. These stories make perfect sense developmentally for 4 to 6 year olds. "

    " Although I've watched Winnie the Pooh cartoons when I was younger, I had never actually read any of the stories. This book came free with the iPhone app I downloaded and I'm glad it did. It was fun and worth reading - I'm glad to be able to say that I've actually read Winnie the Pooh now. "

    " This idyll, this whole world can not be described by a human being! Funny, thoughtful and almost delightful characters. Neat little adventures to fascinate both adults and children. It contains every aspect of a good book. Go read it, if you havent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/29/2011

    " I know this is a kids book, but I have to be honest, it's just fantastic. So much better than whoever took over the story writing from AA Milne and made the writing so incredibly over simple.

    Amazing find to find kids writing at such an amazing level.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle Wheat | 4/1/2011

    " Quick and fun! amazingly dry and adorable 1920's British humor. I would recommend it to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 3/7/2011

    " I collected all four books from a 1950s printing, and I'm working through them.

    Just finished Whinnie the Pooh, the first volume, which was very cute. "

    " Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do..
    when honey jar stuck on his nose. :)..

    salah satu dari sekian kejenakaan Pooh and friends di pooh corner. Secara eksplisit ini adalah cerita anak2 yang ringan dan lucu tetapi sebenarnya setiap karakter bisa dijadikan cermin bagi kita ;) "

    " I remember being read these stories and reading them myself at a very young age. I can't help it, I'm a sucker for the hundred acre woods! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 6/30/2007

    " We read the first two in the series, but even though Gabriel was entertained by the books, he wasn't enthralled by them. He can take or leave Edward Bear aka Winnie-ther-Pooh. He does seem to like Tigger though--must be because they are both so bouncy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisbeth | 6/11/2007

    " Christopher Robin Milne is said to have complained bitterly that his childhood was co-opted by his father, and critics decry the books for being too "precious." But for me, at 10 or 11, the pre-Disney Pooh stories and two small volumes of poetry were beyond reproach. "
