British actor Peter Dennis breathes life into classic Winnie the Pooh stories in the first in a series of A. A. Milne's timeless bear tales. Children will be delighted as Winnie disguises himself as a little black cloud in hopes of fooling a hive's queen bee in order to grab a pawful of fresh honey. Unfortunately, Pooh's scheme doesn't quite go as planned, and he finds himself up in the air without a drip of honey, facing the possibility of rapidly plummeting to the ground. Of course, his friend Christopher Robin comes to the rescue. This unabridged book and CD set is an excellent way to encourage beginning readers or allow preschoolers to pretend to read as they listen to Dennis's lively rendition of this warm, gentle Pooh chronicle. The set includes a bonus story, "Eeyore Loses a Tail." --Deborah L. Moore
Pooh Perfection! Milne Mind-Meld!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am a Winnie-the-Pooh fanatic and made sure to raise two little boys who are as fond of Pooh as I. We have (and love) Disney's original Milne-based cartoons, but my boys grew out of those by the time they were 4 or 5. Our wonderful Peter Dennis tapes, however, are family favorites that my now 9 and 12 year old fellas still request on a regular basis. We loves these unabridged tapes and WE ADORE THIS ACTOR. To me, he is the true voice of A.A. Milne. Each of this amazingly accomplished actor's character voices is absolutely spot-on (and we adore Piglet's cute snorts). He seems to have mind-melded with Milne! In fact, we purchased a tape that had Tigger on it after we had already listened many times to our sans-Tigger tapes, and we all waited with bated breath to hear how Peter Dennis would do Tigger. As soon as we heard Tigger's first lines, we all said, "Of course that's how Tigger would sound!!!" If you love Pooh, Peter Dennis is a MUST."
