Editorial Reviews

Tim Wynne-Jones
The House at Pooh Corner is, to this day, my favorite childhood book, as much for Shepard's illustrations, I'm sure, as for Milne's brilliant text.
Riverbank Review
School Library Journal
Gr all levelsPenguin's production amplifies the fact that A.A. Milne has created some of the most memorable poetry and prose in children's literature. Charles Kuralt narrates all the tapes. When We Were Very Young resounds with Kuralt's lively reading of the nonsensical and onomatopoetic rhymes that fill the heads of toddlers. Opposite these poems, the narrator reads, with loving care, the verses about the real and imaginary playmates that warm youngsters' hearts. Now We Are Six reflects the growing complexity of a child's world. The narrator's voice is soft and vulnerable when reading of the innocent, inquisitive thoughts that preoccupy children, yet Kuralt speaks with a touch of exasperation when reading the poems depicting the young's struggle to understand the adult world. He does equally as well with Milne's stories. All the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood are introduced and their humorous escapades chronicled in Winnie-the-Pooh. While portraying the characters, Kuralt's child-like tone reflects their goodness, innocence, and wee intellect. The House at Pooh Corner continues the adventures of Pooh and introduces the bouncing, pouncing, lovable Tigger. Besides the delight children will experience when listening to the light-hearted, captivating stories, young listeners will also identify with the universal hopes, fears, and wishes of the characters. Kuralt's deep, learned-sounding voice gives the narration a fatherly, comforting feel. Libraries will want to acquire these high quality productions.Mark P. Tierney, William B.

We found another of these books in our childhood boxes. Our daughter is 5 and loved the idea of a "chapter" book. After she finished it, I found this one. She loves reading and I love that it is kid appropriate.

My mother read (and re-read) this book to me in my youth and I enjoyed it as much now as I did then. I am now seventy and I still laughed affectionately at Pooh and Piglet and all their friends and cried at the last chapter. What a marvelous, marvelous pair of books. I repeat: Winnie-the=Pooh is NOT a Disney creation and Shepard's illustrations are far more appealing than anything Disney has created. I just hope they have made Milne's heirs very wealthy. -B.E.Y

This fabulous cassette entertained my child on a nightmare 10-hour car journey last summer. It is beautifully characterised, funny and has all the charm of the original stories. Jane Horrocks is superb as Piglet, Judi Dench a wonderfully warm narrator and Geoffrey Palmer suitably sad as Eeyore. Beats the pants off the Disney versions. A must for all car journeys with kids.
