Explore the history of Western thought hidden behind the apparent simple-mindedness of the beloved Pooh bear.
     In print for more than 75 years,  Winnie the Pooh is Disney’s most successful franchise worldwide, this is a children’s classic which was not written for children.
   A.A. Milne used  his son’s stuffed animals collection and a real bear he befriended at the London Zoo for inspiration, but Christopher Robin often admitted that the tales were never read to him by his father.
     This Blackstone Audio unabridged and unrepeatable collection of "A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics" performed by Peter Dennis before his death in 2009, and is the only reading of these immortal stories authorized by A.A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin.
    
This audio set includes the ten stories of "Winnie-the-Pooh", the ten stories of "The House At Pooh Corner", the 44 poems of "When We Were Very Young", and the 35 poems of "Now We Are Six".
      Pooh’s sense of humor and the psychology of the characters who inhabit the fictional Hundred Acre Woods cannot be fully grasped by its younger audience.
     Authors like Benjamin Hoff ("The Tao of Pooh: Tao for Westeners" ) and John Tyreman Williams ("Winnie-the-Pooh and the Philosophers") have shown the depth of the wisdom in Milne’s legacy.

     AudioFile:
"Dennis expresses the multitude of emotions in a childlike tone which is key to the success of the program. All ages will enjoy this marvelous performance of Milne’s words."
     Los Angeles Times:
"Peter Dennis brings to these remarkable readings a quality that goes beyond professionalism into an area we can’t even begin to define...."
     Midwest Book Review:
"Nobody brings A.A. Milne’s timeless Winnie-the-Pooh tales alive like actor/orator Peter Dennis."

A. A. Milne

     The son of a Scottish schoolmaster(1882-1956), Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read Mathematics at Cambridge.
     His real interest was in light-hearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at 24 he became Assistant Editor of Punch.
     After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children’s literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six).
     Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It’s Too Late Now (1939). His last triumph was a stage adaptation of  Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows called Toad of Toad Hall.

Peter Dennis

     Was a published author, illustrator, and a Narrator of children’s books and young adult books.
     Some of the published credits of Peter Dennis include The Haunted Surfboard, Castaway, The Horror of the Heights, and A. A. Milne’s Pooh Classics Boxed Set.
     Christopher Robin wrote: "Peter Dennis has made himself Pooh’sAmbassador 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."
     Peter Dennis died in April of 2009.
