For the first time ever, these four stories are available in one audio boxed set. Winnie-The-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, A Party for Pooh, and Now We Are Six are classic stories of friendship and fantasy, sure to delight children of all ages.
Alan Bennett has the perfect voice for reading the famous and beloved adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, Tigger, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo, Piglet and Eeyore.
In Winnie-the-Pooh, every day is an adventure. Whether Pooh is tracking a wild Woozle with Piglet, finding a tail for Eeyore, or sailing off in Christopher Robin's umbrella, he is always ready to lend a paw to his friends. The House at Pooh Corner continues the adventures of Pooh and his friends, as Pooh Bear and Piglet endeavor to surprise Eeyore with a new house, Tigger tries out a smorgasbord of breakfasts, and more. The third part includes six stories from A Party for Pooh (including "Kanga and Baby Roo Come to the Forest," "Piglet is Entirely Surrounded by Water," "Christopher Robin Gives a Pooh Party," "Tiggers Don't Climb Trees," "Rabbit Has a Busy Day," and "Tigger is Unbounced.") The fourth part of this special BBC production features the wonderful poems from Now We Are Six, beautifully read by Richard Briers and Felicity Kendal.
A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch. Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!). Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory. In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.
