WINNIE-THE-POOH

by | Read by Jim Broadbent

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1926

Milne's beloved classic (which can be read again and again and still delight the whole family) is an ideal candidate for an audio production, as Charles Kuralt has already proved with his own fine narration. In contrast to Kuralt's version, however, narrator Jim Broadbent's reading is distinctly British, though equally infused with warmth and humor. Broadbent's Pooh has a deep, growly voice, and his companions (nervous Piglet, gloomy Eeyore, suspicious Rabbit) are all lovingly differentiated by Broadbent, who regards them with the unreserved affection of Christopher Robin himself ("silly old Bear"). Purists will be grateful for this unabridged, non-Disney-tainted production. J.C.G. 2004 ALA Notable Recording
