[Editor’s Note: The following is a combined review with KANGA AND ROO COME TO THE FOREST.]--A.A.Milne was a master at addressing issues important to young children. In these recordings his concerns are how to deal with the new child in the neighborhood who upsets the balance of friendship and how to be independent and resourceful. In addition, the adventures of Pooh and Christopher Robin rescuing Piglet by umbrella boat after they receive his “missage” in a bottle and Rabbit’s “Plan to Capture Baby Roo” are delightful stories that will be remembered. One listens with pleasure as Grammy Award winner Charles Kuralt narrates these stories of flood and new friendships in the Hundred-Acre Wood. His voice is rich, relaxed, and steadily paced. He adds gentle hints of emotion and excitement as emphasis but lets Milne’s enduring and delightful tales shine their own light. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
