To fully appreciate this dramatization, the listener must never have viewed any of the Disney Pooh cartoons--because here Pooh is not articulated by Sterling Holloway, and none of the other characters sound the same either. With Disney out of mind, the reviewer can determine that Stephen Fry and the other actors do a good job, the music is fine and the audio quality is excellent. But when Jane Horrocks's Piglet appears, even the most tolerant adult listener will want to drag fingernails across a blackboard to drown her out--she is suffocatingly cutesy. No doubt 3-year-olds will like it anyway. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
