Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection “A. A. Milne’s Pooh Classics,” the ten stories of The House At Pooh Corner, performed by Peter Dennis.

In A. A. Milne’s wonderful companion volume to Winnie-the-Pooh, you will rediscover Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore, and all their friends—and be introduced to the irrepressible and very bouncy Tigger.

As you begin to listen to this beloved book of A. A. Milne’s simple and timeless tales, you’ll enter that enchanted place on the top of the Forest where “a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.”

This is the only reading of these enthralling stories authorized by A. A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, who wrote, “Peter Dennis has made himself Pooh’s Ambassador 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.”

Author Bio
A. A. Milne

Alan Alexander Milne (1882–1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in lighthearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four 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).
