WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG and NOW WE ARE SIX by A.A. Milne (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
From the unabridged collection “A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics,” here are all of the poems and verses from When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, performed by Peter Dennis.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by English actor Peter Dennis. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Peter Dennis brings to these remarkable readings a quality that goes beyond professionalism into an area we can’t even begin to define….” (Los Angeles Times)

RATING: 4+ Delightful poems for the young and old alike.
Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection “A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics,” the forty-four poems from When We Were Very Young and the thirty-five poems of Now We Are Six, performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin.
The first of A.A. Milne’s four world-famous books for children, When We Were Very Young introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time. Now We Are Six followed, becoming a modern classic in its own right.
For sheer delightfulness, the children’s rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves with their charm, humor, understanding, and irresistible rhythms.
