I have been away, thankfully only as far as Crieff in Perthshire, so I haven’t experienced any ash-related travel problems. The journey was surprisingly relaxing, made more so by A A Milne. Even if Winnie the Pooh isn’t your thing, the giftbox set of 20 stories (produced unexpectedly by my granddaughter from her voluminous travelling bag) really should not be missed.
The stories are read by a star cast of Stephen Fry, Judi Dench, Jane Horrocks, Geoffrey Palmer, Michael Williams et al., and it has to be the best reading ever, the dry humour comes over so well. The star of the show is Jane Horrocks as Piglet, her performance is amazing.
