Collection: Songs from and Inspired by Walt Disney's The Tigger Movie With CD-ROM content  Edel 0108742DNY

Ian Lace writes: this album comprises 14 charming songs, mostly jolly, tongue-twisting and high spirited, and some a little sad; the last two 'Forever and Ever' and 'Winnie the Pooh' (sung by Long John Baldry) bringing a nostalgic lump to this old throat - silly ole bear, that I am! They are all nicely conceived in the spirit of well-loved A.A. Milne stories. The CD ROM content with scenes form the film is amusing and appealing. The booklet has all the lyrics and plenty of pictures of Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Eeyore, Owl and of course Christopher Robin. I think all I need do is to list the songs below with brief quotations from their words and then leave things up to my expert eleven year old reviewer, Raya Verrecchia.

The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers …is they're bouncy, trouncy…fun,fun,fun…
Someone Like Me… who laughs and sings and jumps everyday…
Whoop-de-Dooper Bounce the more you try, the more you fly…
Pooh's Lullabee … Honey bees in the tree Your honey is safe tonight [aha?]…
Round My Family Tree… heroicus figgers of my ancestor tiggers…
How to Be a Tigger… paint black stripes on our underwear and glue on whiskers too…
Your Heart Will Lead You Home … just think of your friends, the ones who care…
(Your Friendship Is) The Best Present Ever …better than a plane, a train, ice cream…
Wherever You Are … I'll hear your laugh, I'll see your smile…
It's Tough Being Small …'re very small [but] You've got a very big heart
Nobody wants To Be My Friend … except for Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Owl, Tigger…
Everything is Right …Perfectly, wonderfully, totally…Right now! Silly old bear
Forever and Ever …I want you right here beside me forever
Winnie the Pooh … tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff - silly ole bear.

Raya Verrecchia says:

I thought all the songs were good. Two of them were very good: 'Forever and Ever' which was nice and cute, lovely words and very nicely sung; and 'Your Heart Will Lead You Home' is nice and soft, beautifully sung; and you could fit a picture in your mind to go along with the music. 'Pooh's Lullabee' was nice too, mainly for little children, I think it would easily put them to sleep.

The whole album is ideal for children from 4 to 9 years of age. Winnie the Pooh and Tigger have always been favourites of mine; and these songs and the ROM part of the CD which introduced all the characters, make you want to see the film.

BUT I did not like, one bit, the man who sings "Winnie the Pooh"!!
