We have this terrific audiobook of Winnie The Pooh
(with Stephen Fry as Pooh and Judi Dench & all sorts of wonderfulness) and were wondering if there are any more like it?

What makes this so great is that its a) a kids book, b) dramatized, with terrific voice actors, c) background music and sound effects, d) done with really high production values and a real love for (and fidelity to) the source material. (FYI: Fry will always and forever now be the voice of Pooh in my head, replacing the voice of the Disney guy, even.)
I've been trying to find other kids classic books that have been recorded in this same way, but with no success. We do a lot of long car trips in the summer and these are just the perfect thing. Can you think of anything else similar that we might enjoy? Its really the dramatization that makes the difference here, as well as the quality of the actors doing the recording.
