I was expecting something different, perhaps more insightful or deep but it was an ok children's tale. Turned a little boring halfway through. Just meh. ( )

How do you review such a charming sweet classic? Maybe you don't. It is whimsical and lyrical, and very very tongue in cheek and aimed at the adults as well as the children. And has some very clever bits (the bit where Pooh and Piglet hunt their own footprints is lovely) and some bits that make the over sensitised liberal in me cringe (Pooh eats too much when visiting, and gets stuck, and gets starved for a week.) And I'm not sure what to make of the plot 'Rabbit decides something should be done about Kanga, because she is Strange, and decides to steal her child to encourage her to leave the forest, but she deals with it with good humour and then they all stay as friends.'.

A wonderfully innocent and charming read. Characters that any child would instantly fall in love with and a world that holds a great multitude of exciting adventures. ( )

First words
Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin.
Quotations
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?” “What’s for breakfast,” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?” “I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said. (160)
So Kanga and Roo stayed in the Forest. And every Tuesday Roo spent the day with his great friend Rabbit, and every Tuesday Kanga spent the day with her great friend Pooh, teaching him to jump, and every Tuesday Piglet spent the day with his great friend Christopher Robin. So they were all happy again. (109)
[Piglet] is jealous because he thinks Pooh is having a Grand Introduction all to himself. Pooh is the favourite, of course, there’s no denying it, but Piglet comes in for a good many things which Pooh misses; because you can’t take Pooh to school without everybody knowing it, but Piglet is so small that he slips into a pocket, where it is very comfortable to feel him… and in this way he has got more education than Pooh, but Pooh doesn’t mind. Some have brains, and some haven’t, he says, and there it is. (ii-iii)
