My spouse was unimpressed with my dalliance with the Moomins and insisted that I would be better served with The Wind in the Willows and with Winnie the Pooh. I read the former a couple of months ago, and now I've done Pooh. Well, it's charming and all the old stories I remember from when I was a kid. But I don't think it's retained its charm as much as has The Wind in the Willows, and I'm not sure it's any more charming than the Moomin stories. I would, however, love to be reading this to my 5-year-old grandson, if only I could get him to sit still for a few minutes. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book again, especially with the movie Christopher Robin coming out. I read the 80th Anniversary Edition (it came out in 2006) which means that this book is close to celebrating its 100th Anniversary and is just as inviting to children today as it was then. The book is made up of chapters, which are actually individual stories. Winnie-The-Pooh was actually called Edward Bear, and Christopher Robin named him Winnie the Pooh after seeing Winnie the Bear at the zoo. All the characters I remember were in the book, stuffed animals Piglet, Kanga and Roo, real animals Rabbit and Owl. Tigger is not in this book, he appeared in the second one. Children will enjoy these stories about these talking animals and their friend Christopher Robin. They are constantly having adventures or getting themselves in trouble. Such fun! Reading one story a night before bedtime would help introduce a new generation to Winnie-The-Pooh. The illustrations are reproductions from the original watercolours done by Ernest H. Shepard and are so whimsical and bring back an earlier, easygoing time.I didn’t remember the songs that Pooh made up in the story, but I still remember the songs from the Disney movie. My mother bought me a copy of the soundtrack on LP and I listened to it over and over. I loved those songs. I am happy that I got a chance to read it again.

A classic character that is well known all over the world. The book is structured into a short story like the format so that the reader can get an entirely new adventure every time they read the book. ( )

The Disney film stayed very true to this book, but there is a magic in reading the story instead. I enjoyed this immensely and would recommend it to anyone that has seen the films or anyone looking for wholesome tales to tell their children. I was more than pleased with this book and glad it is one of the books I finally read even if it was as an adult. ( )

First words
Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin.
“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)
