    1. Winnie the Pooh, light of my life, fire of my loins My sin, my soul Win knee the Pooh the tip of the lip taking a trip of three steps down the palate to return at four to kiss Pooh He was Pooh, plain Pooh, in the morning, standing eighteen inches in one sock He was that scruffy old bear at school He was Mr Winnie Pooh on the dotted line But in my arms he was always Bear.


    2. In which the animals meet a Hostile Reviewer, and Pooh invents a New BreakfastOne morning, Pooh and Piglet were walking through the Hundred Acre Wood, when they spied a strange Creature lying on the ground As they got closer, they could see that it looked a bit like a very large Boy But what was most remarkable was that someone had tied it down with hundreds of tiny ropes It could hardly move a finger, and there was even something tied over its mouth Mmf said the creature in a loud but rather st [...]

    4. Winnie the Pooh by A.A Milne was my favorite book series as a child Later, when my own kids sat listening to the adventures of Christopher Robin, Pooh Bear, Piglet, and Eeyore, and the gang, it was a little bit of a shock to discover this series, with its charming stories, are not just for kids.A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference I enjoyed sharing these stories with my own children, loving the chance or excuse to read them all over again, struck by the h [...]

    6. The Winnie the Pooh books are great because everyone has some sort of problem Pooh is painfully na ve, Piglet is neurotic, Owl is a narcissist, Eeyore has major depression, Tigger is hyperactive, Rabbit is a sociopath, and Kanga needs to spend an afternoon with The Feminine Mystique It s good for kids to learn that pretty much anyone you meet will have some sort of major problem.


    7. Book ReviewCan you believe Winnie the Pooh by A.A Milne is almost 100 years old I was shocked when I found out I thought it was from the 1950s or 1960s nonetheless, it s an amazing memory So many fun characters, great childhood moment and even some adult ones come from these books and the subsequent mass market media that came from them It always had me wondering what exactly is a pooh, as in bear Christopher Robin s made up name, so it seems, came from a childhood bear and the name of a swan In [...]

    9. So beautifully and so simply written deceptively so by A.A Milne and exquisitely illustrated by E.H Shepard initially black white line drawings and later colour washed by Shepard himself These are the stories of a boy and his bear, his world and all the wonderful characters that inhabit that world 100 Acre Wood, his childhood and ultimately the passing of that childhood What could have been especially considering the era in which they were written a particularly twee, sickly sweet and very dated [...]

    11. Whenever I think of Winnie the Pooh, I think of an incredibly sweet melancholy Like, A.A Milne is not allowed to make me feel these feels in the form of a children s story book If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard Promise me you ll always remember You re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think You can t stay in your co [...]



    12. Pooh gets shot for godsake I don t remember that in the version that was read to me as a child What I recall were the sweet, pastoral tales of human like animals living semi silly existences in their quaint village esque neighborhood in the woods I liked Pooh, his muddled world view and convoluted logic, and Piglet s utter meekness had its charm, however Tigger was mah boy He was my favorite character in the book and coincidentally my favorite ornament on my family s christmas tree Reading Winni [...]

    17. This is the first book written by A.A Milne for his son Christopher Robin I found all the stories whimsical and adorable This book contains 10 short stories that are loosely connected Especially the last 3 stories where Christopher Robin and Pooh refer back to them I read this book outloud to my children and they loved it I might have to get the sequels My favorite story is the first one, called In Which We Are Introduced to Winnie the Pool and Some Bees, and the Stories Begin I ve seen this sto [...]

    21. Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003.Winnie the Pooh is such an English Treasure, it seems impossible that I had never read it before, not in my childhood or in my adulthood However, being English means that I already know all about Pooh Bear, his friends and that most treasured English childhood past time of Pooh Sticks.It was so charming and written so well, but I found it really didn t go anywhere I wish I had read it as a child beca [...]

    24. 3 Stars It was nice to finally read these oringal adventures of Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh and all of their friends The story was lovely and surprisingly quite whimsical I will say though that even though I grew up watching various animated versions of Winnie the Pooh, I never truly realised how daft Pooh Bear was I guess that s the charm of childhood interpretation.
