Genre: Fiction > Children/Young Adult
Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.
The House at Pooh Corner
Pooh and Christopher Robin are the best of friends. Their adventures are always sure to be interesting — especially if they’re joined by Piglet, Eeyore, Owl, and the newest resident of the Hundred Acre Wood, Tigger!
When We Were Very Young
Verses full of bubbling nonsense and rhythm, written for the author’s son, Christopher Robin. It is for "very small children (and for their elders who get a surreptitious joy from what is meant for their little ones)."" — Sunday Review, 1924
Now We Are Six
Everyone who has read Milne’s original Pooh books knows that he can write a good hum, after all Pooh gives us several. In this volume (and the earlier "When We Were Very Young") Milne’s voice comes through more clearly, unmoderated by writing for his bear of little brain. He gives us a small volume full of poems that should surely last as well as his prose. While some of them are strongly flavoured by the time and place where he wrote them others are more universal in their subject and tone. As you read this volume you will almost certainly come across something you recognize, if it isn’t the line "James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree" that catches your memory then it might be "Just a bit of butter for the royal slice of bread." If not, then you will find many of them sticking when you have read them to a child.
Return to the Hundred Acre Wood by David Benedictus
It was eighty years ago, on the publication of The House at Pooh Corner, when Christopher Robin said good-bye to Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now they are all back in new adventures, for the first time approved by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties. This is a companion volume that truly captures the style of A. A. Milne-a worthy sequel to The House at Pooh Corner and Winnie-the-Pooh.
