The World of Pooh by A.A. Milne

The World of Pooh: The Complete Winnie the Pooh and House at Pooh Corner
by A.A. Milne [j Milne]

These are the original stories of the Hundred Acre Wood written by A.A. Milne 90 years ago now in 1924. This is really a collection of both books, in the series. I hadn't read them as a child; I just knew the Disney versions, as I'm sure is the same for many people. The books had some familiar stories like the invention of the game Pooh Sticks, the night Tigger arrived in the woods, and the great flood. I really enjoyed reading it. It'd make a good gift for a child, or you could check it out from the library and read it together. Either way I think this is a classic to not miss out on. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
