Overview

What is the connection between a bear of very little brain and a honey pot? Usually it's the very sticky paw of Winnie the Pooh, as he takes a break between adventures for a little something. In these five stories, taken from the book The House at Pooh Corner, Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore, Tigger comes to the forest and has breakfast, Piglet nearly meets the Heffalump again, Pooh invents a new game, and Owl moves house. As usual they are accompanied by Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, and Owl—to say nothing of Pooh's very clever young human friend, Christopher Robin. Now with a musical introduction, Alan Bennett's delightful readings bring each and every character in the forest to life.

About the Author


Alan Alexander Milne attended an independent school run by his father before studying mathematics at Cambridge. After university he worked as an Assistant Editor at the magazine Punch and established himself as a successful author of both plays and novels, including The Red House Mystery until, with the publication of When We Were Very Young in 1924 and Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926, his career took a very different turn. Milne continued to produce works for adults but occasionally resented the success of his children's stories, which overshadowed much of his other work. In 1952 A. A. Milne suffered a stroke after brain surgery and retired to his country home in Sussex as an invalid.

We found another of these books in our childhood boxes. Our daughter is 5 and loved the idea of a "chapter" book. After she finished it, I found this one. She loves reading and I love that it is kid appropriate.

My mother read (and re-read) this book to me in my youth and I enjoyed it as much now as I did then. I am now seventy and I still laughed affectionately at Pooh and Piglet and all their friends and cried at the last chapter. What a marvelous, marvelous pair of books. I repeat: Winnie-the=Pooh is NOT a Disney creation and Shepard's illustrations are far more appealing than anything Disney has created. I just hope they have made Milne's heirs very wealthy. -B.E.Y

This fabulous cassette entertained my child on a nightmare 10-hour car journey last summer. It is beautifully characterised, funny and has all the charm of the original stories. Jane Horrocks is superb as Piglet, Judi Dench a wonderfully warm narrator and Geoffrey Palmer suitably sad as Eeyore. Beats the pants off the Disney versions. A must for all car journeys with kids.

This book is fun, about how the pooh, piglet and tiger be friend with the boy and all the fun they can creative that live a long in the forest.

A classic tale lightly illustrated and intricately written. Told uniquely from a 3rd person's view of Pooh bear's mind himself, this story takes us through pooh corner as we meet new friends and familiar ones such as Piglet, Eyore, Christopher Robin, Rabbit, and more. This story is written in a format which is easy for children to follow yet with enough detail to swallow its reader right into the plot.

Lovable characters, these Hundred Acre Wooders. They're such charicatures, and so different from one another. The stories are varied enough to keep everybody busy. They also show that a simple idea is enough for a lot of funny events.I like the simple steps of thought made explicit in the dialogue and narrative.

A delight, for all ages.

This is the book where Tigger is introduced. I didn¿t read these as a kid, but I read some of them as an adult after reading The Tao of Pooh. However, that was 20 years ago. I had forgotten how British these books are, with every chapter entitled ¿In Which¿¿ and the ¿Hallos¿ and ¿Bother!¿ This is so much better than what Disney did to it. Ernest Shepard¿s simple drawings bring more to the story than bright colors leaping off the page. It¿s rare to read a good book where you actually like all the characters.

This is the second book in the collection. Once again we meet Christopher Robin, Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo, but we are thankfully introduced to the hilarious and ever so bouncy, Tigger. A delightful story about friendship with a bittersweet ending- as Christopher Robin gets older, he just doesn't have as much time to play with his old friends. I wasn't read these books when I was a child, but my friends who got to experience them still love them and are thankful to have had them in their lives.

A continuation of delightful tales in the land where Christopher Robin's animal friends live. Many complicated adventures to enjoy. I never tire of reading these.

I think the Pooh books are even more enjoyable for adults than children.
mrsarey on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is a classic children's book. Although not very interesting for adults, this book contains self-contained stories about Pooh and his friends.
LibraryLou on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I think overall I like this better than the first one as the characters have better stories. Can be re-read over and over again, and enjoyed on so many levels
