    As part of a children's book readathon on my blog in August 2018 voters chose Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne as one of our award winning books to read this week I was very excited to pick up this classic again as I haven't read it in over thirty years I've seen several shows and cartoons with nieces nephews and cousins but reading the wonderfully illustrated picture books was a fresh experience I adore the world Milne has created with all the amazing characters in the woods It's a bit of fantasy and magic combined with reality and lessons I'd forgotten how 'mischievous' Pooh and his friends could beWhen we picked this classic I never specified which of the books to read silly of me actually as Pooh might think or say I left it up to each reader I borrowed the book from the library and it seems to be books 1 and 2 so I read than I'd planned At about 150 pages it has some illustrations but way text than I remembered It was still adorable to read There were 10 stories introducing different characters and scenarios ranging from an encounter with bumble bees where Pooh classically steals the honey or tries to to poor Eeyore losing his tailIf you've never sampled Winnie the Pooh get to the library now and read one of the stories At the very least tempt yourself by watching a cartoon version At least now I know where Christopher Robin comes from who the bear family is and what a pooh actually means I definitely want to check out the movie that came out earlier this year last year on Christopher Robin

    Have a deep long look at the image above That motley crew are undoubtedly the most famous toy animals in existenceWinnie the Pooh Piglet Eeyore Kanga I cannot see Roo and last but not least TiggerA A Milne and established playwright and writer constructed silly nursery stories and poems for his young son Christopher Robin built around his beloved toys He published them And much to his chagrin he came to be known as the creator of Winnie the Pooh all his serious works were forgottenRead this book and you will understand whyTrue nothing much happens in the stories There are no hair raising escapades no dashing adventures and no earth shaking events What we have here are a bunch of rather silly animals the team mentioned above along with two imaginary ones Rabbit and Owl in Hundred Acre Woods doing a lot of silly things talking nonsensically though pompously most of the time and making prize fools of themselves Yet these stories are magical for adults and children alikeChristopher Robin is the acknowledged lord of this idyllic kingdom the stories start when he comes down the stairs dragging Pooh bear behind him bump bump bump and ends when he goes up the stairs in the same fashion The cosy world of the nursery transforms itself into a magic land where you can hunt heffalumps or go on expotitions to the North Pole The cast of characters are always the same and the happenings similar Where these stories score are in the way the characters are etched With true English underplayed humour Milne has invested these stuffed toys with fascinating personalitiesPooh the Bear of Very Little Brain but subject to occasional flashes of brilliance and bursts of versificationPiglet the smallest and weakest of them all but sometimes capable of doing Very Grand ThingsThe clever Rabbit many a time too much so for his own goodThe pedantic and pompous Owl who can't restrain himself from holding forth at the slightest provocationThe long suffering Eeyore with his never ending complaintsThe devoted Kanga and her frisky little son Roo whom she keeps in her pocketHappy go lucky Tigger bouncing all over the woodsThese characters are typically English in fact they could have stepped out from a PGWodehouse novel When a child reads these stories he she will enjoy them at their face value; while the perceptive adult will be fascinated by the subtextIt is no surprise that these stories endure As Milne says the Forest will always be thereand anybody who is Friendly with Bears can find it Christopher Robin will grow up; making way for other kids who will take his place But this imaginary landscape will endure because in that enchanted place on the top of the Forest a little boy and his Bear will always be playingFantastic bookPS The illustrations by EHShepard should also be mentioned They are so much a part of the story that we cannot imagine the book without the pictures

    For the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament Heart of Darkness 25 versus The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie the Pooh 24In which the animals go on a Second Expotition and Pooh discovers that Not Everyone Likes HumsThere was a corner of the Hundred Acre Wood that the animals rarely visited Even Eeyore found it too Sad and Gloomy and it had than its fair share of annoying insects Owl in his grand way sometimes called it the Forest's Heart of Darkness and that always made Piglet shiver and say thank goodness he wasn't going to go there soon no thank you So as you can imagine not all the animals were pleased when Christopher Robin told them they would undertake a Second Expotition to find out what was in the Dark PatchI'm not going there no thank you said Piglet trying to sound as firm as possible I'm very busy any number of things to do like like But Christopher Robin just laughedDon't worry Piglet he said We'll all look after you Just stay next to Pooh and you'll be uite safe And before Piglet knew what had happened they were all walking towards the Dark Patch in a long line with Christopher Robin and Pooh and him at the front Rabbit's Friends and Relations at the end and the other animals in the middleThe Dark Patch was even Darker and Gloomier than they remembered and strange noises came from the trees The further in they got the worse it became The ground turned wet and marshy and one Friend and Relation had to be pulled out when he started to sink Piglet clutched Pooh's hand as tightly as he could and tried not to look around I'm scared Pooh he whispered You don't think there are Heffalumps hereWhat I think said Christoper Robin who had overheard is that Pooh should give us one of his Hums And Pooh who had been thinking the very same thing but had been too shy to say so cleared his throat and began On Monday when the jungle's hotI wonder to myself a lotNow is it true or is it notThat what is which or which is what Piglet released his grip on Pooh's hand a tiny fraction so he continued On Tuesday when there's gnats and fleasAnd pythons slither through the treesThen very readily one seesThat these are whose but whose are these There aren't really any Pythons asked Piglet in a terrified voiceWell said Pooh I only put them in because they Came To Me I'm going to take them right out again And he continued On Wednesday But the animals never found out what happened on Wednesday because at that moment a loud groaning voice came from the forest right in front of themThe Hummer The Hummer it saidOh Pooh said Piglet It is a Python Or a Heffalump Oh what shall we do I don't know said Pooh Whatever it is it Doesn't Like My Hums He wondered if he should feel offended but before he could decide they suddenly came out in a remarkably pleasant clearing The sun was shining brightly there was soft grass to sit on butterflies were flitting between the flowers and a charming little lake just seemed to call out to the animals to paddle their tired feet in itWhat a lovely place said Kanga in surprise Who could have imagined it would be right in the middle of the Dark PatchI shall call it Pooh's Pond said Christopher Robin firmly And now I think it's time for lunchSo they all unpacked their food and had a perfectly wonderful picnic And from that day on no one was ever again scared of the Dark Part of the Forest

    Another one of those “imbibed with mother's milk” books like The Wind in the Willows and The Hobbit which I am incapable of commenting on with any sort of objectivity I get a kick out of Pooh's “hums” and the characters are old friends My dad's nickname for my mom was “Pooh” and she introduced him to the Pooh books when they were dating he was a Jewish boy from Staten Island and knew all about science and philosophy but had missed out on most of the children's classics and lines and characters from the books were part of our family culture My copy is one I purchased on a long ago and fondly remembered trip to England with my best childhood friend so there's that much sentiment involved You get the picture – I turn to mush when it comes to Pooh Anyway this is my last “read this to my mom while she was dying of dementiacancer” review because well I don't get to read her any books But we got to finish this one On Tuesday morning her last day I read her chapter IX which is the one where Eeyore finds Owl a new house only it happens to be Piglet's house and Piglet does the Noble thing and then X “An Enchanted Place” That last chapter chokes me up in a “normal” reading – when reading to a child Christopher Robin is leaving his “nursery days” and he asks Pooh to always remember him He Christopher Robin doesn't want to leave but it's time and he has to but a part of him will always remain in this enchanted place with Pooh Mom was fading away but she was still aware and registered the illustrations I showed her I only bothered her with the best ones She passed away Tuesday night and I'll miss her terribly but I think this was a fine book to end with

    I think everyone has heard the name Winnie the Pooh at some point I even remember watching the TV show when I was younger but not for long However I'm one of those people who never got to read the book as a kid and I only rediscovered it now while catching up with all the classics I've missed out onSo I found this all in one volume online and had to have it since it not only contains all the stories but also has the original illustrations by Ernest Howard ShepardI have to say this book is especially delightful because it contains lots of information about the author and illustrator and I always love learning about the interconnectedness of the literary worldIn this case we learn that the author AA Milne had a son called Christopher Robin who was his inspiration His son's first toys were a stuffed bear pig donkey and tiger the animals that formed this story The name for the bear in part comes from a she bear that was kept at London Zoo that Christopher Robin loved to visit there is a great movie about it called A Bear Named Winnie with Michael Fassbender I love it although I always cry And the story was only ever published thanks to Mrs Milne We also learn that EH Shepard's daughter Mary is the illustrator of the Mary Poppins books and that EH Shepard became so famous for his Winnie Pooh illustrations that he was commissioned to do the original ones for The Wind in the Willows as wellIn fact AA Milne loved the illustrations so much that he wrote the following tribute to EH Shepard When I am goneLet Shepard decorate my tombAnd put if there is roomTwo pictures on the stone;Piglet from page a hundred and elevenAnd Pooh and Piglet walking 157 And Peter thinking that they are my ownWill welcome me to heaven The book itself is divided into two parts1 Winnie the Pooh containing the Introduction by the author and 10 storiesand2 The House At Pooh Corner consisting of A Contraditction and 10 storiesBefore the Introduction there is another dedication this time to Mrs MilneTo HerHand in hand we comeChristopher Robin and ITo lay this book in your lapSay you're surprisedSay you like itSay it's just what you wantedBecause it's yours Because we love youIt's these little things that make this edition so special and precious because it allows us a glimpse at who the author was To think that both AA Milne and EH Shepard served in World War I and Shepard losing his first born a son in Word War II and yet managed to still be kind and gentle and creative and inspiring to me they radiate a certain brightness I did not expect from survivors of a World War I don't think there is much I need to say about the stories themselves Pooh is the silly old bear who often gets into trouble or is just clumsy while being surrounded by a marvellous cast of friends that are all distinct and lovely and funny The stories are heart warming but also have a deeper meaning as one can only unlock while growing up That is what makes these tales so important to get the stories read to you by a parent when you are little enjoying the sillyness and coziness of it all; then keep reading or re reading them when you get older and discover another layer and some hidden messages To me these are timeless and absolutely essentialAnd here are my two absolute favourites although I could uote almost the entire book here

    I may be the only person on the planet not automatically delighted with Pooh Or rather I know I'm not the only one because of my daughterShe complained about being bored no less than a dozen times and fell asleep sitting up 5 timesSighAh well not every book is a winner for every person AlasFor me I personally liked The Tao of Pooh much much better I guess I get kinda annoyed with Bears of Little Brain

    “Rivers know this there is no hurry We shall get there some day” So I made myself a large cup of tea with honey got under blankets and read this favorite of mine well a favorite might a an understatement I might have molded into the Pooh Bear himself and I'm oh so okay with it “Some people talk to animals Not many listen though That's the problem”There are kids books and then there are books for all ages Books that are not only adorable but profound that they make you laugh out loud whether you're 9 19 or 29 and beyond of course“Pooh said Rabbit kindly you haven't any brain I know said Pooh humbly” The edition I read wasn't this one I found incredibly cute and antiue one in a local charity book store but Goodreads didn't even have that edition in its archives tut tut My WEBSITEMy INSTAGRAMMy WORDPRESS BLOG
