    As part of a children s book readathon on my blog in August 2018, voters chose Winnie the Pooh by A.A 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 be.When 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 tail.If you ve never sampled Winnie the Pooh, get to the library now and rea...

    Have a deep, long look at the image above That motley crew are undoubtedly the most famous toy animals in existence.Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga I cannot see Roo and last but not least Tigger.A 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 forgotten Read this book, and you will understand why.True, 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 alike.Christopher Robin is the acknowledged lord of thi...

    For the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament, Heart of Darkness 25 versus The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie the Pooh 24 In 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 Patch I 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 laughed Don t worry, Piglet he said We ll all look after you Just stay next to Pooh and you ll be quite 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 middle.The Dark Patch was ev...

    Celebrity Death Match tournament versus Mary Poppins.Christopher Robin May I color with my Winnie the Pooh and friends coloring book before I make up my bed with ideal hospital corners My shins are scraped from having too much fun cleaning.His boy lips turn to blue in his deathly pale white face Her mask conforms to a perfect Noh shape He reads the lips No Oh noh Oh no Christopher Robin is dying.Mary Poppins I am Governess to the good Christopher Robin My credentials say it all because I do it all I transform children into productive adults of society who will feel a fondness for me long after they have toppled their mothers and fathers from their pedestals That is to say that my shit never stinks But today he is too ill to tidy up the nursery Another name he asks to see on his dying breath A spoonful of fun fun coated in chocolate frosting has not made the medicine go down in the most delicious way Mary Not the virgin Mary It is I, Mary Poppins I suspect the bear has sewn the pills into his belly and is redistributing them on the black market, to the hospital orderlies and re...

    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 dementia cancer 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 norm...

    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 on.So 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 Shepard.I 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 world.In this case, we learn that the author A.A 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 E.H Shepard s daughter Mary is the illustrator of the Mary Poppins books and that E.H 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 well In fact, A.A Milne loved the illustrations so much...

    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 antique one in a local charity book store, but G...

    Includes Winnie the Pooh and The House At Pooh Corner both of which have 10 chapters.A lot funnier than I expected Started reading this a few days before National Winnie the Pooh Day Jan 18 the birthday of A A Milne, b 1882.A little confusing for young children because of the point of view The narrator A A Milne is telling a story about his telling a story to his son, Christopher Robin see pp 1 2, 87 The About A A Milne section at the beginning says that Christopher Robin Milne was Alan Alexander and Daphne Milne s only child He received stuffed animals bear, tiger, pig, donkey from Harrods Apparently, Daphne is the one who first had the idea of have Alan write stories about the animals Ernest H Shepard illustrated the books based on his visit to the family farm, which has pine trees, a stream, and a bridge Milne died the year my dad was born 1956 Shepherd also illustrated Kenneth Grahame s The Wind in the Willows.A common theme is the anxiety characters have about not knowing answe...
