Poor old Pooh.
Tigger saw a dragonfly down near the stream. When he told Pooh, our friendly bear thought Tigger said he saw a DRAGON FLY.
Pooh's imagination went wild. He went round all his friends to ask them if they have ever seen a dragon. Of course they thought he was talking about dragonflies.
Pooh became convinced that dragons were very real. That night he was very concerned that the dragon would come and steal his honey.
Next day Pooh and Piglet made a net to catch the Dragon. They went down to the stream, but all they managed to catch was Tigger.
Then a dragonfly appears and Pooh realizes his mistake.
Another fun day in the 100 Acre Wood.

I consider myself lucky enough to grab a set of Winnie the Pooh Little Golden Books set, with a slipcase even, and I wasn't very surprised to see that these versions from Golden Books are a pleasant read, both by the young and the old reading to their young. I've seen and own a couple of Disney's Winnie the Pooh and the ones from the Little Golden Books are by far the best.

It unravels the story as neatly as can be, very simple and direct, uses a very understandable set of vocabulary words and definitely doesn't contain too many of the lax, highly informal sublevel storytelling that other publishers print.

On the other hand, it's rather unfortunate to see the differences of Little Golden Books now and then. A lot, but not all, of older versions are more cleverly designed. I don't see why a lot of the latter-published Little Golden Books are now using the street-level language, words that will not find their way in the vocabulary of a child who appreciates the beauty of cultured language. In fact, the words used in other versions like the Grolier's are just too confusing because of a lot of dispensable details thrown in in bad measure here and there, letting the reader on from one point to another in disarray instead of a neat spiralling flow from beginning to end.

In the Pooh and the Dragon, the font size is really large enough, perfect for the budding reader and the granddad/mom reading to their young. The illustration colors are vibrant and lively. Each page illustration-wise tells the story and builds up as you go along.

This book is worth your every penny, and more.

A Kid's Review on December 14, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a cute book about Pooh and his friends being afraid of dragonfly's. They were afraid because they thought it meant a dragon flying (they didn't know what a dragon fly was). This is a good book for kids when they are first starting to read.
