Seventy-five years ago, that most beloved of "silly old bears," Winnie-the-Pooh, came down the stairs, "bump, bump, bump," on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. And now, after generations of children have grown up on stories about Pooh's adventures with his forest friends, the four all-time children's classics from A.A. Milne and Ernest H. Shepard have been collected in one hefty, handsome volume for another multitude of generations to enjoy. Gathered together are the poems and tales that celebrate heffalumps, Eeyore's birthday, the unbouncing of Tigger, Disobedience, Buckingham Palace, and sneezles. The stories about Pooh getting stuck in Rabbit's doorway, Piglet doing a "Very Grand Thing," and Eeyore losing a tail (and Pooh finding one) are timeless favorites for children--and grownups--of all ages. Four original classics are here, in all their glory: Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six. This beautiful edition features complete, unabridged text and all of Shepard's original illustrations, each hand painted in watercolors--this is a true collector's gem. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

Piglet meets a Heffalump:
In this story Pooh and Piglet decide to catch a Heffalump. To do this they think of a very ingenious trap: they will dig a hole in the ground just where the Heffalump will step. The Heffalump won't ever see it coming because he'll be looking up to the sky to see if it is about to rain, or if it already rains, he will be looking up if it clears up. To lure the Heffalump they put a pot of honey in the pit. But in the evening in bed Pooh gets hungry so he goes to the pit and sticks his head in the pot, where it is stuck. Piglet decides to have a look in the pit and sees a Heffalump, runs off and gets Christopher Robin who explains it is only Pooh with a pot on his head....
Expedition to the North pole:
Christopher Robin musters all the animals to go on an expedition to find the North Pole. They set out but the road is full of dangerous places and possible ambushes. Suddenly Roo falls into the water. Eeyore tries to save him with his tail, but it doesn't work. Then Pooh finds a long stick and holds it out for Roo to grab and he pulls him out. The long stick turns out to be the North Pole, Pooh found it. So they stick it in the ground and attach a note to it saying Pooh found the North Pole
I love it.
