Stop everything! If at least one copy of each of these classics is not in a prominent place on your bookshelf, your home and your progeny's childhood is incomplete. Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends--blustery old Owl, bouncy Tigger, clever Christopher Robin, glum Eeyore, and the rest--have been a staple of children's literature for over 70 years in A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. And Milne's immortal collections of children's verse, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, have soothed many a savage beast at bedtime with such incomparable delights as "If I Were King" and "Us Two." All four of these classics, complete with Ernest H. Shepard's original illustrations, are gathered here in a handsome boxed set. These hardcover editions will most certainly be a cherished legacy to be handed down for generations to come. After all, as Rabbit says solemnly one day, "Without Pooh, the adventure would be impossible." (Ages 3 to 103) --Emilie Coulter

The box the books come in is very sturdy and looks great. The books themselves come with colorful dust covers and sturdy binding.
This is the complete "Winnie the Pooh" set, so you'll be getting both of the story books and both of the poem books. These are great books to get your younger children into reading and I remember reading them to my sister when she was a baby hoping she'd like them too.
The books are fully illustrated with the ~original~ artwork (black and white) and are great to have with the story.
On the bright side, the books are light enough for a small child to hold and I bet he will really enjoy adding colour to the black and white illustrations! Besides, the stories are what really matter and flicking through these original, untouched-by-Disney tales has brought back dormant memories of my own childhood. These adventures through the Hundred Acre Woods are as magical today as they were all those years ago and if nothing else, these books have reminded me of how special these stories and poems are.
Winnie the Pooh has been absorbed as part of our culture, in the process of which the original is almost forgotten. Everybody knows the Disney characters of Pooh, Tigger and Piglet. Very few remember the little boy, Christopher Robin, whose toys they were. It is a worldwide phenomenon. My son has a jigsaw puzzle of Винни Пух - a Russian transliteration, but with characters that bear no resemblance to either Milne's original or Disney.
I ripped the package open when it came in yesterday's mail, and read it to my two-year-old son well past the point at which he lost interest. It is an engrossing story, one what makes me want to keep on reading.
Five stars now, for the same reasons it was a five-star production in the early 20th century. It's worth buying a well-produced edition; these books will stand the test of time.
My daughter loves the books and that they have "their own keeper - a way to keep them together." As of today they do not stay in the book keeper at all. She constantly gets them out to look at them and the pictures. I know one day soon she will find a way to color them on her own. She is 4 yrs old and adores the stories and the poems.
She really loves the one about Rice Pudding - It's all about eating the same thing for dinner night after night and poor Mary Jane being so young can't get across that she is dreadfully tired of the pudding. Buckingham Palace and Alice, the little boy and his mother going down to the end of town... the fun for my girl goes on and on with the poems. :-)
