Winnie-the-Pooh Paperback – August 1, 1992
|New from||Used from|
Enhance your purchase
Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends—Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and the ever doleful Eeyore—have endured as the unforgettable creations of A.A. Milne, who wrote this book for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard, who lovingly gave Pooh and his companions shape.
These characters and their stories are timeless treasures of childhood that continue to speak to all of us with the kind of freshness and heart that distinguishes true storytelling.
"Winnie-the-Pooh is a joy; full of solemn idiocies and the sort of jokes one weeps over helplessly, not even knowing why they are so funny, and with it all the real wit and tenderness which alone could create a priceless little masterpiece." Saturday Review, 1926

I've only read the first one so far, and, as expected, it is a wonderful children's story; but what I didn't realize was how uniquely well-written it is. Admittedly the opening caught me off-guard and I had to re-read it twice to understand the point-of-view, but once I realized what Mr. Milne was doing, I loved it.
Yes, the storytelling is simplistic. Mr. Milne is obviously writing for a very young audience. This makes his style entirely appropriate, plus his ability to tell his story from the standpoint of a child is amazing. But it is his characters that make WINNIE work most of all. They are brilliantly childlike and likable.
Kudos, Mr. Milne. WINNIE-THE-POOH is a wonderful accomplishment, and deserves all of its accolades. I have no doubt it will still be around in another hundred years.
"There are some people who begin the Zoo at the beginning, called WAYIN, and walk as quickly as they can past every cage until they get to the one called WAYOUT, but the nicest people go straight to the animal they love the most, and stay there."
You can rush through life without paying any attention and be done with it or pay attention to what you like the most and have fun.
I love Arthur Conan Doyle and Edgar Allan Poe, but I'd rather read A. A. Milne than anyone else. Just terrific.
I love it.
It is a bit of a hard read to a 6 year old. Especially since we had to do a required 1 chapter a day. (School required that).
Great English though! And his favorite page was when the writer suddenly says: "and now I am rather tired and will stop here".
My son responded out loud insisting a page/story does not just stop like that!
It bothered him so much it was the first thing he started about the next morning! Lol.
All and all though a very very good (classic) book! (Of course)

I’m very unimpressed with the book and won’t be sharing it at all. It gives examples of worries that are inappropriate for young children “she was worried that she was getting too fat” “she worried about wars and bombs”
Essentially, the book gives a list of reasons why she shouldn’t share her problems with her parents/ siblings/ friends/ teacher. And in the end, this young child shares her problems with a stranger on a wall down the street. Completely the wrong message to be sending children in my opinion.
The idea of problems looking small when they are out in the open is a sweet one, but the narrative is completely wrong. As a small, picky, aside, the old lady then throws the empty bag away into woodland at the end of the book. Which I also don’t think is an appropriate message to be sending.
It’s a much smaller, thinner book than I had anticipated, and nothing like the jolly postman (there are no physical letters to take out and read) - the title can be a little misleading in this way so don’t get caught out!
Overall a very sweet book.
There is an innocence to Winnie-the-Pooh that is almost altogether lost in the modern day and harkens back to our collective childhoods where we dream of halcyon days and dream of adventures with our friends.
This is all bolstered by the fantastic quality of the book itself (i.e the paper quality). Seriously, just buy this already!
It is a good example of story-telling at its best, both the original book and its re-telling by the BBC.
Anyway, I'm so glad I got this cheap on the Kindle as it was lovely to read again after many years. As I read, some of the stories were a little familiar so it did feel nicely nostalgic. The writing style is so adorable and it does have clever little jokes or references in for the adults too.
And really, who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh?
