Some stories were silly, some were brilliant but the star of the show was of course the best bear in the world, the most lovable, huggable, adorable, sweetest, most innocent bear ever brought into existence. It all came to a head for me when Pooh came up with the idea to save Piglet from a horribly wet encounter in the driving rain and so I defy any good hearted soul to read this story and not get emotional.
At one point the stories bordered on comic farce - in a good way, of course - and all but one of the characters are an absolute joy. Of course, we don't dislike Eeyore - but you kind of have to feel sorry for the silly donkey. But maybe that is the donkey's plot in life - to exist in a state of permanent dismay. Having never been a donkey myself, I can't say. But what I can say is that WINNIE THE POOH, Christopher Robin and the entire population of the HUNDRED ACRE WOOD is a landmark of western literature and should be placed alongside the great works of Tolkien, Asimov , George RR Martin and even Jordan, and so thanks must go to the brilliant A A Milne for having the intellectual foresight of creation, and also thanks be to Amazon for making such an awesome reading experience available at such a low price.

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?
