Winnie the Pooh
It was this charming book that first introduced readers to Edward Bear - or, Winnie-the-Pooh as he came to be called. Written for A.A. Milne's son, Christopher, this book was the result of many bedtime stories about the bear and his friends - and even Christopher Robin himself. It is in this volume that readers will find the beloved stories in which Pooh disguises himself as a raincloud to trick some bees ("Tut, tut, it looks like rain"), Pooh becomes quite stuck in Rabbit's hole after a visit, Pooh and Piglet hunt for Woozles, Eeyore loses (and finds) his tail, Piglet meets a Heffalump, Piglet survives a flood, Christopher Robin leads an "expotition" to the North Pole, and more. Ten chapters, or stories, are included overall, accompanied by the original artwork of Pooh and his friends by Ernest H. Shepard. 161 pgs, pb. An unabridged audio CD of this classic children's book is also available, which is performed by Jim Broadbent, comes in three CDs, and runs about 3 hrs.
