Winnie the Pooh - A. A. Milne

Winnie the Pooh is one of the most recognizable childhood icons. A.A. Milne's writing is simple, yet it gives the reader a sense of wonder. His writing also has great humor.

In this series of short stories, Milne tells the story of Christopher Robin, Pooh Bear, Piglet, and many other beloved characters. The first story tells the reader about how Pooh attempts to trick bees into thinking he's a cloud so he can steal their honey. In yet another quest for honey, Pooh manages to get stuck in Rabbit's front door. His loyalty is seen when he saves Piglet from a flood.

Piglet, an anxious fellow, joins up with Pooh to hunt down a Woozle and later to trap a Heffalump. But even brave Piglet can get caught up in the misadventures of his friends. He ends up getting caught up in Rabbit's scheme to trick Kanga and ends up having to take a bath.

Poor depressed Eeyore thinks nobody cares about him, but Pooh and friends prove him wrong. When Eeyore loses his tail, Pooh goes out in search of it. And when everybody forgets about his birthday, Pooh and Piglet go out to find him the best gifts they can.

With lovable characters and fun stories, many will continue enjoying Winnie the Pooh for years to come.
