A. A. Milne brings to life Christopher Robin’s toy friends in this lovely children’s adventure. Winnie-the-Pooh, being a very special teddy bear, is a constant friend who joins in with other toy friends in the Hundred Acres Wood setting.

For children, there are many adventures with numerous lessons and rhymes to sing along with. Adults will be delighted to see real life characterizations portrayed in the book. Friends of Christopher Robin are favorites of both adults and children alike. The characters are colorfully illustrated as the dearest Pooh Bear, melancholy Eeyore, motherly Kanga, baby Roo, energetic Tiger, overly conscious Piglet, scholarly Owl, and hardworking Rabbit.

“I have my own Pooh. Pooh is my best friend! Pooh is very nice. I always sleep with Pooh, play with Pooh, and take Pooh to school. Always! Pooh makes me happy when I am sad. I love to hug Pooh.” Child Reviewer: Mishal, age 5
