I couldn't read this now to save my life (curiously, there hasn't been much call for me to read ancient Latin since I left the rarified halls of Academe where it was a requirement) but it was a welcome break from Cicero and the odd Medieval annalist when I could.

If eighty percent plus of goodreaders read children's books, then I can read Winnie Ille Pu and so can you!

Something triggered my memory of this today. Back when I was county Latin champ (not so lofty a title in a state with 88 counties), my parents gave me this little book as a present, and I believe I actually read it and understood it. Woe be unto me were I to pick it up today. Caveat emptor indeed. But I'm sure the Latin has done me a world of good over the years even if my memory banks are limited to such deposits as amo, amas, amat and veni, vidi, vici.

It's Winnie the Poo but in latin. Slow reading but every line is intense.

Ecce Eduardo Ursus scalis nunc tump-tump-tump occipite gradus pulsante post Christopher Robinum descendens.

A good start if you ever felt like practicing latin... It is surprising eerie, illustrating how similar yet alien a dead language can be.
Lindsay
Five stars if only for the sheer novelty of trying to read "balloon" in Latin.
Heather
Technically, I haven't really read it yet.
Michael Reed
my only translation ...long, long ago.
