Apart from the abrupt ending and the weird way Kanga interacted with Piglet towards the end (not to mention the enigmatic Christopher Robin in the final pages), I really enjoyed this one and want to read all of them.
The illustrations are nice, but how did I not remember how dry the narrative is?

I'm glad Kanga had a sense of humor. I wonder what Rabbit and Roo did on their Tuesdays together?

This book is intended for the young reader to read. And by young reader I mean those old enough to be interested in Winnie the Pooh. I have a hard time believing this.

First, logistically this book is not suited for the young reader. It is tiny. The print is tiny. The pictures would not keep the young reader interested. I barely noticed them.

Now, as far as the story goes, the more I read about the world of Christopher Robin, the more I am convinced that the author is trying to describe the mind o

Not bad, if you want ok kidnapping. :) Because it's a Pooh book, I let it slide, but I had to explain to my daughter why what they did was bad. If I had been Kanga, my reaction would have been less pretending and more

This is my favorite of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories created by A.A. Milne. I enjoy the funny plan Rabbit comes up with to try and get Kanga and Roo to leave the forest. However, they all become friends and like each other instead of being afraid of each other.

For me this is a excellent story of meeting new friends and letting old friends and new friends get along together. It is also a story of sharing, and being open to new things, even though it maybe different from what you do.

Part of the original Winnie the Pooh Treasury set I got when my oldest was born. They are longer than the board books we have featuring Pooh and his friends, but are still great for young children.
