This isn't as good as the Pooh stories and after reading it you'll understand why it's out of print. Most of the stories are so short that nothing happens and they rarely end in a way so you get some enjoyment out of it. The illustrations are too notch and some of the stories are good. But overall the collection is disappointing next to his more well known work.
