I was shocked by how melancholy the book allowed itself to become at the end. And how much that melancholy affected me, but as far as I'm concerned "A little boy and his bear will always be playing." Might be the most hopeful line to end a book in the English language.
It was with much apprehension that I started this- after all, my initial impression (Winnie the Pooh as it is in Disney) is vastly different from this book. In fact, I don't think I would have even picked up the book, had a friend not recommended it to me. And I'm very glad she did.

I'm surprised by how sad but realistic the end of this book was; with Christopher Robin growing up and everyone realizing he's leaving the Forest, that wonderful place where only one with enough imagination can go. It
For the final of Celebrity Death Match.

Some basic facts about Winnie the Pooh and the Divine Comedy.

(1) Have you ever tried looking up Winnie on project Gutenberg? You find that Dante gets a few thousand hits and Winnie gets none. NONE!!! And you know why? Because Disney bullied Congress years ago into being allowed to keep the copyright longer than was their legal right. And you know why they did that? Of course it is because everybody loves Winnie. Try this, if you don't believe me. Offer the

I had a deprived childhood. Ahhh! I did not read any of the Winnie the Pooh stories until I came across this recording & the companion recording of "Winnie the Pooh" until I bought them for my daughter when I was in my 40s.

It's the only story which has brought me close to crashing the car. Driving through the Lake District I heard the the Pooh sticks story as Eyeore floats under the bridge. It's difficult to see dry-stone walls, cry laughing uncontrollably, and keep control of a car on tigh

You don't need me to recommend this book to you. I just can't in good faith begin making my profile on a site about books and about me as a reader without acknowledging this work of genius. The world would be a better place if everyone could read this book and let themselves love it.

I've always loved Pooh Bear and always will. When everyone got into Snoopy, I was still crazy for Winnie the Pooh.

One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet's house to see what Piglet was doing.

Last January, I read and reviewed Winnie the Pooh. It was a reread, as is House at Pooh Corner, an indulgence, too, if you will. Milne's characters: Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, even Rabbit's friends-and-relations like 'Small' are endearing. They're not just characters in a book, they're friends. And visiting with these particu
I never had read the orginal Pooh books, so decided I should.

To quote from the back cover:
"Private research has convinced us that few people in responsible positions in society today have got to their eminence without the influence of Pooh"

And The House at Pooh Corner is home to one of my most favorite Pooh quotes (which I collected from somewhere other than the book, I guess):
"Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
'Pooh!' he whispered.
'Yes, piglet?'
'Nothing,' said

such a great book. i still find it endearing and funny. my favorite is "in which pooh invents a game and eeyore joins in" (or something to that effect). even better than the also-fantastic Winnie the Pooh.

i can't stand what disney did to these characters, especially tigger, who became an obnoxious, bouncy, chester-cheeto looking cartoon cat. read the book and see the illustrations... he bounces because he is a kitten, not because he is a freak of nature. and under no circumstances does he bounc
Oh.. the adorable-ness of Winnie the Pooh. Such a wonderful story. :)

Note: I listened to this on audiobook and let me tell you, the narrator's Tigger voice?? TOO FLIPPING FUNNY.... I was laughing so hard. Well worth it just to listen to that part. :D

I adored these stories when I was growing up and first learning to read.

Oh, such a sweet little ending XD I LOVE POOH BEAR!
One of the greatest books ever written!
Oh what a wonderful blast from the past! It's been quite a while since I last read anything to do with Winnie the Pooh. I found a beautiful old copy of The House at Pooh Corner in a used book store about a year ago and I put it aside to be read when I had more free time. If only I had read it sooner! I picked it up again a couple of days ago for a bit of light reading and some stress relief. I wanted something light and fluffy to clear my mind. Instead I got something filled with wonderful lesso ...more
When I found my 1974 edition of The House at Pooh Corner I just had to re-read this much adored childhood favourite.
It was a nostalgic visit to the 100 Acre Wood to play with Pooh, "a bear of very little brain", Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger & of course Christopher Robin.

The stories within are simple & funny & endearing & silly & I giggled & sighed my way through them. As an adult you realise how 'little brain' Pooh actually has :-) & how neurotic Piglet is &am
I like to go back and read children's books now that I'm older to see how my perceptions of them change; this was a fun one to do so with, and I think that I may have even enjoyed more now than I did when I was a kid.

The stories are so simple and straightforward, yet have so much truth and relevance to people at any stage of life. Particularly great is reading the final story in this book about Christopher Robin leaving, which I found very relevant to my current state of growing up and moving o
As a special treat for myself (and to fulfill a couple of the "Reread 4 Books" requirements for the Book Bingo Reading Challenge), I'm rereading the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne. First up:

Winnie-the-Pooh--in which we are introduced to Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl (sometimes spelled WOL), Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, and--of course--Christopher Robin. In this collection of short adventures Pooh disguises himself as a rain cloud in order to try and fool some bees into allowing him to have their honey;

The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne is the second book of Winnie-the-Pooh.

In this book and stories we get introduced to a new character, Tigger, and more adventures of the animals of 100 Aker Wood.

Oh this book is so wonderful, and somehow more poignant and (the end) melancholy, too, than the first. I laughed out out loud several times.

Eeyore's surliness shines:
"If anybody wants to clap," said Eeyore when he had read this, "now is the time to do it."
They all clapped.
"Thank you," said Eeyore. "Unexpected and gratifying, if a little lacking in Smack."

And features one of my most favorite Pooh dialogues:
"There's a thing called Twy-stymes," he said. "Christopher Robin tried to teach it to me on
This was it.

Christopher Robin is going.

At least I think he is.


Nobody knows.

But he is going—

Do we care?

We do

Very much.

(I haven’t got a rhyme for that “is” in the second line yet. Bother.)

Those two bothers will have to rhyme with each other Buther.

The fact is this is more difficult than I thought,

Christopher Robin,
I'm sure this book is the reason my three year old tells his brother that his fence isn't built "quite properly" and that he doesn't "expect" he shall go outside in the snow "after all". This is a very fun read and the characters (though they are stuffed animals) are so real that I can see myself in each one of them, particularly Rabbit, who just cracks me up. We like this book better than Winnie the Pooh because Tigger is my son's favorite character and he makes his debut in "The House at Pooh ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes children's stories...
Recommended to Jigme by: Can't remember most recently. Was looking for the opening lines I think, vaguely remembering them, and this seemed to be about the only way to obtain them...
This was really good. I read it a while ago. It appears that I have not done a review of this.

This is a really typical classic children's book. Kids, and in this case, a load of talking magical creatures.

Di Hundred Acre Wood dunia terasa begitu simpel dan lucu. Di sini Pooh hidup bertetangga dengan kawan binatang lainnya. Di sini dia bisa menggubah lagu tentang salju dan membuat puisi tentang pohon tumbang. Permasalahan sehari-harinya adalah menghitung apakah jumlah toples madunya ada 14 atau 15 buah; tentang bagaimana caranya menghentikan Tigger yang suka melompat-lompat, atau menolong Eeyore yang terapung di sungai. Petualangannya menyenangkan. Memang bukan petualangan penuh aksi sekelas Tinti ...more
Cute cute cute.. Probably the cutest books I have ever read in my life- Winnie-the-Pooh and this book. The ending kinda made me teary eyed but this line will stay with me always "a little boy and his bear will always be playing". I have decided to make sure that my kids (if I have one) read Pooh stories, even if they don't like to read. This book introduced Tigger, who was not present in the earlier book. I can read it again and again, just to laugh at "WOL" and "Backson" :)) I own a Pooh myself ...more

I did not read this until after my sons had come I thoroughly enjoy reading it

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”
