Review for both Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. Even though I knew that the characters made famous again through Disney were based on A.A. Milne’s creations, I’ve never read the original stories until recently- and only after reading some passages on a calendar at work. The writing was funny, silly, and just full of innocent charm that extended to the wonderful characters. My favorite parts were the explanations that didn’t really explain anything at all. I had the impression there were hundreds of stories that took place in the Hundred Acre Wood so I was surprised that there were only two such books. The ending was quite sad. These stories in which Pooh and company go off on their adventures should be required reading for adults just to be reminded of how much fun and wonder there is in life.
