it was amazing
bookshelves: 2011

I loved, loved this series as a kid. It is amazing how many of these stories have crept into my vague memories. I've had a hardcover copy of the books since I was 20. I don't know if I re-read it then, but I just picked this up one night this week and started reading it.

I was delighted by the whimsical nature and the wordplay! There was so much wordplay that I didn't pick up on as a child. I love the stories and the dialogue and description and the rhythm and use of language in these stories. Someone could write a Thesis on the Use of Capitalization in Winnie the Pooh.

There's really nothing much to criticize, except that the characters sometimes act like jerks. But don't we all?

Please note that I have the copy with the original illustrations. None of that Disney Winnie the Pooh garbage for me.
