Winnie-the-Pooh is so much fun. It has all the things that make for a fantastic children’s story.

Like The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Harry Potter there is a hidden world (a much better world) on the fringes of our own. Enter a wardrobe, a platform or a tree and you are on the cusp of something grand. It’s pure escapism. However, for all that, the Pooh stories are very simply written. Unlike the two books I just mentioned, I don’t think there’s much beyond the basic humorous moments in this series.

So I don’t have much to add, other than to say, they are a delight for young readers. I loved them as a child, and I enjoyed my re-read before going to the cinema to watch Disney’s recent film Christopher Robin. And it is such a clever movie because of its fantastic use of the characters to tell an endearingly funny story about how easy it is to become wrapped up in work, and to forget what's important in life. If you liked Pooh as a child, I sincerely recommend watching it. It made me feel nostalgic and warm inside, and even made me appreciate this book a little more.
