'Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders'

Curl up with a true children's classic by reading A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh.

Winnie-the-Pooh may be a bear of very little brain, but thanks to his friends Piglet, Eeyore and, of course, Christopher Robin, he's never far from an adventure. In this story Pooh gets into a tight place, nearly catches a Woozle and heads off on an 'expotition' to the North Pole with the other animals.

In this stunning edition of Winnie-the-Pooh, A.A. Milne's world-famous story is once again brought to life by E.H. Shepard's illustrations. Heart-warming and funny, Milne's masterpiece reflects the power of a child's imagination like no other story before or since. 

Do you own all the classic Pooh titles?

Winnie-the-Pooh

The House at Pooh Corner

When We Were Very Young

Now We Are Six

Also look out for Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and The Best Bear in all the World (coming soon)

Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. Whether you're 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages.

A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children's authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children's books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writings for Punch magazine, A.A. Milne met E.H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name "the man who drew Pooh".

Interest level: ages 4-8. The adventures of clever Owl, fearful Piglet, bouncy Tigger, melancholy Eeyore, and, of course, Pooh, a Bear of Very Little Brain. These classic stories feature subtle and sophisticated touches that will captivate older listeners as well as young fans of the Disney characters. Pooh’s story continues in The House at Pooh Corner.

As Christopher Robin says, Winnie the Pooh is a "silly old bear." Though he doesn't have too many brains, he has a lot of heart, and together with his friends Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Tigger, Christopher Robin and Piglet, Winnie the Pooh has many fun adventures in the Hundred Acre Woods.

A lovely read, suitable for all ages. AA Milne has a knack for telling a harmlessly funny and cute story, what a great writer. Unfortunately, I was starting to get a little sick of the writing style after reading about 8 out of the 10 stories (lol), but overall take 5 minutes and read a chapter of Pooh at least once in your life if you want a dose of childhood imagination. :)

Classic Winnie the Pooh but the stories don't have all the good extra jokes and pictures that come from the cartoons

Unbelievably charming. Like eating the yummiest apple pie, if that’s what innocence tasted like.

Lighthearted and fun, every story had something to make me laugh. Illustrations are adorable (especially of Pooh and Piglet!!)

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.

Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn’t. Anyhow, here he is at the bottom, and ready to be introduced to you. Winnie-the-Pooh.

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?"
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.
