A. A. Milne
Genre: Children
Published: 1926
Personal Rating: 4.5/5
Yearly Count: 2

What an absolutely adorable book! It was so simple and silly, yet so very sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friendships, definitely a pleasurable experience. I look forward to reading more of their adventures.

Out of many quotable quotes, here's one I really liked:
"Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon."

  1. Had you never read Puuh before? I'm glad you did if it was the first time.

    You are off to a great start this year, Joy - two books with 4.5 ratings. I hope it will continue for you.

  2. oh I love Winnie the Pooh. I love Eeyore most of all. Glad you enjoyed it.

  3. Raidergirl3 ~ I know . . . what's the matter with me? I didn't even read Pooh to the kids. However, they read the books and I did watch the cartoon with them!

    Yes, I'm a happy camper with my choices thus far. AND . . . the Lawson book I'm reading is very good, too. :)

    Alix ~ Each of the characters had a part in the book. They were all so much fun.

  4. Great minds think alike - I have just finished this one for the young reader's challenge as well :)

  5. I've never read this before either, but I have it on a challenge list. Glad to hear you found it so totally I'm really looking forward to it!

  6. Sally ~ Thanks for putting me in such fine company. :) I see you weren't as thrilled with it as I was though.

    Debi ~ It's very simple-minded, but the humor or silliness of the scenes is very cute. I did really enjoy it and want to read more.

  7. I have never read the Pooh books. I feel culturally deprived. I think I'll read them to my grandson when he gets older.

  8. Framed ~ While the characters are adorable, I think waiting a bit would be good so they understand the scenes. OR Grandma can explain. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
