Alan Milne – Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh

Is there somebody who doesn’t know Winnie the Pooh? No! Everybody know the lovely Pooh Bear and his many friend that live in the Hundred Acre Wood. In reality it was Five Hundred acre Wood – Ashdown Forest where the Milne family lived.

Alan Alexander Milne based the characters of his bear stories on his son’s toys. He also named the character Christopher Robin after his son Christopher Robin Milne. We all have a special place in our hearts for Winnie who allegedly has very little brain but otherwise is a very likeable character and loves honey.

The best friend of Pooh – Piglet is a brave little animal who likes going on adventures with Winnie. Then there’s the donkey Eeyore with a small pink bow on his tail, and the very clever Owl who always offers his opinions and tells stories about his many relatives. Yawn! :) But we mustn’t forget the rabbit who is known to make his own decisions and to like organising and leading all sorts of events and gatherings.

Kanga – the mother of a baby kangaroo Roo doesn’t have too much time for anything else than looking after her naughty kid.

Talking about Christopher Robin – every small creature’s best friend – helps his entourage get out of many tricky situations.

This book, like any important work of literature, has won it’s place on the shelves of many generations mainly due to the strength of its characters. Every reader can find his favourite character in this book.

Reviews
Eeyore is the best. He is absolutely my favourite character. He is so sweet vulnerable and self-dependent.

This is a very good gift for children. I bought this book for my son and we are reading this story at bed time.

I read this book a way back then, in my childhood. Then I met Winnie for the second time when my son was little. Now, it’s the time for our third meeting – I’m reading the book to my grandchildren. What a timeless story!
