Why this book?
Most people know Winnie the Pooh from cartoon adaptations, but those have never done justice to the original stories. Milne’s characters are incredibly funny and human, putting themselves in ridiculous situations and attempting to solve problems with even more ridiculous solutions, all with the seemingly nonsensical logic of a toddler. While kids may enjoy Pooh’s antics for their sheer silliness, adults will appreciate the subtle commentary on grown-up foibles and love the deep heart with which Pooh navigates the world.
