The House at Pooh Corner - A. A. Milne
Reading Challenge Category: Part of the complete Collection of Winnie the Pooh, a ‘book’ from the bucket list challenge
'One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet's house to see what Piglet was doing.' This is the second classic children’s story by A.A. Milne about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. In this volume Pooh meets the irrepressible Tigger for the first time, learns to play Poohsticks and sets a trap for a Heffalump.
All the way through the first book, I kept thinking “where’s Tigger?” Well, I never knew he didn’t appear until the second book, so it was a pleasant surprise when he bounced in. I think Tigger has always been my favourite, although it should be Piglet as he’s pink! I recognised some of the stories in this book, like Pooh sticks, where they throw sticks off a bridge and run to the other side to see whose wins! I’d gotten in the frame of mind a little more with this book than I did with the first and enjoyed it a little more.
