Winnie The Pooh - A. A. Milne

Winnie the pooh

Reading Challenge Category: A book originally intended for children

Official Blurb:

'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'
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.

My Thoughts:

I don’t remember why I loved Winnie The Pooh when I was at university, but I had posters all over the walls so it must have come from somewhere…
As I was reading this (and the second book) I vaguely remember the stories so I must have read them when I was younger, I just don’t remember doing so.
Whilst reading it, though, I didn’t feel like it should be read by adults as it is very much a children’s book and I felt too old to be reading such simplicity. Seeing the pictures, however, took me straight back to those university walls. I hadn’t realised they were straight out of the book. I thought they must have been more modern versions or interpretations! So, that was quite nice to see them in their natural habitat!
The stories were well-written, fun and light-hearted but I think I was expecting just a little more magic with it being such a massive classic.
