"From BBC Radio 4 Extra:
1/5: In which the bear goes visiting and gets into a tight place.

2/5: In which the bear and Piglet nearly catch a Woozle, and Eeyore loses a tail.

3/5: In which Piglet meets a Heffalump.

4/5: In which Christopher Robin leads an 'expotition' to the North Pole.

5/5: In which Eeyore has a birthday and gets two presents.

Alan Bennett begins reading the first of five parts of AA Milne's tale of the much-loved bear.

Winnie-the-Pooh has given delight to generations of children and adults. The book was first published on 14th October 1926, though the bear 'of very little brain' had previously featured in a poem and a tale in a newspaper. His success has long continued through theatre, TV and film.

The honey-loving hero is styled on the teddy bear of the author's son and his co-stars, like Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, are based on the rest of Christopher Robin Milne's own soft toys.

Adapted and produced by Colin Smith

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1984.

"okay, so recently I've had a problem with children's books. Children specifically not even teen. They seemed too simple, and even if well plotted poorly written. I was at a basic point where I was willing to assume I had been wrong and no children's book was actually all that good.

and then I had a really bad day. customers were jerks and ten minutes after the store opened I was already being complained about. Karen was gone no one was really on the floor for much of the midday. We are talking some level of melt down disaster (HI KAREN!!). but that isn't really all. I haven't been sleeping much I have tons of work for school and I'm feeling a bit generally like a failure at the moment. how does this lead to reading winnie the pooh? it just does.

Things I've learned from this book: winnie the pooh's real name is edward the bear. Christopher robin is AA milne's son. Roo falls down mouse holes.

This is not only an adorable childrens book it is actually extremely well written. I loved it. The songs are cute and even the illogic has a very nice place. I really think the writing is very similar to lewis carroll in tone. IT really feels like the story of a child not just a story someone is trying to hard to get a child to like.

" When I was a kid, my older sister had a version of "winne the pooh" with lots of beautiful illustrations but she don’t let me to turn the pages of it. However I exactly remember all of those images of pooh, rabbit, baby Roo and Christopher robin. All of those characters had many amazing adventures in the book and just a honey jar made pooh happy. I think that "winne the pooh" says to its readers of any ages: live and enjoy! " said.

"I don't know how I managed to get through all of childhood (not to mention a few decades of adulthood) without ever having read Winnie-the-Pooh, but there it is.

And I had feared it was too late for me now, that the charms of Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin et al. would elude my middle-aged eyes, their adventures too childish to be appreciated by a mind battered and hardened by harsh reality. Oh, how wrong I was.

It's wonderful.

Glorious.

A jewel.

Winnie-the-Pooh captured my heart from the first page and never let go. A.A. Milne's prose is so charming and witty, his characters so peculiar and funny, their stories so simple and perfect, that I found myself laughing out loud, quoting at length to my wife, and feeling just a little bit sad when I reached the end and had to come back to the real world. The illustrations by Ernest Shepard are beautiful accompaniment to Milne's stories, delightful and adorable (I am especially fond of the way he drew Piglet, probably my favorite character).

If you have never introduced yourself to Pooh, or your only exposure has been through cartoons and toys, do yourself a favor and read it now, no matter your age. I know I will return to Milne's little fantasy world again and again.

You never can tell with classics.

"Why are there so many cynical and satirical reviews of Winnie-the-Pooh, aka the life and times of Edward Bear, on Goodreads? What's wrong with people? Who could not love this bear and all his friends? When I was young, I adored this book - and the lovely illustrations ("decorations by Ernest H. Shepard"). I wonder if my love had to do with a fascination with all things British (thanks Mary Norton, Frances Hodgson Burnett, umbrellas, gorse bushes, and tea time). Such a complicated narrative too, with Milne reading to both Christopher Robin and the reader.

Even sad, permanently depressed Eeyore is very, very funny. We all know someone like him, (maybe ourselves). When Eeyore's tail goes missing, Pooh offers to go find it. "'Thank you, Pooh,' answered Eeyore. 'You're a real friend,' said he. 'Not like Some,' he said.'" For whatever reason, I find this hilarious. I love it that "Some" is capitalized. I may co-opt that phrase.

My favorite part is Chapter Three "IN WHICH Pooh and Piglet Go Hunting and Nearly Catch a Woozle." Piglet gets excited after they spot tracks in the snow and the two ponder the possibility of a Woozle. More tracks are added - perhaps there are three, no, four Woozles? - but Piglet and Pooh are circling a "spinney of larch trees" and making the tracks themselves. Christopher Robin calls him a "Silly old Bear," and tells Pooh what he'd done.

"I see now," said Winnie-the-Pooh.
"I have been Foolish and Deluded," said he, "and I am a Bear of No Brain at All."
"You're the Best Bear in All the World," said Christopher Robin soothingly.
"Am I?" said Pooh hopefully. And then he brightened up suddenly.
"Anyhow," he said, "It is nearly Luncheon Time."
So he went home for it.


Of course, part of the secret to enjoying life is to accept compliments about your greatness while disregarding the anxiety about your deficiencies. This is why Pooh is not stressed out. I also like that there's a complete disregard for specie-specific habitat. Nobody ever cares that there's a kangaroo (two, actually), a tiger, a bear, a rabbit, a donkey, and an owl, hanging out together and having "Expotition"s." Things Happen, and the absurd is accepted:

"Hallo Rabbit," he said, "is that you?"
"Let's pretend it isn't," said Rabbit, "and see what happens."
"I've got a message for you."
"I'll give it to him."


This is a book I wish more kids would read, a quietly magical one that radiates kindness. There's a great line that I'll use to end my Ode to Pooh. When Pooh gets stuck in the front door of Rabbit's house, he must stay there until he loses a little weight. A tear rolls down his poor little bear face and he asks Christopher Robin for a favor: "Then would you read a Sustaining Book, such as would help and comfort a Wedged Bear in Great Tightness?" I can't imagine a better way to get out of a sticky situation. There will always be Hunny later.
