The World of Pooh by A.A. Milne

The World of Pooh by A. A. Milne: This thick volume contains both Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and contains pretty much all of the most famous stories. I’d been meaning to read this since my exposure to these tales had been limited to Disney’s interpretation. Most of the characters were more or less the way I’d imagined, with the exception of Eeyore. In the book he’s less mopey and gloomy than sarcastic and self-centered. To be honest, I think I like this snarky Eeyore better. The stories as a whole were fairly enjoyable, though the sad endings of each book (with a separate story just to say goodbye) got a little tiresome. Growing up really isn’t this big horrible thing. Believe it or not, you are allowed to have an imagination as an adult. That said, I do understand why these tales are so beloved. They are charming and undeniably memorable.
