"IN THAT ENCHANTED
PLACE ON THE TOP OF THE FOREST,
A LITTLE BOY AND HIS BEAR WILL ALWAYS BE PLAYING"
The House at Pooh Corner
do you like best in the world, Pooh?"
"Well," said Pooh... "What I like best in the whole world is Me and
Piglet going to see You, and You saying 'What about a little something?'
and Me saying, 'Well, I shouldn't mind a little something, should you
Piglet,' and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing."
FIRST EDITION of A.A. Milne's second collection of
stories about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends at Hundred Acre Wood.
Notable, in particular, for the introduction of Tigger, the invention of
Poohsticks, and the poignant farewell to Christopher Robin as he
prepares (it is presumed) to enter the adult world.
Delightfully illustrated throughout by Ernest Shepard.
