This is one of the best books I've ever read! The writing is clever and funny, and the stories endearing. Simple but sweet, these stories are pure gold. Every child should be introduced to the animals in the hundred acre wood! I'm not a fan of the Disney Pooh, although the 2011 movie was fantastic for capturing the spirit of these books. Lots of kids see the Disney videos but never read these stories, and they are missing out! I've been reading this book to my five-year-old sister, and in her words, "This is the bestest book that anybody ever wrote."
