"Excellent series of books"
Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.
"A man's best friend is a bear called Pooh"
"One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet's house to see what Piglet was doing." Thus begins The House At Pooh Corner, A.A.

Everyone who grows up within a family experiences the need to outgrow parents and teachers, to make a way of life that is his own, and to create his own circle of friends and family—however large or small. As a young man, Christopher Milne found himself seeking his own path through life against a background of two central experiences.
Dunkel und groß war der Bau - alt und verfallen. Der fahle Mondschein leuchtete der Villa direkt auf die Front und färbte die Fassade rot... Blutrot! Der modrige Holzzaun vor der Villa schien sich aus seiner Verankerung zu winden und überhaupt konnte man meinen, das Haus würde in wenigen Momenten in sich zusammenstürzen. Vier Menschen standen davor und wollten das alte Gemäuer betreten. Sie ahnten nicht, welches unheilige Grauen sie erwartete!
