Description

It was eighty years ago, on the publication of The House at Pooh Corner, when Christopher Robin said good-bye to Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now they are all back in new adventures, for the first time approved by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties. This is a companion volume that truly captures the style of A. A. Milne-a worthy sequel to The House at Pooh Corner and Winnie-the-Pooh.

Listen to award-winning narrator Jim Dale reading the Exposition to Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. Also available from Penguin Audio.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 19, 2009 – Christopher Robin returns from boarding school (80 years later) in this authorized but largely forgettable third volume of stories about Pooh, Piglet and the denizens of Milne's famous forest. Missing is the charm of the first book, mediated by an adult narrator creating a tableau for his child's imaginative play with a coterie of stuffed friends. Like the first books, there are 10 stories, but they are aged up to reflect Christopher's new interests—the play here involves a spelling bee, cricket, the creation of a school, the use of a thesaurus, atlas, dictionary, etc. A new character, Lottie the Otter, joins Rabbit and Owl to make a trio of the sanctimonious. Even saintly Kanga—Kanga!—loses her patience with Roo. There are a few inspired moments, including Rabbit's ill-conceived plan to lure his Friends and Relations to participate in a census using carrots and shortbread. (Rabbit also gets the best line: “Happy may be all very well, Eeyore, but it doesn't butter any parsnips.”) Burgess's illustrations are serviceable and resemble the originals, but, again, topping Shepard's originals proves a tough act to follow. All ages.

Terrible editing

So far, it's a great book. But the quality control on this digital edition is inexcusable.

The book is rife with typographical errors, on almost every page. Illustrations occur in the wrong places in the text. Words run together, punctuation is dropped. It's like the whole book was slapped into a scanner and then sold as an iBook without a human being ever having checked it.

I paid ten dollars for this thing. Yet it reads like something Someone pirated off the Internet.

I know Apple is rushing into this digital publishing game, but they need to up their quality control.

Good

This isn't written by AA Mille but keeps the flow still has a few clear out of style parts.

Not that good

I agree with genervas dad.
It's too pricey and looks like you copied it off the internet.
