A borrowed book? It has to be from the library. Now I don’t currently have any books out from the library, but I do have a book from the 90’s which I never returned because I lost it. Don’t worry, I paid my fine. And then, a few years ago a funny thing happened and I found the book behind a book case.
What is this book I hear you ask? Why, it’s Winnie the Pooh. I must have subconsciously lost the book on purpose as a child because I adore Winnie the Pooh and everything he stands for. I believe some of the greatest philosophical though can be found in a book by A A Milne. If only we could live our lives by the way of Pooh and Piglet.
The illustrations are as much a part of the book as the story itself. The scratchy sketches of Christopher Robin and his friends are carefree and joyous – a testament to the adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Because of course, he was just a silly old pooh bear, but he was our silly old pooh bear and brought a lot of smiles to a lot of faces, old and young.
