Winnie the Pooh
A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. This lovely new edition includes the unforgettable endpapers (the map of Pooh's environs, including the "100 Aker Wood") and all the beloved, colored line drawings by Ernest H. Shepard. This is the pre-Disney Pooh in his original, authentic glory. It averages a picture per page, sustaining visual interest even as the familiar, light-hearted adventures stream by. There is no better way to ensure the present generation does not miss out on the likes of woozles, heffalumps, Piglet's rescue, Eeyore's birthday, and my favorite: "a wedged bear in great tightness."
