Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne

Winnie-the-Pooh emerged as a free book on the Kindle, just as the iBook store came with the book as an example of what it could do. I like free stuff, so I downloaded it, but I had forgotten how much I like Pooh and Piglet.
The writing is a lot more abstract than I remember. I know it’s aimed at kids, but it rambles around and wanders through sentences of nothing-ness and it’s absolutely wonderful. The short little stories could be told in about a page, but not with Pooh Bear around.
My favourite is, and always has been, Piglet though. I didn’t know that he is often referred to as The Piglet. I like that less, although I don’t know why. Therefore, the best story for me is the one where he is trapped by the flood, and rescued by Pooh Bear and Christopher Robin in an upside down umbrella. Lovely stuff.
