Winnie-the-Pooh, The Original Version

This is an exact reproduction of the Original Winnie-the-Pooh published in 1926. Winnie-the-Pooh is perhaps unique in that it is based on real people and historical events. Christopher Robin was a real person. As a child, he had a teddy bear he named “Winnie-the-Pooh”. The bear was named after a real bear in the London Zoo named Winnie. The introductory chapter in the book “Winnie-the-Pooh” explains how the teddy bear got his name. The stories later in the book are fiction, but the beginning introduction to the book is factual. Because this book is about real people and events, this places the book in a different legal position than other children's books with cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck which are purely the inventions of their creators. The real Winnie-the-Pooh is now on display at the New York Public Library.

When I went away to college many years ago, my mother loaned my "Winnie-the-Pooh"—received on my fifth birthday—to a young co-worker to read to her children. It was never returned. I have been mourning ever since! The fact that this book had everything the original had, except the hardback cover, made it irresistible. I bought it! It did not disappoint. I saw the same dear pictures of the same beloved Pooh in the well-remembered interesting situations with his unique take on matters and his same friends and his companion, Christopher Robin. The book now has joined its mate, "The House at Pooh Corner." My bookcase is no longer missing something. Get this book and read it to your children or give it to them to read, as my mother did me. It cannot be replaced by the Disney Pooh. That Pooh is a whole different me. Oh, and lend it to NO ONE. Get them one of their own!

The presentation of this version is lacking, and kids love presentation. It almost feels like a budget version meant for students studying children's lit. I strongly recommend going for the four-book boxed set. It's more expensive but my four-year-old daughter (who received it for Easter) was attracted to it--as an object--which smoothed over the dearth of illustration in this old-fashioned narrative. And I got to enjoy a few bedtimes away from those impossibly inferior Berenstain Bears.

The book is just fantastic, easy to read and reminisce. The quality of the book and the text it's just phenomenal. I love the little illustrations in the book.The look of the cover really gives it an old book feel. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to keep their childhood alive.

I was very happy to find this 'original' version of the classic story for our granddaughter - a very often read and treasured title from my own childhood. My only disappointment is that it is soft cover, very thin (my own 'old' hardback is much 'thicker') and the words are in a pretty small font. Not terribly appealing to young readers. It has, however, the 'original' words and pictures and for that I am grateful to find the book.

This may be an original copy of the book but the reproduction is terrible. It looks like a five year old put this book together it is crooked and it looks like the print was just slapped on, this may be worth $5. I sent it back was very disappointed in the quality of this book.!

These were delivered promptly and are wonderful. From the photos I thought there would be chinese type in them and was hesitant to purchase them because of that. They had no chinese type in them however and that was a pleasant surprise. I purchased them as gifts and am pleased with the quality.

Probably my all-time favorite childhood book, I still own my original copy from the 1960s. It has a splendid, color map of the 100 Acre Wood on the inside covers so children can track where the various tales take place and visualize the world of these characters. It is with delight that I read and re-read these stories as a child, lying in a windowed alcove in my bedroom, imagining their world and myself in it. BTW: I'm a college English teacher now. I never stopped reading. This was the start.

The product fits the description perfectly, but did not fit my intended use. That's my fault. This is a small, paperback replica of the original Winnie the Pooh book. No complaints there.I had purchased it as a book for guests to my son's Pooh party to sign and leave him notes and/or as a photo prop for his Pooh themed pictures. This would not do well for either; it is too small. I ended up purchasing this book for that purpose instead: The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-PoohAs far as this little paperback, I will use it to read to my son. He already loves the cartoon, time to foster his love for the book :) And I don't have to worry about him bending the pages on this one!
