Description

Return to the Hundred Acre Wood Visit our all-new Pooh website!

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.

From the Hardcover edition.

    The delightful stories found in A.A. Milne's two "Winne-the-Pooh" books are bedtime staples at my house. I read them aloud to my son quite often, with frequent repeat visits to our favorite chapters. With this in mind, I decided to give the newer incarnation by David Benedictus a try. Tonight, reading just the first chapter, I stumbled upon more typos than I can count. This is inexcusable for any book, let alone a book of this calibre from a major publisher. Not only that, but the powers that be have had nearly five years to correct these glaring errors, but they haven't done so. These gaffes make reading the books aloud an odious task, as I must correct the typos on-the-fly. It makes me sound like Bob Newhart. I'm disappointed that I spent $10 for this book. It's obvious that either the publisher or Apple (or both) care little about the quality of this product.
  • Not that good

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

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