Summary

Summary

A. A. Milne's texts have been skillfully adapted by veteran Easy Reader author Stephen Krensky, so they retain all of their original charm. And every spread of these inviting books features full-color Ernest Shepard illustrations. In Tigger Comes to the Forest, Pooh tries to help Tigger figure out what Tiggers like for breakfast . . . with a very surprising result!


Author Notes

A prolific writer, A. A. Milne published 35 plays, 6 novels, 3 books of verse, 3 collections of short stories, and several works of nonfiction, including sketches for Punch magazine, of which he was the assistant editor. Nevertheless, his fame rests on four books for children: two of whimsical stories about the stuffed animals in his son's bedroom (Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner) and two of verse (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). All are considered classics and have been included among the Children's Literature Association's Touchstone books as the best in children's literature, on the Lewis Carroll Shelf list, and on the Choice magazine list of books for the academic library.

He also wrote Toad of Toad Hall, a play based on Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, and Once upon a Time: A Fairy Tale for Grown-ups, both of which are sometimes included in volumes with the four classic works.

Milne had a son, Christopher Robin, who served as the model for the little boy in his children's books.

Booklist Review

K^-Gr. 2. Each book in the Winnie-the-Pooh Easy Reader series features one chapter from Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh or The House at Pooh Corner. The chapter is shortened, divided into four small sections, and formatted for beginning readers. In Pooh Goes Visiting, Pooh enjoys a repast in Rabbit's hole, but he becomes stuck in the doorway on his way out. In Tigger Comes to the Forest, Pooh discovers Tigger on his doorstep and takes him out to meet the other residents of the Hundred Acre Wood and find something that he likes for breakfast. Krensky does a good and sensitive job of gently adapting the language for beginning readers. He simplifies sentence structures and leaves out some phrases, while sticking to the essentials. Although some of the humor and cadence of Milne's original prose is lost, the simplified texts are better than might be expected. An ink-and-watercolor picture by Shepard, pulled from the original books, appears on nearly every page. --Carolyn Phelan
