ASIN B000B620YW - It's hard for Winnie the Pooh books to not make the top of my list, but this one is too old-fashioned to be there. The illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard appear to be original from the copyright date of 1926. By the publication date of 1995, Pooh and his friends had a new, more cartoon-quality look and this book would have benefited from an update there.
Pooh meets Eeyore as the two are out and about and Pooh notices immediately that Eeyore's tail is missing. He offers to help his friend and seeks out Owl to get advice. Owl suggests a sign, offering a reward. Christopher Robinson, he says, is the one to write it. When he shows Pooh the signs outside his own front door, Pooh notices Owl's unusual bell-rope. It's Eeyore's tail! He takes it back to Eeyore and Christopher Robin reattaches it, much to Eeyore's delight.
The sturdy board book pages are a plus, as is the very simple, basic text. It has made me laugh my entire life, to read "Christopher Robin nailed it in its right place again." - certainly a funny reminder that Pooh and friends are stuffed animals. The text is minimal, making this a good book for beginning readers. I love Winnie the Pooh, but I'm not a fan of the illustrations in this one.
