Customer Review

on 9 November 2013
This simple & charming book, first published in 1982, ingeniously weaves the principles of Taoism (the way of the universe in ancient Chinese philosophy) with the more humdrum & familiar territory of the tales of Winnie the Pooh & his friends in the Hundred Acre Forest.

This analogy works perfectly, as Taoist philosophy is worked in to the way that Pooh goes about his life, wide-eyed & innocent like a child, but somehow ultimately all the more wise for doing so.
Benjamin Hoff successfully combines text & drawings from the originals A.A. Milne stories with his own conversations with Pooh, & takes us on a journey of discovery as we get to discover our own Pooh-like voice of wisdom.
More was to follow ten years later with the sequel, The Te of Piglet.
