WinnieThePooh
A copy of the first edition

Winnie-the-Pooh is the first volume of stories about Winnie-the-Pooh,
by A. A. Milne. It is followed by The House at Pooh Corner. The book
focuses on the adventures of a teddy bear called Winnie-the-Pooh
and his friends Piglet, a small toy pig; Eeyore, a toy donkey; Owl, a
live owl; and Rabbit, a live rabbit. The characters of Kanga, a toy
kangaroo, and her son Roo are introduced later in the book, in the
chapter entitled "In Which Kanga and Baby Roo Come to the Forest
and Piglet has a Bath." The bouncy toy-tiger character of Tigger is
not introduced until the sequel, The House at Pooh Corner. Portions
of Winnie-the-Pooh were adapted from previously published magazine
stories.
