Winnie the Pooh is a book that Alan Alexander Milne wrote for his son Christoper Robin and the characters that the reader encounters in the book are toys from his sons room. He was observing how his son made his toys come to life by giving them a personality and came up with the idea of creating heroes that will be enjoyed by million kids worldwide.
Christopher Robin had a swan named Pooh but since the swan was gone away he gave that name to a teddy bear. That is how bear Winnie the Pooh came to life. While the author was writing this book some characters were inside of his sons room and some of them are made up.
The first adventure of Winnie the Pooh is finding honey. He was hungry so he decided to fool the bees and steal their honey. He came to the idea of pretending to be a clown. He took a balloon and decided to fly with it. The bees got suspicious about the cloud so they started to fly around their honey trying to protect it. Pooh realized that he won’t be able to steal the honey so he came back down to the ground.
There was a little problem because the balloon he was flying with wouldn’t let him come down. Christopher Robin came to his rescue. He took his gun and shot the balloon. Pooh landed to the ground but he was so afraid that he was still holding the rope of the balloon.
In the next chapter Pooh went to visit his friend the Rabbit. He offered his food so Pooh got full on honey and butter. When he wanted to go home he couldn’t get out of the rabbits hole. He had to diet for a week to be able to go out. Also Piglet decided to join them.
Pooh decided to go hunting with his friend Piglet. Piglet was cleaning the snow around his hose. He saw Pooh following some footprints in the snow so he asked him who was he chasing. Bear Pooh thought that he was actually hunting something but in reality he was only following his prints in the snow.
In the fourth chapter Winnie tries to help his friend the donkey Eeyore. He lost his tail a while ago so they decided to look for it. They came to an owl and asked for help but then they realized that she was carring his tail as a new bell leash. Christopher Robin used a nail to pin the tail back onto the donkey.
Eeyore was celebrating his birthday so Piglet and Pooh were carrying their presents. Piglets balloon was punctured and Pooh ate all of the honey he was planning to give to Eeyore.
Mother Kang and her son Roo appear in the woods. The animals get confused by their presence and don’t know what to do so they decide to kidnap the son and return it to the mother when she promises to leave the forest.
The forest crew did it but Kanga wasn’t afraid for the faith of her son because she knew that Christopher Robins wouldn’t let his son get hurt. Piglet took her sons place by jumping into KAngas pouch. She decided to joke around with him for a little bit so she gave him a bath every night but in cold water. In the end Kanga and Roo became friends with the animals and stayed in the forest.
Christopher Robin decided to organize and expedition to the North Pole. Everyone set off to North Pole but nobody actually knew where it was. They thought that it was a pole stuck in the ground. On the was Roo fell into the river. The others saved him with a pole that represented their North Pole. Christopher declared the expedition successful because they’ve found the North Pole. The sticked a sign into the ground that said ‘’North Pole – discovered by Winnie the Pooh – found by Winnie the Pooh.
Suddenly it started to rain so hard that Pooh woke up with his feet in the water. He took all of his jars of honey up onto the tree and a few days after he got a note from the Piglet. He was asking for help. Pooh wasn’t a very good swimmer so he decided to make a boat. He sailed to an island where Christopher Robin lived and gave him the note.
Thanks to Poohs imagination they sailed to Piglet that was in an upside-down umbrella and they saved him from drowning. There was a big party organized for Pooh because he discovered the North Pole and saved Piglet. Pooh made a poem for himself and got a pencil case full of supplies. At the end the storyteller appears and says that Pooh is just a stuffed animal that belongs to Christopher Robin for whom this story was written.
