Pooh before Disney

Pooh_and_piglet

Hard to imagine now, but there was a guileless Bear of little Brain but quite a lot of Charm, before the folks at Disney got a hold of him. Indeed, he was a poet of some skill, conscious of the precariousness of the poetic endeavour:

Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.

Thanks to the British publisher Egmont for putting out some faithful copies of the first Pooh books A. A. Milne put out in the 1920’s.
