Publisher's Synopsis
Tigger finds his way to the Hundred Acre Wood, and Pooh and his friends meet the bounciest creature they've ever seen. He can climb trees (but not down), and sometimes his bounce lands gloomy donkeys in the water. Will the others succeed in unbouncing him?

Ten adventures of Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, Owl and other friends of Christopher Robin.

"On this day in 1928 Dorothy Parker, under her pen name, Constant Reader, reviewed A. A. Milne's The House at Pooh Corner in the New Yorker, with predictable results. The first Winnie-the-Pooh episode had appeared on Christmas Eve of 1925 in the Evening News, and was radio broadcast throughout Britain on Christmas Day. Over the next three years, Milne's children's books - When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh, Now We Are Six - had dominated the best seller lists.

Parker had panned Now We Are Six the previous year, even while acknowledging that 'to speak against Mr. Milne puts one immediately in the ranks of those who set fire to orphanages.' The House at Pooh Corner proved to be one pot of honey too many, especially when Pooh revealed that he added the 'tiddely pom' to his Outdoor Song 'to make it more hummy': And it is that word 'hummy,' my darlings, that marks the first place in The House at Pooh Corner at which Tonstant Weader fwowed up."        ~Today in Literature, October 20, 1928
