Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is a lovely day, just the sort to encourage an adventure outside. Christopher Robin tells Pooh that they are going to go on an expedition. Pooh doesn't know what that means and keeps referring to it as an "expotition," but he is game and dutifully goes and tells the rest of the gang that they need to gather up some provisions and get ready for the big adventure. Christopher Robin has decided that they are going to find the North Pole. After the usual confusion and a mini adventure with Robin having fallen in the pond and rescued by Pooh, it turns out that Pooh has found and used a pole. Christopher Robin decides that this must indeed be the famous North Pole and he puts a sign on it. All head home to recuperate after this exciting outdoor expedition. A pleasant story with a bit of tension and humor that will particularly appeal to kids familiar with the characters and original stories. For those who may be new to Winnie the Pooh and his friends, this may whet appetites for more tales. A Level 2 book for grades K-2 in the "Puffin Easy-To-Read" series. 2003, Dutton/Penguin Putnam, Ages 5 to 8.
