Children's LiteratureAll of the beloved Winnie the Pooh characters such as Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eyeore, and Tigger play a role in this book. However, baby Roo is the main character in the story. The residents of the Hundred Acre Woods decide to look for a scary heffalump who left tracks in the woods. When they leave for their hunt, Roo is left behind because he is too small. Roo decides to set out on his own to find the heffalump. Roo captures the heffalump and discovers that they are very friendly and playful creatures. Roo learns that his hefflump is named Lumpy. Roo and Lumpy spend the day playing games and having fun. When Roo decides to take the creature back to the Hundred Acre Woods to find his mother, Tigger, Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit tie ropes around the frightened heffalump. In the end, Roo's mother and friends learn that the heffalump is not a scary monster, but a caring, gentle animal. This is a sweet story that subtly teaches the lesson about not being quick to judge someone before you know him. 2005, Random House Children's Books, Ages 3 to 7.
