‘Winnie-The-Pooh 80th Anniversary Edition’ by A A Milne

(Egmont $29.99)I loved Pooh Bear so much, I was him in a school play. It doesn’t pay to be well built at an all-girl school, let me tell you – I also played Fred Dagg and John Travolta. But no-one ever asked me to re-enact my rousing renditions of If It Weren’t For Your Gumboots or Summer Lovin’ the way they begged me to repeat The More It Snows (Tiddly-Pom).

That particular poem isn’t included in this special edition but this book is an absolute must for Pooh fans: a brilliantly priced hardcover selection of stories about our favourite bear-of-very-little-brain, with gorgeous original illustrations.

PS. Actually, no-one ever really asked me to repeat The More It Snows (Tiddly-Pom).
