THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER
"What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?"
This is the second book of short stories about Christopher Robin's forest friends, including the Hundred Acre Wood's newest resident, Tigger. Here we learn that the "house" of the title is Eeyore's, which is (re)built by Piglet and Pooh; that Tigger does not like honey; and that while young Christopher Robin must go off to boarding school, the enchanted place of Pooh and his friends will always be waiting for him. The last of the four books in the Pooh series, it is quite scarce and highly sought in this deluxe issue, especially in such fine condition and in the original box.
