A A Milne was a wonderful writer. His style was really quite simple ... no long words .... just careful use of those words AND of punctuation.  Click on each of the small pictures for some examples of way that he wrote.

Pooh Do you think that the bees would notice Pooh when he tried to steal their honey?
Eeyore Try reading aloud this piece about Pooh Sticks ... pause every time you come to a comma ...
Piglet A 'Blusterous Day' has only one long sentence. What makes this sentence easier to read?
Rabbit But why do you think Pooh was wedged in great tightness?
Wol Why hasn't Pooh got any idea what Owl is talking about?

Pooh Bear was also a GREAT POET. AA Milne called the poems that Pooh knew .. Hums

Click on the picture of AA Milne to read the GREATEST HUMS OF POOH.
Try writing some more verses to the Cottleston Pie hum .....

All you need are more words to rhyme with pie ..

try, sky, cry, dry, fry, sigh, my, shy ......

But you will need some proper POOH paper to write your new verses on.

You can print yourself some out by clicking on the picture of Rabbit below.
