Review: Winnie-the-Pooh: Deep Thoughts & Ponderings for the Wise - A.A. Milne & E.H. Shepard

'Pooh hasn't much Brain, but he never comes to any harm. He does silly things and they turn out right. There's Owl. Owl hasn't exactly got Brain, but he Knows Things.'

Winnie-the-Pooh may be a Bear of Very Little Brain, but he sometimes has surprisingly astute and helpful observations on life. Full of thingish thoughts and clever plans, this is the perfect gift for deep thinkers and the philosophically inclined. It is part of a brand-new range of Winnie-the-Pooh gift books for adults - a beautifully presented range of four books to collect and enjoy!

Now We Are Grown Up Winnie-the-Pooh gift book series:
Winnie-the-Pooh: Little Somethings & Smackerels for Food Lovers
Winnie-the-Pooh: Deep Thoughts & Ponderings for the Wise
Winnie-the-Pooh: Doubt & Disquiet for Worriers
Winnie-the-Pooh: Gloom & Doom for Pessimists

Review:
There's something very special about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends which is why these characters are still so popular nearly 100 years after the first story about them was published. I grew up reading the books, also having them read to me long before I was able to read them myself, so I'll always have a soft spot for them all and they always put a smile on my face. Thats why I was so excited to discover Egmont have created the Now We Are Grown Up collection of Winnie-the-Pooh quote books aimed at adults. These are gorgeous little hardbacks that are perfect for dipping in and out of and each one includes fabulous quotes from the stories by A.A. Milne along with E.H. Shepard's gorgeous original illustrations.

Each book collects quotes related to a different mood or feeling and as I'm sure you can guess Winnie-the-Pooh: Deep Thoughts & Ponderings for the Wise shares some of our favourite Bear of Very Little Brain's wisest musings, along with insightful comments from many of his friends. There are so many fabulous quotes but I've included a couple of my favourites just to give you an idea what you can expect:
