Review: Winnie-the-Pooh: Gloom & Doom for Pessimists - A.A. Milne & E.H. Shepard

Piglet explained to Tigger that he mustn’t mind what Eeyore said because he was always gloomy; and Eeyore explained to Piglet that, on the contrary, he was feeling particularly cheerful this morning.

Eeyore is one of Winnie-the-Pooh’s most deep-thinking friends and his thoughts usually turn to the gloomy side of things. If you have a similarly cynical friend or relation, or indeed if you, yourself, view life as a glass half empty, then this collection of pessimistic contemplations is just for you. 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: Gloom & Doom for Pessimists gives Eeyore his turn in the spotlight but that doesn't stop our gloomy friend from always looking at the negatives. 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:
