The House at Pooh Corner is the second volume of stories about Winnie the Pooh, written by A.A. Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shepard. I loved this book as a child and so did my daughter Nicola. I used it as a party theme for a birthday party in Queenstown when she was a little girl. The title of the book comes from a story in which Winnie the Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore the donkey. The game of Poohsticks is also invented. There are hints running throughout the book that Christopher Robin is growing up and this comes to a head in the last chapter wherein the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood give him a farewell party after learning that he must leave them for good. Pooh and Christopher Robin say a long, private farewell, in which Pooh promises never to forget him. Australian singer, Josh Pyke, has even written a song about this classic.
