Description: Join Pooh as he invents a new game called Poohsticks. From Eeyore to Piglet, all of your favorite characters join Pooh and play the game. But when everyone throws their sticks over the bridge and they eagerly wait to see whose stick comes out first, they are shocked to see Eeyore in the river. How did Eeyore end up in the river? And can the animals help him?
Personal Review: This early reader is a great adaptation of the Winnie the Pooh stories. Each character is portrayed well from the easy going Pooh to the careless Christopher Robin. The story centers around Pooh inventing a game he calls “Poohsticks” and his friends Piglet and Rabbit join him in the fun. But when they throw their sticks over the side of the bridge and eagerly wait to see who would win, they find Eeyore floating in the river needing help. This book is a Level 2 early reader book designed for kindergarten to 2nd graders. The story is easy to follow and is broken into 4 short chapters. The words and sentences are short and include a lot of sight words. The story is engaging and has characters that the readers can relate to. It shows readers how using your brain will help you in difficult situations.
Citation of two critical sources:
Diane Frook’s Children's Literature review calls this early reader book a gentle and imaginative Pooh tale but formidable for young readers because of the length. I agree that the book a bit long for some beginning readers but the story is easy to follow as it broken into short chapters with accompanying original illustrations.
Kirkus’s reviews mentions how the abridged stories retain their charm and easy going pace. It also mentions how the plot of the story is ostensible and eliminates some cumbersome extra text. This review gives the reader some information about the story and does a good job of explaining some aspects of the game, “Poohsticks.”

Read information about the authorAlan Alexander Milne (pronounced /ˈmɪln/) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems.
A. A. Milne was born in Kilburn, London, to parents Vince Milne and Sarah Marie Milne (née Heginbotham) and grew up at Henley House School, 6/7 Mortimer Road (now Crescent), Kilburn, a small public school run by his father. One of his teachers was H. G. Wells who taught there in 1889–90. Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. While there, he edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine. He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's work came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later an assistant editor.
Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and later, after a debilitating illness, the Royal Corps of Signals. He was discharged on February 14, 1919.
After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour. During World War II, Milne was one of the most prominent critics of English writer P. G. Wodehouse, who was captured at his country home in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse made radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the light-hearted broadcasts made fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge on his former friend by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in some of his later stories, and claiming that Milne "was probably jealous of all other writers.... But I loved his stuff."
He married Dorothy "Daphne" de Sélincourt in 1913, and their only son, Christopher Robin Milne, was born in 1920. In 1925, A. A. Milne bought a country home, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex. During World War II, A. A. Milne was Captain of the Home Guard in Hartfield & Forest Row, insisting on being plain 'Mr. Milne' to the members of his platoon. He retired to the farm after a stroke and brain surgery in 1952 left him an invalid and by August 1953 "he seemed very old and disenchanted".
He was 74 years old when he passed away in 1956.
