The interactions of the characters - and the central role of Pooh, a "Bear of Very Little Brain"--Are thoroughly analyzed, and Connolly looks at how the thematic structures of Milne's two poetry collections for children - When We Were Very Young (1924) and Now We Are Six (1927) - are echoed in the two storybooks. Connolly also addresses the widespread commercialization and appropriation of Milne's characters, looking particularly at the Disney film and television versions of the stories and pointing out the distortions of Milne's characters as they have been adapted by the current culture. This comprehensive and insightful survey of Milne's masterworks also includes a helpful guide to teaching the stories, suggesting discussion topics and performance procedures that will allow students to understand the original dimensions of Milne's Forest world.
