I discovered Pooh Bear when I should have been studying for exams, drawn into a world of heffalumps,woozles, hunnypots and hums. Evenings of alcohol-fuelled discussions at University with like minded people we discovered the truth behind the stories. These weren't just tales told by a father to his son but an indepth study of human nature and character types. Take Pooh Bear himself, A bear of little brain yet totally dependable on in a crisis. Practical sort of chap even if the plans don't quite go to plan every time. Freud would have been impressed as here was a bear with a healthy oral fixation Then there's Eeyore. He's the depressive one, never happy with his lot and always has something to complain about. Yet he remains incredibly endearing to his friends despite his eloquent use of irony. Tigger... bouncy, yet unsure of what Tiggers eat, suggesting that behind the mask of extrovertism lies an insecure Tigger. Everyone knows a Kanga. The solitary female character in the books. She is the maternal type, nurturing her own child and looking after everyone's interests but her own. A true carer. Read the books for yourself, find out who Piglet really is, how wise is Owl really and enjoy!!!!
