「クマのプーさん」の続編。
今回は登場人物たちのキャラクタがよりはっきりして
人間味?あふれる話が繰り広げられます。

イーヨーの出番が結構多くて、作者の身近にこんな
タイプがいたのかなぁ、って想像してしまいました。

ピグレットやウサギもどこかにいそうなタイプ。

ウサギがTiggerにいじわるしようと画策するところ、政治だわー。

自分にも身に覚えがあって苦笑してしまう性格の仲間たちのなかで、
プーさんだけが悠然としているのがタオのプーさんの所以ですね。

そしてなんといってもラストシーンが切ないです。

英語は平易なのに流れるような文章で、読んでいて心地いいです。
イラストも素敵♪

辞書に出てこない、間違ったり作られたりした単語もあちこちに
ちりばめられていて可笑しみを生んでいます。

I could spend a happy morning
Seeing Roo,
I could spend a happy morning
Being Pooh.
For it doesn’t seem to matter,
If I don’t get any fatter
(And I don’t get any fatter),
What I do.

He would suddenly know everything that there was to be known,

‘Pooh!’ he whispered.
‘Yes, Piglet?’
‘Nothing,’ said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw. ‘I just wanted to be sure of you.’
No. 1236

‘Rabbit’s clever,’ said Pooh thoughtfully.
‘Yes,’ said Piglet, ‘Rabbit’s clever.’
‘And he has Brain.’
‘Yes,’ said Piglet, ‘Rabbit has Brain.’
There was a long silence.
‘I suppose,’ said Pooh, ‘that that’s why he never understands anything.’

Poetry and Hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.’

  ‘What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?’
  ‘Well,’ said Pooh, ‘what I like best –‘ and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. And then he thought that being with Christopher Robin was a very good thing to do, and having Piglet near was a very friendly thing to have; and so, when he had thought it all out, he said, ‘What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying “What about a little something?” and Me saying, “Well, I shouldn’t mind a little something, should you, Piglet,” and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing.’
  ‘I like that too,’ said Christopher Robin, ‘but what I like doing best is Nothing.’
  ‘How do you do Nothing?’ asked Pooh, after he had wondered for a long time.
  ‘Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, “What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?” and you say “Oh, nothing,” and then you go and do it.”
  ‘Oh, I see,’ said Pooh.
  “This is a nothing sort of thing that we’re doing now.’
  ‘Oh, I see,’ said Pooh again.
  ‘It means just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.’
  ‘Oh!’ said Pooh.
No. 1722
