Synopsis: In the Forest of A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928), we never see any "Hostile Animals" as one the size of a piglet might fear, but instead we see a community of toy animals - Pooh Bear, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and Tigger - who accompany their friend. Christopher Robin on his "expeditions."

The 10 stories in each book function well as separate bedtime stories, but they are held together as sets not only through the same Forest world that they inhabit and the same characters who live there but also through the similarity of themes. Connolly notes that whereas the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh show a world of parties and adventuring, those of The House at Pooh Corner are a bit more sober: when the animals join together to say goodbye to Christopher Robin at the end of the book, the farewell is more muted than jubilant. The imminent departure of the child who had been seen asthe Forest's protector fundamentally reshapes the vision of the Forest as an unchanging Arcadia: such new concerns are apparent, for example, in the several incidents in which homes and characters are lost, sought after, and recovered. The interactions of the characters - and the
