Is there such thing as a Western Taoist? Benjamin Hoff says there is, and this Taoist's favorite food is honey. Through brilliant and witty dialogue with the beloved Pooh-bear and his companions, the author of this smash bestseller explains with ease and aplomb that rather than being a distant and mysterious concept, Taoism is as near and practical to us as our morning breakfast bowl. Romp through the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh while soaking up invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living.About the Author:
Benjamin Hoff is a writer, photographer, musician and composer and a specialist in Japanese fine-pruning, with a degree in Ancient Art. A. A. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, was based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. He produced a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926, the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Through his writings for Punch magazine, A. A. Milne met E. H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.
