WINNIE-THE-POOH - A. A. Milne, 1926

I sat in the summer house and soaked it up. I was not expecting any surprises but I soon realised that what I had memorised were the stories themselves and not the language. "The Sun was still in bed, but there was a lightness in the sky over the Hundred Acre Wood which seemed to show that it was waking up and would soon be kicking off the clothes" captured my imagination all over again. And the E. H. Shephard illustrations knock spots off Disney.
