Dear Reader,


What did you do on Saturday night? We had a “toilet
malfunction” and a four-room flood, followed by a
crew of two guys moving our furniture, ripping out
our carpet, and installing huge blow dryers.

The climax of the adventure was at 1 AM when we (two
grownups, two kids, two dogs, two cats) had to
vacate our house for thirty minutes while they
sprayed disinfectant into our rooms.

Don’t miss Chapter 2 where we learn whether or not
our lathe and plaster walls contain absestos!

Espresso Fiction *Innovative Fiction*

Fiction

*FREE sample story. Relive a bad date: “Wheels” by Ruth
Baxter. “When the guy you like more than anyone ends the
evening being pushed home in a grocery cart by a second-
string basketball player, it’s probably not a good omen
for the relationship. Even if the guys let you trot along
behind.”

See ya on the Net,

(Teach your kids how to make games just
like these with my step-by-step manual. )

A children’s book character that endures seventy-seven years must be something special; and Winnie-the-Pooh certainly is. A.A. Milne actually only published two books based on Winnie and his beloved friends, but they have since been featured in dozens of movies, videos, easy-reader books, and even have their own attractions at Disneyland and Disney World. Here’s where you can find the hundred-acre- woods gang online.



75 Years of Pooh

http://www.penguinputnam.com/static/packages/us/yreaders/pooh75/

*****


Pooh’s publishers created this thoughtful and delightful site a few years ago in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication of Winnie- the-Pooh in 1926. There are interactive games, Pooh recipes, and audio samples of Charles Kuralt reading from two Pooh books. But the best clicks are the Pooh Party package (seventeen printable pages including invitations and party games) and the chapter-by-chapter Winnie-the-Pooh Classroom Activities.



Just Pooh

http://www.just-pooh.com/

*****


At first glance, Justin Valentin’s wordy fan site may look like it’s only for “older” Pooh afficionados, but younger fans need only click on Fun to find what they’re looking for. Treats to be discovered include a fabulous Shockwave Honey Tree game, Pooh e-cards to send to friends and family, and a comprehensive twenty-five question quiz. Other noteworthy sections are History of Pooh, book excerpts (Stories), and a character guide (100 Acre Woods.)



The Page at Pooh Corner

http://www.pooh-corner.org/

*****


James Milne’s Page at Pooh Corner is an excellent resource for those wanting to learn more about the books’ origins. It contains biographies of author A.A. Milne, illustrator E.H. Shepard, and the real-life Christopher Robin (the author’s son.) It also has photos of the original stuffed animals that served as inspiration for the world famous stories. Is webmaster Milne related to the author? “As far as my family can tell, we’re not related … Still, it’s fun having the same last name!”
