Five top toy stories

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books featuring toys:
by A. A. Milne

Let's journey together again to The Hundred-Acre Wood and revel in the adventures of the bear "of very little brain," a very gentle soul, and a band of unforgettable friends. No family should miss the joy of reading aloud Milne’s delightful scenes, which are subtly unfused with sly humor and wordplay. Age 5 and up.
Read about the other books on the list.

AA Milne and EH Shepard made Chris Riddell's top ten list of author/illustrator double acts. When We Were Very Young by A. A. Milne is on Glen Roven's list of seven poetry books to ignite your imagination. Milne's The House at Pooh Corner is a book to which Jonathan Kozol will always return; and Winnie-the-Pooh is a book Walter Mosley hopes parents would read to their children.
