Ok, tongue in cheek, but it did lead me to a fun discussion with some friends - if you had to, how would you rank the characters in your esteem?
It was hard. I love them all. But I do not love them all equally. From first to last, here is the order I came up with (which might change tomorrow, but would always have the same two at the top):
Eeyore, Pooh, Roo, Piglet, Tigger, Owl, Kanga, Rabbit, Christopher Robin
Take your time over a decision as important as this. And if you've not read the books yet, or - Heaven forfend - have only watched the Disney adaptations, then familiarise yourself with A.A. Milne's words and E.H. Shepard's perfect illustrations. Unless you are experiencing Thomas's temporary glitch, then you'll love them all.
