Playing Pooh Sticks is one the National Trust’s 50 Things To Do Before You Are 11 and ¾ – it is game beloved of adults and children alike.
Mark Evan’s charming and funny text guides us through the intricacies of Pooh Sticks – from a brief history of the game (invented, of course, by Pooh Bear himself in The House at Pooh Corner) to strategies that can help avoid a soaking. We find out what the perfect Pooh stick looks like, what the optimum location is and about notable games of Pooh sticks throughout history. The book ends with FAQ About Poohsticks, which Winnie-the-Pooh thinks stands for ‘Food Always Quitenice’
The books features illustrations by E.H. Shepard as well as newly commissioned illustrations by Mark Burgess.
