Winnie ille Pu

One of my favourite surprises I got for Christmas was this copy of Winnie the Pooh in Latin, from Mark's mum.

My 2 years of secondary school latin have not really equipped me to understand very much of it, but I can't stop reading it for its endless joyfulness! The joy of Winnie the Pooh is enhanced by the Latin language, I'm sure. Such as in this scene, where Piglet (Porcellus) dreams of the Heffalump (Heffalumpus...of course):

Some parts, however, do not need translating...
