Context: Winnie-the-Pooh, a stuffed bear, is the hero of this cleverly told, episodic story of the little creatures of a child's fanciful world. Presumably an adult is "reviving" Pooh's adventures for a child, Christopher Robin, who figures largely in all the adventures of Pooh, his own little bear.

Throughout all of Pooh's experiences the one trait most apparent about this little bear is his enormous appetite for honey, a weakness which repeatedly gets him in trouble. There is the story of his various attempts to rob a honey tree, and of his several mishaps therefrom.
