"What's this you're writing?... asked Pooh, climbing onto the writing table.

"The Tao of Pooh,... I replied.

"The how of Pooh?... asked Pooh, smudging one of the words I had just written.

"The Tao of Pooh,... I replied, poking his paw away with my pencil.

"It seems more like ow! of Pooh,... said Pooh, rubbing his paw.



"Well, it's not,... I replied huffily.

"What's it about?... asked Pooh, leaning forward and smearing another word.

"It's about how to stay happy and calm under all circumstances!... I yelled.

"Have you read it?... asked Pooh...

...Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world's most beloved bear, and Pooh's Way, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient Chinese principles of Taoism.

Follow the Pooh Way in this humorous and enlightening introduction to Taoism, with classic illustrations from E.H. Shepard throughout.

Benjamin Hoff

Benjamin Hoff is an American writer, photographer, musician and composer. He is the author of The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet, both of which explain the Chinese philosophy of Taoism through the characters created by A.A. Milne. A.A. Milne was born in London in 1882 and became a successful playwright and poet.

He based Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and friends on the real nursery toys of his son Christopher Robin and published the first of their adventures in 1926. Since then, Pooh has become a world-famous bear, and Milne's stories have been translated into sixty-two languages.

E. H. Shepard

E.H. Shepard was born in London in 1879. He was a cartoonist and illustrator and went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classic stories, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.

  • My new favourite book

    This is beautifully written, simple yet profound. I’m new to Taoism, but this really resonated with me and invited self reflection, a reminder not to lose one’s sense of wonder
