Pooh has a certain way of doing things which, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient principles of Taoist philosophy. In Taoism - a way of living in harmony with Tao, the way of the universe - there is a particular way of appreciating and learning from whatever happens in everyday life. This is just the way Pooh lives in harmony with life in the Hundred Acre Wood. As for Piglet, the Te (a Chinese word meaning virtue) of the Small is a principle perfectly embodied in this Very Small Animal. 'The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet' is universally acknowledged as one of the top ten influential Mind, Body and Spirit books past and present.
