The House at Pooh Corner is a children's book that comprises the fourth of four volumes in The Pooh Books, Milne's series of children's books featuring the adventures of the teddy bear character Winnie the Pooh and his friends of the Hundred Acre Wood. Notably, this text marks the debut of Pooh's friend Tigger, a tiger who loves to bounce on his tail. The House at Pooh Corner is a collection of short stories written in episodic format, meaning each chapter can be read independently of one another, with the notable exceptions of Chapters 8 & 9. As the last installment of The Pooh Books, The House at Pooh Corner is both Milne's farewell to his readers and Christopher Robin's goodbye to Pooh and his other animal friends.
