The House at Pooh Corner
The story in the first chapter in which a house is built at Pooh Corner for Eeyore is the one that gives the book its name. Pooh tells Piglet that Eeyore the donkey does not have a house. They decide to build one in the field where the donkey lives, in a corner out of the wind which Pooh names “Pooh Corner”. Tigger makes his first appearance. Illustrated by E.H. Shepard.
