    I thought this was a new bedtime tale This is someone who basically went through the Winnie the Pooh books and took out the Tigger focused stories and put them in this small book It looks like a bedtime story, but it s really not It is mostly full pages of words and it would take 20 30 minutes to read these lovely stories There are 3 excerpts 1 Tigger Comes to the Forest and has Breakfast 2 It is Shown that Tiggers don t Climb Trees 3 Tigger is Unbounced.This is a quick way to read snippets I thought this was a new bedtime tale This is someone who basically went through the Winnie the Pooh books and took out the Tigger focused stories ...
