Publisher Comments:

The Te of Piglet . . . in which a good deal of Taoist wisdom is revealed through the character and actions of A. A. Milne's Piglet. Piglet? Yes, Piglet. For the better than impulsive Tigger? or the gloomy Eeyore? or the intellectual Owl? or even the lovable Pooh? Piglet herein demonstrates a very important principle of Taoism: The Te--a Chinese word meaning Virtue--of the Small.

Synopsis:

Combining the irresistible charm of the A. A. Milne classic and the enduring wisdom of ancient Eastern philosophical teachings, this delightfully enlightening sequel to "The Tao of Pooh" is sure to captivate the legions of loyal readers who have found pleasure in walking the Path of Pooh. 51 line drawings.

I am not much for religion and even more so not for reading it but this book was entertaining. Just like the author mentions the power of a stream, this book is easygoing, to the point and envelops many thoughts and actions of people around us. I enjoy the examples the author uses besides the conversations between the Winnie the Pooh characters, but having those interactions included really keeps in mind the "mind of a child" mentality and innocence the author is trying to get across. Very pleased with this book.
