The Pooh Cookbook

This is a trove of extravagant recipes: a variety of honey sauces; marmalade on a honey comb. It enticingly lists in the table of contents a recipe for getting thin. Well, it is a rather thin recipe.
Only a title and a blank page decorated with an illustration and a wee bit of dialogue: “‘How long does getting thin take?’ asked Pooh anxiously.” And with such a text … time stretches out.
And so for day 2870
