Winnie ille Pu

Mom and I spent a couple of hours at the Menlo Park Library book sale this morning. I came home with 15 books, at an average price of 80¢ per book. Not bad (aside from the perennial questions of where I will put them and when I will read them). Undoubtedly the most amusing find was a copy of Winnie the Pooh translated into Latin. I don't read Latin, and I don't plan on learning to, but the fact that this even exists tickled me enough that I had to get it. I especially like some of the translated names, like "Ior" and "Porcellus."

Curiously enough, the pronunciation of "Ior" is "Eeyore"
