“By and by Piglet woke up. As soon as he woke he said to himself, “Oh!” Then he said bravely, “Yes,” and then, still more bravely, “Quite so.” But he didn’t feel very brave, for the word which was really jiggeting about in his brain was “Heffalumps.”
What was a Heffalump like?
Was it Fierce?
Did it come when you whistled? And how did it come?
Was it Fond of Pigs at all?
If it was Fond of Pigs, did it make any difference what sort of Pig?
Supposing it was Fierce with Pigs, would it make any difference if the Pig had a grandfather called TRESPASSERS WILLIAM?
He didn’t know the answer to any of these questions . . . and he was going to see his first Heffalump in about an hour from now!
Of course Pooh would be with him, and it was much more Friendly with two.”
~a.a. milne, winnie the pooh, chapter v in which piglet meets a heffalump
the earth huggy organic cotton heffalumps bib, made with harmony art’s let it grow and other fine organic cotton fabrics. this one makes me think of how much more friendly it is with two, or a whole community really. i love learning about life from our fellow animals, and i think we have much to learn from these beautiful creatures! i love the thought of surrounding our children with images portraying nature, and this is just one more attempt at such an endeavor.
