About the Author
Benjamin Hoff grew up in a rural area a few miles from Portland, Oregon. As a child, he preferred to spend his time outdoors, observing animals, insects, and plants. And from an early age he loved to write. He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller The Tao of Pooh and The Diary of Opal Whiteley.
"[Hoff's} Taoist manifesto distills ageless personal and political wisdom, relaying an ecological message we ignore at our peril." -- Publishers Weekly
"In the original, as you may recall, Hoff had an Idea: that Winnie-the-Pooh could be used to explain Taoism, the ancient Chinese way of balance. Now, as luck would have it, Pooh's buddy Piglet turns out to be the perfect embodiment of Te, the Taoist term for virtue, which is attained through sensitivity, modesty, and smallness." -- Kirkus Reviews
