Synopsis Edit

Back in Traverse Town, Sora tells Merlin that he has found a page of the book and places it back in. However, he is sucked into the book and finds himself in the 100 Acre Wood.

Nearby, Winnie the Pooh is sitting in his thoughtful spot, thinking, when Piglet flies by holding on to a balloon. Sora pops the balloon with a rock and catches Piglet. Pooh remembers that he was thinking about using the balloon to fly up the Hunny Tree without disturbing the bees to get honey. Sora apologizes for ruining his plan, but Pooh states it's all right before introducing himself and Piglet as friends. Piglet explains his worry over never seeing Pooh again as the other inhabitants have gone missing. Tigger jumps on Sora to introduce himself before being frightened by a noise. Sora informs him that it's just Pooh's growling stomach as Pooh is hungry for honey. Tigger tells Pooh to get on a seesaw, and he jumps on the other side, shooting Pooh into a hole in the hunny tree. Sora and Piglet worry about Pooh's safety, and at Sora's urging, Tigger shoots Sora into a hole just underneath Pooh's. Sora, drenched in honey, tells Pooh that he's there to help, but Pooh is happily eating the honey. After Pooh's stomach is filled with honey, Sora leaves to go find his friends, but reassures the three that they are friends as well.

Sora is shot out of the book, and he realizes that he was able to leave since the story was over. Pooh tells Sora that they'll always be there if he'd like to visit again as the blank cover changes to depict Sora, Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger walking down a road.
