One day when Christopher Robin and Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet were all talking together, Christopher Robin finished the mouthful he was eating and carelessly said: "I saw a Heffalump to-day, Piglet."
"What was it doing?" asked Piglet.
"Just jumping along." said Christopher Robin. "I don't think it saw me."
"I saw one once." said Piglet. "At least, I think I did," he said. "Only perhaps it wasn't."
"So did I" said Pooh, wondering what a heffelump was like.
"You don't often see them," said Christopher Robin carelessly.
"Not now," said Piglet
"Not at this time of year," said Pooh
Then they all talked about somthing else until it was time for Pooh and Piglet to go home together. At first as they stumped along on the path which edged the Hundred Acre Wood, they didn't say much to each other, but when they came to the stream and had helped each other across the stepping stones, and were able to walk side by side again over the heather, they began to talk in a friendly way about this and that, and Piglet said, "If you see what I mean,Pooh," and Pooh said "It's just what I think myslef, Piglet," and Piglet said, "But on the other hand,Pooh, we must remember," and Pooh said, "Quite true, Piglet, although I had forgotten it for a moment." And then, just as they came to the Six Pine Trees, Pooh looked round to see that nobody else was listening and said in a very solemn voice:
"Piglet, I have decided somthing."
"What have you decided, Pooh?"
"I have decided to catch a Heffalump."
Pooh nodded his head several times as he said this, and waited for piglet to say "How?" or "Pooh, you couldn't!" or somthing helpful of the sort, but Piglet said nothing. The fact was Piglet was wishing that he had thought about it first.

"Stay here!" He called to Eeyore, as he turned and hurried back home as quick as he could; for he felt that he must get poor Eeyore a present of some sort at once, and he could always think of something of a proper one afterwards.
Outside his house he found Piglet, jumping up and down trying to reach the knocker.
"Hallo, Piglet," he said.
"Hallo, Pooh," said Piglet.
"What are you trying to do?"
"I was trying to reach the knocker," said Piglet "I just came round---"
"Let me do it for you," said Pooh kindly. So he reached up and knocked on the door. "I have just seen Eeyore," he began, "and poor Eeyore is in a Very Sad Condition, because it's his birthday, and nobody has taken any notice of it, and he's very Gloomy-- you know what Eeyore is- and there he was, and --- What a long time whoever lives here is answering this door." And he knocked again.
"But Pooh," said Piglet, "it's your own house!"
"Oh!" said Pooh. "So it is," he said. "Well, let's go in."
