Pooh dropped his stone.
There was a loud splash, and Eeyore disappeared...
It was an anxious moment for the watchers on the bridge.
They looked and looked...
and even the sight of Piglet's stick coming out a little in front of Rabbit's didn't cheer them up as much as you would have expected.
And then, just as Pooh was beginning to think that he must have chosen the wrong stone or the wrong river or the wrong day for his Idea, something grey showed for a moment by the river bank...
and it got slowly bigger and bigger...
and at last it was Eeyore coming, out.
With a shout they rushed off the bridge,
and pushed and pulled at him; and soon he was standing among them again on dry land
