Benjamin Hoff is an Oregon writer, photographer, musician, and composer with a fondness for Forests and Bears. A Bachelor of Arts (he thinks his degree was in Asian Art, but then, he hasn't looked at it for a while, and it may not be), he was until recently a Japanese-trained fine pruning specialist. He now writes full time. Well, most of the time. The rest of the time he practices Taoist yoga, T'ai Chi Ch'uan, stunt kite-flying, boomerang shaping and (ouch!) throwing, and Taoist tennis, whatever that is. He also enjoys sleeping and lying about on the floor. He is the author of The Tao of Pooh, The Te of Piglet, and The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow: The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whiteley (all of which are available in Penguin).Hoff, Benjamin is the author of 'Tao of Pooh', published 1983 under ISBN 9780140067477 and ISBN 0140067477.
