Main characters in detail

This story is about loyalty to your friends, about learning to know the wold and most of all about imagination.
There are ten stories in Winnie the Pooh, but I'll summarize two.
Piglet meets a Heffalump:
In this story Pooh and Piglet decide to catch a Heffalump. To do this they think of a very ingenious trap: they will dig a hole in the ground just where the Heffalump will step. The Heffalump won't ever see it coming because he'll be looking up to the sky to see if it is about to rain, or if it already rains, he will be looking up if it clears up. To lure the Heffalump they put a pot of honey in the pit. But in the evening in bed Pooh gets hungry so he goes to the pit and sticks his head in the pot, where it is stuck. Piglet decides to have a look in the pit and sees a Heffalump, runs off and gets Christopher Robin who explains it is only Pooh with a pot on his head....
Expedition to the North pole:
Christopher Robin musters all the animals to go on an expedition to find the North Pole. They set out but the road is full of dangerous places and possible ambushes. Suddenly Roo falls into the water. Eeyore tries to save him with his tail, but it doesn't work. Then Pooh finds a long stick and holds it out for Roo to grab and he pulls him out. The long stick turns out to be the North Pole, Pooh found it. So they stick it in the ground and attach a note to it saying Pooh found the North Pole
