Synopsis

The silly, sweet-hearted bear, Winnie and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, have delighted generations of readers since Winnie-The-Pooh was first published in 1926. The story was inspired by the author, A.A. Milne’s own son, Christopher Robins, and his many furry friends.  The tale follows the many adventures of Winnie and his friends, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga, Christopher Robin, and many more. He calls himself a Bear of Very Little Brain, yet he shows faithfully that he is a wise and loving creature, furthermore a whimsical philosopher who is rather fond of honey. Three cheers for Pooh!
