90 years after Winnie-the-Pooh first delighted readers, David Benedictus takes us back to the Hundred Acre Wood for more adventures with A. A. Milne's Bear of Very Little Brain.
From the excitement of Christopher Robin's return to the curious business of learning to play cricket, Return to the Hundred Acre Wood features all the old friends from Pooh, to Piglet, Eeyore to Owl and Tigger to Rabbit. David Benedictus's authorized sequel to A. A.
Milne's original Winnie-the-Pooh stories are splendidly illustrated by Mark Burgess in the style of the original E. H. Shepard artwork.
All of the old friends are in attendance. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the Hundred Acre Wood 90 years after since it was first discovered. There's still plenty of fun to be had in this forest.
Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. Whether you're 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages.
