Winnie-the-Pooh has always been a very special (albeit funny old) bear, not least of all because his books are filled with wonderful words of wisdom.', Stylist magazine
Based on the Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A.A.Milne with decorations in the style of E.H.Shepard. A.A.Milne was born in London in 1882 and later became a highly successful writer of plays, poems and novels. He based Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and friends on the real nursery toys of his son Christopher Robin and published the first of their adventures together in 1926. Since then, Pooh has become a world-famous bear, and Milnes stories have been translated into seventy-two languages. E.H.Shepard was born in London in 1879. He was a cartoonist and artist, and went on to draw the original decorations to accompany Milnes classic stories, earning him the name the man who drew Pooh.
