To celebrate his birthday this is the first, fascinating, biography of the real teddy bear which was the inspiration for A,A. Milnes Winnie-the-Pooh. It takes us from his birth in an Acton toy factory in 1921, to Harrods where he was bought by Mrs Daphne Milne for her baby son, Christopher Robin, and from there to the familys home in Chelsea and at weekends and holidays down to the farmhouse on Ashdown Forest, Sussex. It was here that A.A.Milne wrote his world-famous books, and from here that Pooh eventually emigrated to America, spending many years as a celebrity on tour. Today, he lives in retirement in New York Childrens Library with Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Piglet.Containing much original material, friends of the Milne family and Poohs Guardians in the United States, tell their stories and share their previously unpublished photos and diaries, including, too, the authors own remembrance of the day in l976, when Winnie-the-Pooh journeyed home to Hartfield for a holiday - and played Pooh Stick on Pooh Sticks Bridge..A truly heart-warming tale of a cuddly teddy bear, loved by Christopher Robin, and ultimately transformed into one of the worlds richest and most famous bears of all time.
