Winnie the Pooh's 80 year comeback
Winnie the Pooh is to make a literary comeback 80 years on from his first appearance.
What? You thought that there had been lots of publications in the intervening years? Well lots of Disney adaptations but never an officially sanctioned set of new stories.
Get ready for some new adventures of Winnie our bear of very little brain called 'Return to the Hundred Acre Wood' - in a bookshop near you in October.
The late AA Milne's beloved children's character Winnie the Pooh is set to return to bookshelves, 80 years on from his first literary appearance.
The Bear of Very Little Brain will make his comeback in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, the first authorised sequel to Milne's original 1920s stories.
The book - written by David Benedictus with illustrations by Mark Burgess - is out in the UK and US on 5 October.
The new book has the blessing of the A A Milne and E H Shepard Estates.
Shepard, who died in 1976, drew the famous illustrations for Milne's 1926 book Winnie-the-Pooh and its 1928 follow-up, The House at Pooh Corner.
