Winnie-the-Pooh, introduced to us in 1926 by A. A. Milne, has become a world-wide celebrity. Eighty years on, Brian Sibley sets out to tell the story of Pooh's remarkable adventures both on and off the page. From Christopher Robin's beloved teddy bear to the Bear now known and loved by children the world over, Brian Sibley explores how Pooh got his name, how A. A. Milne came to write the stories found in "Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner", and how E. H. Shepard came to produce his unsurpassed illustrations for the books. This entertaining and beautiful book contains a wealth of fascinating photographs and illustrations, and will appeal to anyone who is Friendly with Bears.
