Books To Read

 

The Life and Times of the Real Winnie-The-Pooh by Shirley Harrison

 http://www.shirleyharrison.co.uk/winnie.html

To celebrate his 90th birthday this is the fascinating, first, biography of the real teddy bear which was the inspiration for A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories. 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. From there we go to the family homes in Chelsea and on the Ashdown Forest in Sussex. It was here that A.A.Milne wrote his world-famous books, and that Pooh eventually emigrated to America, spending many years as a celebrity on tour. Today, he lives in retirement in New York Children’s Library with Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Piglet.

Containing much original material, friends of the Milne family and Pooh’s guardians in the United States, tell their stories and share their previously unpublished photos and diaries for Shirley Harrison's biography. Included, too, is the author’s own remembrance of the day in 1976 when Winnie-the-Pooh journeyed home to Hartfield for a holiday - and played Poohsticks on Poohsticks Bridge.
