Overview

Winnie the Pooh was born on August 21, 1921, as a first birthday gift to a little boy named Christopher Robin Milne. Pooh grew up to become the most beloved and famous bear in the world. He has appeared in books and films, and on all sorts of things from bed covers to postage stamps. How is it possible for a stuffed toy animal to achieve such greatness?

Pooh's road to fame began with A. A. Milne, an English novelist and playwright. Inspired by his four-year-old son, Milne tried his hand at some children's poems, which were well received. Thereafter, between 1924 and 1928, Milne published four classic children's books that introduced Christopher Robin and his fanciful friends Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, and little Roo.

While the literary Pooh continued to win new generations of fans, an on-screen Pooh was destined to expand the appeal of the Hundred-Acre Wood. In 1961, Walt Disney acquired the exclusive film rights to Milne's Pooh stories. Since then, The Walt Disney Company has produced numerous shorts, features, and television shows about the Silly Old Bear, and that tradition continues with the release of the 2011 film, Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh: A Celebration of the Silly Old Bear is a tribute to the wonder of Pooh, from his origin and literary success to his brilliant animated career and continued popularity. This is his story; but, moreover, it is his art-including more than 200 illustrations that detail the evolution of Pooh and his friends from stuffed toys to animated characters.
