For the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh, a sequel featuring new stories and a new character from the Hundred Acre Wood.
Now a New York Times Bestseller.
The Trustees of the Pooh Properties have commissioned four authors to write in the timeless style of A.A. Milne to create a quartet of charming new adventures for Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall: take a trip back to the Hundred Acre Wood with a collection of tales sure to delight year-round.
One story finds Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet on a quest to discover the "Sauce of the Nile" (they suspect it's apple). And in another, all the animals rally around poor Eeyore when he thinks he sees another donkey eyeing his clover. The winter story features a new penguin character, based on a stuffed toy owned by Christopher Robin Milne himself. Readers of all ages will love rediscovering old friends and making new ones in this essential new volume of Pooh stories.
The book feature beautiful color artwork in the style of Ernest H. Shepard by Mark Burgess.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book offers continued stories about Winnie the Pooh and his friends, written and illustrated in the styles of A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard, respectively. It contains four short stories by four different authors. While I enjoyed reading more adventures of Pooh and friends, I didn't feel they exactly captured the magic of the originals. They came close, but I just have too much of an affinity for Milne's Pooh adventures (at least the first two books). I think some of the stories contained in this sequel book were stronger than the others, too, and another I felt like I had seen in an episode of the 1980s Saturday morning cartoon. I particularly loved the new character of Penguin, though, who appeared only on a snowy day, even though his personality wasn't fleshed out very much. I'd definitely love to see more of him and see him incorporated as a new inhabitant of the Hundred Acre Wood.
