Synopsis

Winnie-the-Pooh: Three Cheers for Pooh by Brian Sibley

This is the story of how Winnie-the-Pooh came to be the nation's favourite teddy bear. Winnie-the-Pooh is one of the best-loved children's characters of all time. But how did he become so popular? In this beautifull book, author Brian Sibley tells the story of Pooh's origins and how he came to be the Bear for All Ages. Illustrated with many rare photographs, drawings and sketches, this book is the complete guide to Winnie-the-Pooh and his creators, A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. This book really is something quite special. Perfect for fans aged 5 and 55. The nation's favourite teddy bear has been delighting generations of children for 90 years. Milne's classic children's stories - featuring Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and, of course, Pooh himself - are both heart-warming and funny, teaching lessons of friendship and reflecting the power of a child's imagination like no other story before or since. Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. BRIAN SIBLEY is a writer, broadcaster, and life-long Pooh aficionado. His first radio programme was a celebration of Pooh's fiftieth birthday followed, a few years later, by a radio play about A. A. Milne. He compiled The Pooh Book of Quotations and edited The Pooh Sketch Book.
