Winnie the Pooh gains a new friend

2nd October 2009

Children's favourite Winnie the Pooh is to return with a fresh set of adventures and a new friend.

Return To The Hundred Acre Wood, which is the first authorised collection in more than 80 years, has been penned by David Benedictus and will be published on October 5th through Egmont Books.

The ten new stories will reunite the absent-minded bear with old friends such as Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet, as well as providing him with a new companion - Lottie the otter.

'Lottie has her own very definite ideas about how things should be done. She believes that one must always follow the correct etiquette,' Benedictus explained.

The last official collection, The House At Pooh Corner, was written by the bear's original creator AA Milne and was published in 1928.

Michael Brown, chairman of the Trustees of the Pooh Properties, said the new book has the group's approval and claimed Benedictus' stories fit seamlessly with the original tales.

Last month, Disney announced it had started production of a new Pooh film that will bring together five stories which have never been seen on the big screen before.
