Synopsis

Help celebrate Winnie-the-Pooh's anniversary with Winnie-the-Pooh: Once There Was a Bear (the Official 95th Anniversary Prequel)







We all have a place in our hearts for the adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh, as told by A.A.Milne in Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. In honour of the 95th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh, highly talented author Jane Riordan has created a wonderful collection of stories, written in the style of A.A.Milne, that take us back to where it all began, when Winnie-the-Pooh was first purchased for baby Christopher Robin.





These brand-new stories are decorated with beautiful illustrations of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends created by Mark Burgess in the style of E.H.Shepard. He is uniquely suited to this having also illustrated The Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and The Best Bear in All the World. Jane Riordan has a strong pedigree in writing in the style of A.A.Milne, having also created Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the Queen and the re-issue edition Winnie-the-Pooh Goes to London.





This timeless story collection is a real tribute to the world's most famous bear and the perfect opportunity for everyone to revisit these favourite friends and find out how they become the larger than life characters that we all know and love.

Since then, she has edited and written countless books for children, most notably Winnie-the-Pooh Goes to London and Once There Was a Bear. The official Winnie-the-Pooh prequel is written in the style of the original Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A.A.Milne with illustrations created by Mark Burgess, that echo E.H.Shepard's iconic original decorations.
