Winnie the bear known as “Winnie-the-Pooh” celebrates its 95th birthday with a new story. The book about the iconic bear, which was first released 95 years ago, is still popular all over the world. Now, Pooh’s story has a new chapter, namely Pooh’s journey from the toy shelf of the Harrods department store to the Hundred Hectare Forest.
In the woods located in East Sussex, England, children seem to gather to listen to stories read by Jane Riordan, a book author. He was reading “Winnie-the Pooh: Once There Was a Bear.”
The book tells the story of how the lovable bear made his way out of a toy shelf at the Harrods department store to Christopher Robin’s house and the Hundred Acres Forest.
Jane said, “It’s just children, toys, animals, whatever you want to call them. So there’s a tremendous freedom from those stories. And that’s something that appeals to every generation. So I think it really is. eternal.”
The children were fascinated by the story “Winnie-the-Pooh” read by Jane Riordan.
What’s so special about the “Winnie-the-Pooh” bear? One girl who was listening to the book read said, “I like it because it’s about animals. I really like animals because they’re so cute. And I think there’s good in this world.”
The book “Winnie-the-Pooh” by Alan Alexander Milne, an English author, was first published in October 1926. He wrote several stories and poems about the adventures of Christopher Robin with his bear. The books and illustrations are kept by the children and their parents from generation to generation.
The new book, titled “Winnie-the Pooh: Once There Was a Bear,” is a prequel and tells how Pooh became Christopher Robin’s friend and how he got his name.
One hundred years ago, Daphne, wife of A. A Milne, was looking for a gift for her newborn baby, Christopher Robin. Daphne then went to Harrods, a luxury department store in England. That’s where the idea of one of the world’s famous bear characters was born.
Sebastian Wormell, an archives manager at Harrods said, “Daphne was going to buy a Farnell bear. Farnell was a well-known teddy bear maker in England at the time. So this is Edward Bear, exactly the same as the one Daphne Milne bought.”
In the woods located in East Sussex, children are still engrossed in listening to Jane Riordan reading the book “Winnie-the Pooh: Once There Was a Bear.” It’s the forest where Christopher Robin used to play, and today, a new generation of children are still interested in tracing the history of the bear, Winne-the-Pooh.
