Seventy-five years after he was introduced to readers by author A.A. Milne, the "best bear in all the world" continues to delight new generations of children (and one or two grownups, as well!) in such classics as Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. Brian Sibley, avid Pooh devotee (and editor of The Pooh Book of Quotations), here gathers a fascinating collection of biographical information about Winnie-the-Pooh, A.A. Milne, the real Christopher Robin, Ernest H. Shepard, and many other "collaborators" in the creation of a childhood archetype. Readers will learn Milne's initial opinion of Shepard as an illustrator, how Pooh came to have so many names, and whether there was ever a real bear named Winnie. Packed with illustrations and sketches by Shepard, as well as photographs, newspaper articles, and manuscript pages, this attractively designed book will please Pooh fans of all ages--and answer a few long-wondered questions about the beginnings of the beloved Bear of Very Little Brain.
