Winnie The Pooh: Tales from the ForestJane Riordan
Winnie-the-Pooh Tales from the Forest is a fantastic new authorised sequel story collection by Jane Riordan written in the style of A.A.Milne featuring beautiful, humorous illustrations drawn by Mark Burgess, inspired by E.H.Shepard's original, iconic decorations.
This collection sees the introduction of a brand new female character, Carmen, a little dog with lots of courage, as featured in the Telegraph newspaper and on the BBC. Carmen may be small but she is mighty, and she has a loud ROAR! She was inspired by the discovery that A.A.Milne had a little toy dog mascot, which he called Carmen, with him during WW1.
Jane's writing is filled with the gentle humour, friendship and life lessons that echo A.A.Milne's original stories. She has a true gift for conveying the essence of Milne's characters and the Hundred Acre Wood, while showing her real affection for Winnie-the-Pooh, a true bastion of British literary heritage.
'One morning, Winnie-the-Pooh woke up with a tingling feeling in his toes that told him Something Good was about to happen ...'
This authorised collection celebrates the Hundred Acre Wood. The seven brand-new stories are set after the timeless tales in Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. They take us back to much loved places that Milne's stories and Shepard's map introduced us to, like Eeyore's Gloomy Place and the Poohsticks Bridge as well as new settings that Pooh and his friends have adventures in. The stories also feature trips to the British Museum and the Tower of London.
