Intriquing story of AA Milne, Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh.
“A Bear Named Winnie” starring Michael Fassbender... good movie.
If you go to the NY Public Library on 42nd you can see WTP in the basement/Children’s book section. Reading room restoration is beautiful, map room a must see. Staff not friendly, but the building is great.
Yes. My 1st grade teacher was a A.A. Milne enthusiast. Fond memories of her reading his books to us.
My favorite book as a child was a light lavender book with a collection of Winnie the Pooh stories and some of Milne’s poems. As an adult, I bought the books with all of his poems & still enjoy them. Since then, I have found a book containing the entire collection of stories/poems & have given it several times as presents to family/friends when they have their first child. Thanks for the post!
Just saw a new-ish movie on a flight called “Goodbye Christopher Robin”.
Pretty good depiction of how the stories came to be and what price that family paid for the success.
I highly recommend it.
