Description

For the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh, a sequel featuring new stories and a new character from the Hundred Acre Wood. Now a New York Times Bestseller. The Trustees of the Pooh Properties have commissioned four authors to write in the timeless style of A.A. Milne to create a quartet of charming new adventures for Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall: take a trip back to the Hundred Acre Wood with a collection of tales sure to delight year-round. One story finds Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet on a quest to discover the "Sauce of the Nile" (they suspect it's apple). And in another, all the animals rally around poor Eeyore when he thinks he sees another donkey eyeing his clover. The winter story features a new penguin character, based on a stuffed toy owned by Christopher Robin Milne himself. Readers of all ages will love rediscovering old friends and making new ones in this essential new volume of Pooh stories. The book feature beautiful color artwork in the style of Ernest H. Shepard by Mark Burgess.

Professional reviews

"Martin Jarvis takes on the narration of four new Winnie-the-Pooh stories and nails it. In this authorized sequel Jarvis has all the emphasis, hesitation, skepticism, authority, bluster, elongated pauses, grumpiness, breathlessness, hush, and tempo and voice modulation listeners expect from a Winnie-the-Pooh 90th anniversary celebration. Listeners will meet Penguin, who arrives in the Hundred Acre Wood, take an adventure to find the sauce--or is it the source?--of the Nile, help Eeyore protect his clover patch, and search for a dragon. Jarvis's delight is clear as he delivers the dramatic moments involving Christopher Robin, Pooh, Piglet, and Eeyore, who is portrayed in Jarvis's deepest and most gravelly voice. To complete the production, the four authors share their individual inspirations for each adventure. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
