Publisher's Summary

It was 80 years ago, on the publication of The House at Pooh Corner, when Christopher Robin said good-bye to Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now they are all back in new adventures, for the first time approved by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties. This is a companion volume that truly captures the style of A. A. Milne - a worthy sequel to The House at Pooh Corner and Winnie-the-Pooh.

Glorious Jim Dale

Like many Americans, I grew up with such British childhood classics as "House at Pooh Corner." Yet one forgets how veddy British they are, till one hears one's favorite characters, from Christopher Robin to Eeyore, speaking with gorgeous accents, and Rabbit sporting a Scottish brogue, all provided by the glorious Jim Dale. David Benedictus does a fine job bringing Pooh and his pals to life, updating the original ever so gently here and there. The premise of "Return to the Hundred Acre Wood" is Christopher Robin's return from prep school for summer vacation. And then, in addition to Owl, Piglet, and the rest, there's a new character, Lotte the Otter, who adds her own feminine (and hilarious) touch to the forest. I hope Benedictus and Dale team up again to bring us more pleasure. And more HUUUUMMMMMMS! I've never heard a hum before, and, yes, this is exactly how they should sound! :-)
