The Natural World of Winnie the Pooh

Only 1 left in stock

Take an extraordinary journey through the places at the heart of Winnie-the-Pooh’s iconic adventures. The magical setting for the stories is a real place: the Hundred Acre Wood was inspired by Ashdown Forest, a wildlife haven that spans more than 6,000 acres in southeast England. The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh explores the enchanting landscapes where Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends live and play. Visit the ancient black walnut tree on the edge of the forest that became Pooh’s house. Go deep into the pine trees to find Poohsticks Bridge, where Milne played the famous game he created for his son, the real Christopher Robin. See the old quarry where Roo played in his sandy pit. Climb up to the top of the enchanted Galleons Lap, where Pooh says goodbye to Christopher Robin. You will discover how Milne’s childhood connection with nature and his role as a father influenced his famous stories, and how his close collaboration with illustrator E.H. Shepard brought those stories to life. This charming book also serves as a guide to the plants, animals, and places of the remarkable Ashdown Forest, whether you are visiting in person or from the comfort of your favourite armchair.
