Winnie-the-Pooh: Return to the Hundred Acre Wood Hardback
Illustrated by Mark Burgess
Part of the Winnie-the-Pooh - Classic Editions series
Over eighty years since Winnie-the-Pooh first delighted readers, David Benedictus takes us back to the Hundred Acre Wood for more adventures with A.
A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh. The rumours are true - Christopher Robin is back in the Hundred Acre Wood.
From the excitement of Christopher Robin's return to the curious business of learning to play cricket, Return to the Hundred Acre Wood allows readers to spend a few more treasured hours with the Best Bear in All the World.
David Benedictus's authorized sequel to A. A. Milne's original Winnie-the-Pooh stories are splendidly illustrated by Mark Burgess in the style of the original E.
H. Shepard artwork. All of the old friends are in attendance - from Pooh, to Piglet, Eeyore to Owl and Tigger to Eeyore.
Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the Hundred Acre Wood 80 years after since it was first discovered.
There's still plenty of fun to be had in this forest.

Review by MissDiggy
New adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends written in the style of A.A.Milne with coloured-pencil illustrations in the original style of E.H.Shepard, involving Heffalumps, Heroes, Encouraging Ideas, and New Friends (Lottie the Otter). But - I couldn't help feeling the author was trying too hard to capture the one-time innocence of Hundred Acre Wood. He does, however, explain to Christopher Robin at the beginning that he will try to Get It Right with a small possibility of Getting It Wrong. Sadly though it reads like a slightly forced happy romp with our well-worn old friends, made more comfortable by simply delightful illustrations. I enjoyed the re-introduction to Pooh and friends but hope new readers of Pooh also try A.A.Milne's originals before saying "No" to Hundred Acre Wood at bedtime.
