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.
