Penguin Arrives At The Hundred Acre Wood
"Winter: In Which Penguin Arrives in the Forest" by Brian Sibley is one of four new adventures commissioned by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties for the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh. Sibley was inspired by an archival photograph of Pooh creator A.A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin Milne. The photo shows Milne and his son playing with a teddy bear - which they called Winnie-the-Pooh after a Canadian black bear that lived in the London Zoo - and a stuffed toy penguin.
