The Story of Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh, affectionately known as Pooh Bear is a fictional bear created by author A.A. Milne. Milne was inspired to write the now classic Pooh stories by his wife Daphne and his young son, Christopher Robin.
A. A. Milne wrote a series of books about Winnie the Pooh, his son Christopher Robin, and their friends at 100-Aker-Wood. Characters, such as Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga and Roo were based on stuffed animals belonging to Christopher Robin. The inspiration for 100 Aker Wood came from Ashdown Forest, Sussex, where author A.A. Milne lived with his family at Cotchford Farm.
The character first appeared in book form in Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Milne also included several poems about Winnie-the-Pooh in the children's poetry books When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six. All four volumes were illustrated by E. H. Shepard.
Disneyadapted the Pooh stories into a series of features that became one of its most successful franchises.
