Return to the Hundred Acre WoodRumors are blazing through the Hundred Acre Wood. Piglet told Rabbit and Rabbit told Owl and… well, seems Christopher Robin’s coming back! And not as some cheesy Hollywood sequel either. The new book, “Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” by David Benedictus, went on sale yesterday, with the approval of the Trustees of Pooh Properties, which oversees A.A. Milnes and illustrator E.H. Shepard’s estates. The Associated Press’ Jennifer Quinn says this is “a classic-looking Pooh.” Christopher Robin looks a little older, but everyone else looks exactly the same – and they’ve got a new buddy, Lottie the Otter, a cricket fan and etiquette maven. What do you think of a new Pooh?
