The Wrong Bees (Winnie-the-Pooh)
|Author:||A. A. Milne|
Isn't it funny How a bear likes honey? Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! I wonder why he does? Winnie-the-Pooh goes out for a walk and encounters the "wrong sort of bees" in this, the first Winnie-the-Pooh story by A A Milne. Now available as an individual storybook with E H Shepard's illustrations.
A. A. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, was based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. He produced a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926, the best-selling Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Through his writings for Punch magazine, A. A. Milne met E. H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.
