Abstract:

"When Christopher Robin Milne was given a small Farnell teddy bear from Harrods 90 years ago on-one realised how much it would change so many lives. His father, A.A. Milne, wrote many stories around the adventures of the toy bear. Eventually Pooh's international fame soured the relationship between father and son, also generating much commercial feuding in his name. In 1947 Pooh was sent to live in New York, where he remains today with his friends from the nursery, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Tigger. Still raising millions of pounds for charity he has become the richest, most valuable and best-love teddy bear in the world."--Jacket [p. 2.].
