Amazon Description:
For the 90th anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh, a sequel featuring new stories from the Hundred Acre Wood.

The Trustees of the Pooh Properties have commissioned four authors to write in the timeless style of A.A. Milne to create a quartet of charming new adventures for Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall: take a trip back to the Hundred Acre Wood with a collection of tales sure to delight year-round.

My Thoughts:
The recently released collection of new Winnie-the-Pooh stories - The Best Bear in All the World - is delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed the imaginative tales with their accompanying whimsical illustrations. There is a story set in each of the four seasons - and even one new character introduced.(Inspired by one of the real Christopher Robin's stuffed animals.) If you're a fan of Winnie-the-Pooh, this little book is a must read. I highly recommend The Best Bear in All the World for children - and book collectors - of all ages!
