Since it is published in 1926, Winnie the Pooh has been children’s all the time favorite story to read and enjoy. Winnie the Pooh lives together with his friends, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, and Rabbit in the peaceful Hundred Acre Wood.
A. A. Milne
A. A. Milne is the army veteran who talented in poetry and theatre play. He wrote Winnie the Pooh’s storybooks with Ernest H. Shepard as the illustrator. Inspiration of Winnie the Pooh’s story was coming from A. A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin. Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo were Christopher Robin’s dolls. These dolls are preserved well in New York Public Library now. You may have a visit to the library and see them in the person 😀
Why the Story is So Loveable
Winnie the Pooh character is special for children because of his loveable character. Winnie the Pooh is willing to help his friends, even though he knows it is not easy, challenging, or himself also has fear to do it. His friendship is genuine, he is fluffy as a doll, and he likes favourite food, just like us. Winnie the Pooh’s favourite food is honey, and he could do anything, creative, and a risk taker to win over a pot of honey. Sometimes, he could be careless too, but we can accept his failure and even laugh together with him. Therefore, this weakness makes Winnie the Pooh so loveable by children all over the world.
