MARK EVANS & E. H. SHEPARD    Book Number: 88251    Product format: Hardback

'Poohsticks! Hazzumble! Hooray! Be you animal, vegetable, mineral, girl or boy, I hope it's something you'll enjoy. So tiddly-pom and tiddly-po, brace yourself, here we go...' First things first. Poohsticks is, at its simplest, a game of sticks and rivers and bridges and friends and fun. A. A. Milne created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. 'When We Were Very Young' was published in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal 'Winnie-the-Pooh'. Through his writings for Punch magazine, he met the artist E. H. Shepard who went on to draw the classic original illustrations, still much loved today and used in this glorious edition, rendered in colour with additional decorations by Mark Burgess. Fir cones may be used in a game to be taken VERY SERIOUSLY. "Choose a starter, by which I mean someone to start the game and not a delicious pre-meal smackerel. Cross to the downstream of the bridge. Watch for the sticks. Whoever owns the first one through is the winner." See the gorgeous Millennium Bridge over to St Paul's with our favourite characters Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and all the friends on a picnic in this whizzity-whizz update of a classic. For all ages to enjoy, 46pp, colour illus.
