Pooh Bear returns after 80 years.
A sequel to the classic children's book, The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne with illustrations by E. H. Shepard, is to be written by David Benedictus.
The new book is titled Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and will feature 10 stories along with 150 illustrations by Mark Burgess, in a similar format to the original Winnie the Pooh books, according to its publishers, Egmont Publishing.
Benedictus, who has adapted and produced audio adaptations of Winnie the Pooh, will include all of Milne's original characters, such as Tigger and Eeyore, in the sequel.
Return to the Hundred Acre Wood has been authorised by the trustees of Pooh Properties, which manages the estates of A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard, who created Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner in the 1920s.
The title is expected to be released on 5 October 2009 by Egmont Publishing in the UK and by Dutton Children's Books in the US.
