It was eighty years ago, on the publication of The House at Pooh Corner, when Christopher Robin said good-bye to Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now they are all back in new adventures, for the first time approved by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties. This is a companion volume that truly captures the style of A. A. Milne-a worthy sequel to The House at Pooh Corner and Winnie-the-Pooh.

Listen to award-winning narrator Jim Dale reading the Exposition to Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. Also available from Penguin Audio.

avery special one that I was keeping for my Collection of Special and Interesting Stones.” “Tigger,”said Rabbit severely, “what we have to consider here is the Greater Good of the Greater Number. Give me your pebble.” “Must I?”But even as Tigger asked, he knew what the answer would be. Then Rabbit took Tigger’s pebble and held it high above the shaft and called for silence and let it drop. The animals listened for what seemed like several minutes but was probably just a few seconds, and

term, the four pupils of the Hundred Acre Wood Academy presented themselves right in the middle of the Hundred Acre Wood, where Eeyore was standing in front of a blackboard. He was wearing a mortarboard and a fine old gown with a scarlet hood and held a new piece of yellow chalk in one hoof and one of those things for rubbing out chalk in another. He welcomed the pupils by reading the register (which didn’t take long), then handed it solemnly to Pooh, who had been recruited as Prefect and given

halfway to his mouth. “So I was going to mention that you ought really to go on wearing your armband, at least on special occasions. Sort of like soldiers and medals.” So Winnie-the-Pooh did just that. And he was not the only one. If you visited Eeyore when he wasn’t expecting you, you would sometimes find him in his gown and mortarboard, using the tassle to keep flies away, and the blackboard to practice his tap dancing. And as for Lottie, she could not keep her mind on anything for very

excitement at hitting the ball into a bird’s nest in the chestnut tree (they had had to send Owl to fly up and bring it down), Tigger bounced right over the wicket and landed on top of Eeyore. “How’s that?” cried Christopher Robin. “Painful,” gasped Eeyore from underneath Tigger. “Out. Caught by Eeyore,” said Owl. Rabbit came in to bat, and nudged the ball here, there, and everywhere until he was bowled out by Christopher Robin. “I thought I’d better give the others a chance,” Rabbit

had shut his eyes and was trying to get back into the dream. Next on Rabbit’s list was Christopher Robin, whom he found sketching the Six Pine Trees. “Hallo, Rabbit. How’s the Census going?” “Very well, very well, if we exclude certain donkeys. After all, a thing begun is a thing half done.” Christopher Robin frowned over his sketch. “I don’t think so, Rabbit. If I begin to read a book that has a hundred pages, I begin on page one but it isn’t half done until I get to page fifty, agreed?”
