This is an exact reproduction of the Original Winnie-the-Pooh published in 1926. Winnie-the-Pooh is perhaps unique in that it is based on real people and historical events. Christopher Robin was a real person. As a child, he had a teddy bear he named “Winnie-the-Pooh”. The bear was named after a real bear in the London Zoo named Winnie. The introductory chapter in the book “Winnie-the-Pooh” explains how the teddy bear got his name. The stories later in the book are fiction, but the beginning introduction to the book is factual. Because this book is about real people and events, this places the book in a different legal position than other children's books with cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck which are purely the inventions of their creators. The real Winnie-the-Pooh is now on display at the New York Public Library.

    Winnie the Pooh is one of the best books out there. even though I'm older now I still love to read it again and again. I love the audiobook best of all with the relaxing music. I love the story about the expansion, with rabbit thinking he is important :)

      This book is endearing and filled with simple tales of how to treat one another respectfully in life.
