''Winnie-the-Pooh'' is a British children's book written in 1926 by author Creator/AAMilne.
Creator/AAMilne. The original book of stories was, famously, inspired by Milne's son Christopher Robin Milne and Christopher's assortment of stuffed animals, including a teddy bear that became Winnie-the-Pooh, a tiger that became Tigger, and a donkey that became Eeyore. Pooh and his friends live in the Hundred Acre Wood, itself inspired by Ashdown Forest in Sussex, where Milne had a cottage. Pooh, his friends, and his best friend Christopher Robin have many adventures.
