The folk of the hundred acre wood had such a lasting effect on us, that 90 years later, a handful of writers decided to revisit it and create amusing new stories featuring our beloved Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Rabbit, and Owl. In The Best Bear in All the World, renowned illustrator Mark Burgess provides provides colorful illustration that brings the woods to life.
As with the originals, one of the best themes of the book is allowing children to see how each character has very different personality traits and reactions. It is a great reminder to us and to the kids that we are all different, and friendship is is just easier and more enjoyable when we accept that fact.
Between this book, the movie, Christopher Robin, and the upcoming Mr. Rogers, it is quite apparent that we could all do with a good dose of wholesome nostalgia – and now we can share with the next generation!
