Join our celebrations for the 95th Anniversary of Winnie-the-Pooh

On Christmas Eve in 1925 Winnie-the-Pooh’s first story appeared in print on page 7 of Evening News. Readers got to meet the Bear of Very Little Brain and join him on his quest for honey. 10 months later on the 14th of October 1926, the book of Winnie-the-Pooh was published.

That means 2021 marks 95 years since Winnie-the-Pooh, F.O.P (Friend of Piglet’s), R.C. (Rabbit’s Companion, P.D. (Pole Discoverer), E.C. and T.F. (Eeyore’s Comforter and Tail-finder) made his print debut.

For 95 years Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood have been delighting readers of all ages with their antics and adventures.
