Nothing is sacred


I am feeling uneasy about this week’s release ofReturn to the 100 Acre Wood. I understand the wish of the executors of AA Milne to earn an extra pound or two but the creation of an entirely new character — one Lottie the Otter to join Pooh the bear of very little brain, Piglet, Eeyore and Owl - just doesn’t seem right to me. I will with hold final judgment until after I have read this new version written “by David Benedictus based on the Pooh stories by AA Milne, with decorations by Mark Burgess in the style of EH Shepard” to the grandsons.
