Disney's Winnie the Pooh: A Celebration of the Silly Old Bear
Disney's Winnie the Pooh takes an in-depth loving look at the world's happiest bear. From the early stories of A. A. Milne to the Disney-created tales, Finch delves into the personalities, characteristics, and the raison d'etre of Pooh, Tigger, Roo, Piglet, and other inhabitants of the Hundred-Acre Wood. Lavishly illustrated with artwork from the Disney Archives and a few choice samples of Shepard's drawings, Winnie the Pooh and friends are getting their day in the sun. Finch, who describes his earliest memories of Milne's stories (with the name Christopher Robin Finch, he thought the books were custom made for him) chronicles the history of Pooh right up to his latest direct-to-video feature, Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin. He attempts to get at the root of Pooh's remarkable popularity. "Silliness is what kids do best. Like doing nothing, silliness can be a marvelous tonic and the Pooh stories permit adults to tap once more into the world of childhood silliness. Pooh lets adults forget about hang ups and diets, too, and rush hours, job interviews, taxes, and parking tickets. He is always waiting in the enchanted place, ready to take us back to a world where everything is still simple and problems are solvable". Disney's Winnie the Pooh captures the innocence, silliness, and just plain fun of Pooh and his buddies.
