“OH BOTHER”

In 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in a children’s book, introducing the fluff-stuffed bear alongside popular characters Piglet and Eeyore. It was written by English author A. A. Milne and Pooh & friends were illustrated by E. H. Shepard.

Nerdy Fact: Winnie-the-Pooh was based on a real bear named Winnie, who was a Canadian black bear that lived in the London Zoo. A. A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, was very fond of her and named his teddy bear after her.
