This is a lovely trip back to childhood. In honour of Winnie-the-Pooh being 90, there were 4 new stories written by 4 authors and illustrated in the style of EH Shepherd. It works surprisingly well. One story, set in each season. There is a new character introduced in the winter story, a penguin, and it works really well (I approve of penguins in principle).

If one were being highly critical, the colour illustrations are not the same as the original line drawings, but they do use the same water colour wash approach as Shepherd used in the 70s, so they are certainly not a great departure.

It's not the same as the originals, but it's a lovely revisiting. ( )
