An official Winnie-the-Pooh prequel is set to mark the 95th birthday of the honey-loving little yellow bear.

The book imagines the ‘before stories’ of Pooh, Eeyore and Piglet and shares a glimpse of a young Christopher Robin so far only seen in author AA Milne’s poetry, revealed publisher Farshore.

Writer Jane Riordan ‘perfectly captures the voice’ of Milne, said Farshore, while illustrator Mark Burgess retains the style of original artist EH Shepard.

Miss Riordan said: ‘In the original stories, Pooh lives in a tree in the Hundred Acre Wood, but history tells us that he was bought from Harrods for Christopher Robin’s first birthday.

‘I loved the idea of seeing Pooh, Eeyore and Piglet in London and in the nursery.’

The first Pooh book was published in October 1926. Winnie-the-Pooh: Once There Was A Bear is due out on September 30 for ages five and over.
