A.A. Milne’s classic character Winnie-the-Pooh is about to embark on further adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood.

In 2009 the Milne estate sanctioned the sequel, Return to the Hundred Acre Wood by David Benedictus. Now Egmont has announced that they are planning an “official anthology sequel” next year to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the publication of the very first Pooh book in October 1926. Four writers will work on the anthology but their names have not yet been announced. Mark Burgess, the illustrator of Benedictus’s sequel, will also illustrate the anthology.

The only clue to the writers involved in this project is a statement from Egmont that refers to them as, “outstanding writers with a real understanding for AA Milne’s characters and world”.

Who do you think will be the writers involved in this project?

In the meantime we leave you with a little wisdom from one of our favourite characters.
