A sequel to a classic — A.A. Milne’s story of Winnie the Poohis being released.

David Benedictus, the writer who has taken on the task of re-creating the Hundred Acre Wood and all its inhabitants, says he tried to enter Milne’s mind to find his voice. …. [A]fter years of working on it, Return to the Hundred Acre Wood feels like his own book, albeit one that he shares with Milne: “I couldn’t have written it without Milne having set the scene and creating the characters for me. But, yes, I feel like he’s a sort of old uncle sitting in the background either smiling or frowning at my efforts a little bit.”
