The true story of the iconic teddy bear who became a beloved children’s book character and continues to inspire children around the world. In this captivating biography, author Shirley Harrison follows the journey of Winnie-the-Pooh, the world’s most famous silly old bear, from his first appearance to his final resting place. Winnie-the-Pooh was “born” in an Acton toy factory in 1921. From there he traveled to Harrods where he was bought by Mrs. Daphne Milne for her baby son, Christopher Robin. At the family’s farmhouse in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, deep in the “Hundred Acre Wood,” author A.A. Milne transformed his son Christopher Robin’s playtime fantasies into the stories that would captivate readers the world over. From England, Pooh emigrated to America, spending many years as a celebrity on tour. Today, he lives in retirement in the Children’s Center of the New York Public Library along with Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga, and Piglet. Filled with family anecdotes and illustrated with photographs of the people and places that brought the bear to life, The Life and Times of the Real Winnie-the-Pooh is a biography that traces the steps of the bear himself, the Milne family, and the loveable character they created.

The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh explores the magical landscapes where Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends live and play. The Hundred Acre Wood—the setting for Winnie-the-Pooh’s adventures—was inspired by Ashdown Forest, a wildlife haven that spans more than 6,000 acres in southeast England. In the pages of this enchanting book you can visit the ancient black walnut tree on the edge of the forest that became Pooh’s house, go deep into the pine trees to find Poohsticks Bridge, and climb up to the top of the enchanted Galleons Lap, where Pooh says goodbye to Christopher Robin. You will discover how Milne's childhood connection with nature and his role as a father influenced his famous stories, and how his close collaboration with illustrator E. H. Shepard brought those stories to life. This charming book also serves as a guide to the plants, animals, and places of the remarkable Ashdown Forest, whether you are visiting in person or from the comfort of your favorite armchair. In a delightful narrative, enriched with Shepard’s original illustrations, hundreds of color photographs, and Milne’s own words, you will rediscover your favorite characters and the magical place they called home.

Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring created a near-riot when it premiered in Paris in 1913. Neither the music nor the dancing was like anything that audiences had seen before. Fistfights broke out among the spectators and their noise level was close to that of a modern rock concert. Three years earlier, Stravinsky was virtually unknown. He had had to overcome serious parental objections to even begin composing. Yet by the time that The Rite of Spring premiered, he was already famous for composing The Firebird and Petrushka. These three works—among his very earliest—remain his most popular. Stravinsky was a prolific composer for well over half a century, achieving success in a variety of musical styles. An exile from his native Russia for 48 years, he finally returned in 1962 to a great deal of acclaim. Many people consider him to be one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century.
