New Pooh in August

It’s not a new Harry Potter novel, but it will have to do while that we wait for that series' next movie. In August, Dutton will publish Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, the first authorized sequel to the Winnie-the-Pooh books in years. The author is David Benedictus, who finally prevailed upon A.A. Milne’s estate to let him write a book. “We thought David had a wonderful feel for the material,” a Pooh trustee tells The Wall Street Journal. “No doubt some will say it's not as good as the original, but it's very good, and we're pleased with it."
