Winnie-the-Pooh is quite possibly the world’s most famous bear. Pooh was the teddy bear of Christopher Milne, and his father, A.A. Milne, made him the main character in two children’s books that he wrote, entitled “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “The House at Pooh Corner.” As a character, Pooh tends to be a bit on the slow side (his head is full of fluff, you know…a common occurrence among teddy bears) but his heart more than makes up for that. Pooh has a love of honey (or, hunny, as it is sometimes spelled) and often creates little tunes, or hums, about most anything at all.
