Signed and dated in ink lower right by Shepherd, 1961 and inscribed by Shepard lower middle "Tiggers don't like honey". This image was first used for The House at Pooh Corner, first published in 1928, page 23. "Tigger took a large mouthful of honey... and he looked up at the ceiling with his head on one side, and made exploring noises, and what-have-we-got-here noises... and then he said in a very decided voice: 'Tiggers don't like honey.'
'Oh!' said Pooh, and tried to make it sound Sad and Regretful." Together with a two-page autograph letter signed, dated 21 June 1961, to Miss Shirley: "I send you two drawings that I have specially made for your school library... most of my illustrative work is done in pen and ink... I like to keep my original drawings", signed Ernest H. Shepard.
