Fulsomely inscribed by the real Christopher Robin

Rare presentation copy of the 50th anniversary edition, number 27 of 300 copies signed by Christopher Robin Milne. This copy has been fulsomely inscribed by Christopher Robin to the winner of "The Hum with Pooh" poetry competition:"Dear Mubina Punjani, this book tells you that you have been awarded First Prize in your age group in The Hum with Pooh Competition. What I would like to add is that I thought your poem the best of all the entries in all the age groups - and some came from people older than Pooh himself. Well done! And I hope you will continue writing poetry. Yours sincerely Christopher Milne".

Winnie-the-Pooh, one of the great classics of 20th century children's literature, was first published in 1926; this handsome edition commemorates the 50th anniversary of its publication, bound in leather and signed by the original Christopher Robin, A. A. Milne's son and the inspiration for the stories.
