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.

And I hope you will continue writing poetry. Yours sincerely Christopher Milne".
