Fans of A. A. Milne's beloved children's books are familiar with the real-life Christopher Robin and the stuffed bear that inspired Winnie-the-Pooh. Now meander through Pooh's physical world with this handsomely illustrated exploration of England's Ashdown Forest, the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood. Landscape historian Kathryn Aalto begins with biographies of Milne and his longtime collaborator, illustrator E. H. Shepard, before leading readers through the village and farm the Milnes called home, then deep into Ashdown Forest. Explore the stream where Christopher Robin and his friends discovered the North Pole, Roo's sandy pit, Galleons Lap (real name: Gills Lap), and more, along with the lush flora and fauna still to be found in the forest today. Whether you're inspired to visit Ashdown in person or happy to explore it from the comfort of your own corner of the world, The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh is a lovely guide. (KG)
