Continuing on the celebration of all things Pooh Bear (because, shouldn't it really be Winnie-the-Pooh weekend rather than just Winnie-the-Pooh day (yesterday)?)...the CBC website posted 90 weird and wonderful facts about Winnie the Pooh and here are a few:
A.A. Milne's birthday is January 18th and is therefore Winnie-the-Pooh Day!
From Wikipedia: The first collection of stories about the character was the book "Winnie-the-Pooh" (1926), and this was followed by "The House at Pooh Corner" (1928). Milne also included a poem about the bear in the children's verse book "When We Were Very Young" (1924) and many more in "Now We Are Six" (1927). All four volumes were illustrated by E. H. Shepard.
Christopher Robin's toy bear, on which his father's character is based, was named after two different animals--a swan named Pooh and a black bear at the London Zoo named Winnie, after her first caretaker's hometown of Winnipeg.
More from Wikipedia: The bear cub was purchased from a hunter for $20 by Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear "Winnie" after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "Winnie" was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much-loved attraction there. Pooh the swan appears as a character in its own right in When We Were Very Young.
From Mirror World Publishing:
"We’re so excited to have Karen Koski join the Mirror World Family and we’re looking forward to bringing you her debut novel for middle grade readers: The Gimmal Ring."
The release date for The Gimmal Ring, a book set in Windsor, Ontario, is March 17th, 2019... here’s a quick description to hook you on it:
Gwendolyn Gimmal desperately wants an invitation to the mysterious Gimmal Gala where her family’s coveted ring is bestowed upon new inductees. She wants the ring and she wants it bad! Not that she particularly likes bling, but because she knows it will unlock exciting secrets and reveal what she believes will be her true life’s path. Her younger brother, Gage, also wants to attend the party, but mostly for the food.
After finding her way into the hidden gala, Gwen learns that The Gimmal Ring is not only a piece of jewellery, but also a secret society of people. Things go awry when their parents are kidnapped from the Gala and held for ransom. Gwen, and her three sidekicks, must solve the clues and find the hidden formula the kidnappers have demanded, by midnight, or they will never see their family again."
