All of the Original Pooh Characters Together
At Last in New York City in their permanent home
at The New York Public Library.
These are the very animals Christopher once
played with in Ashdown Forest (inspiration for
the Hundred Acre Wood), patches, rips, dirt,
and all. Some characters, like Rabbit and Owl,
were made up for the stories,
while little Roo was lost long ago.
