Russian Winnie the Pooh

Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” by David Benedictus is the first authorized sequel to A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh tales and many commented on Benedictus’ introduction of a new character, the otter “Lottie.” Some are not a fan. I haven’t looked at it so can’t say whether this is a positive addition or yet another cynical attempt at cashing in on a popular franchsie. What I do know is that this old televised Russian version of Winnie the Pooh or “Vinnie Puh” is spectacular. Finally, all that Russian I took in high school is coming in handy!
