Winnie The Pooh – NYC Public Library

Mishy connecting with Pooh

The original animals

Inside New York City’s Public Library’s main branch lives the original animals, minus Roo, which were the inspiration for A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories. They are housed in a small room inside the Central Children’s Room, which is on the second floor. (Roo was lost somewhere in Sussex, unfortunately.) It is wonderful to see the original and then the inspired versions which are painted on the walls in the small room. This is a must see for anyone touched by the stories of Pooh, Piglet, Kanga, Eyeore and a surprise late addition to the family of animals I will not name 🙂 You just have to go and see it for yourself.
