Review: Winnie-the-Pooh and the Royal Birthday - Inspired by A.A. Milne & E.H. Shepard (A brand new & free Winnie-the-Pooh story to celebrate 2 very special 90th birthdays!)

As Her Majesty The Queen celebrates her official 90th birthday, a very special bear is also celebrating 90 years.

This October we’re celebrating Winnie-the-Pooh’s 90th anniversary, which marks 90 years since his first arrival in the Hundred Acre Wood. With Her Majesty The Queen and Winnie-the-Pooh both celebrating 90 years, it only seems fitting that these two much-loved British icons should finally meet.

Step into the unforgettable journey of Pooh and his friends as they travel from the Hundred Acre Wood to London, to deliver their thoughtful 90th birthday presents to The Queen.

From riding on an open-top red bus, to taking in the sights including Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace, your family can enjoy Pooh’s latest adventure by downloading Winnie-the-Pooh and the Royal Birthday HERE

2016 is the year when 2 British icons share a very special birthday. Yes thats right, both the Queen and Winnie-the-Pooh are 90 this year and to celebrate Egmont have teamed up with Disney to give fans a very special story where two well loved characters finally get a chance to meet face to face for the first time.

Pooh meets the Queen

You can download the free illustrated ebook Winnie-the-Pooh and the Royal Birthday from the Disney website HERE. Or if you prefer you can watch the video version of the story being read by Jim Broadbent on YouTube (I've also embedded the video below to make it easier for you).

This is such a fun little story and the illustrations by Mark Burgess are absolutely gorgeous (just check out the examples I've included!). Join Pooh and some of his friends as they travel to London to celebrate the Queen's birthday and bring her a very special present.

It doesn't get much more British than viewing 
Big Ben from the top of a double decker bus!

Or watching the Changing of the Guard at
Buckingham Palace

Piglet even gets to meet Prince George!

What a wonderful way to celebrate both Pooh and the Queen's 90th birthdays.
