ニュースからの引用です
2009 will see the return of one of the world's best-loved fictional characters, Winnie the Pooh. The loveable bear was created by British writer A.A. Milne and first appeared in a book in 1926. Milne only wrote two novels about Pooh's adventures, the last being "The House at Pooh Corner" in 1928. Eighty years later, those in charge of the Pooh name allowed the publication of a sequel. The third book will be called "Return to the Hundred Acre Wood". It will hit bookstore shelves on October the 5th and should be an instant bestseller. Many people predict it will be the biggest seller of the year. The Pooh books have been translated into 50 languages. In 1966, the Walt Disney company started making movies about Pooh and turned the character into a household name.
The author David Benedictus wrote the new book. He described it as "an honour to have my sequel to the original stories approved". He added "I hope that the new book will…maintain Milne's idea that whatever happens, a little boy and his bear will always be playing." Mark Burgess, a spokesperson for the Pooh Trustees, said he was sure the new book captures the spirit of the two books written eight decades ago. He said "We hope that the many millions of Pooh enthusiasts and readers around the world will embrace and cherish these new stories as if they had just emerged from the pen of A.A. Milne himself." Mr. Burgess explained how important Pooh is, saying "The original books are one of the greatest celebrations of childhood in any language."
