With a mad craving for honey and twisted logic that would make Douglas Adams scratch his head till it’s sore, Winnie-the-Pooh is a creature of great passion and terrible ideas. Too bad he’s the only one who can save his home and all his fuzzy friends. The Hundred-Acre Wood will be taken over by the biggest belching honey plant that the industrial revolution ever spawned, and in three days, Pooh’s pals will all be kicked out for big-hive development. Their only hope: prove they have the deed to the land. That’s no problem; the deed is right over there in the honeypot. Oh bother, where did Pooh put it? Detective Pooh decides to head to a beehive, but many many bee stings makes Pooh delirious. Ah, there’s the solution! The vast honeycombs he seesbefore him lead to … the future! A brand-new series of Pooh adventures to enthral old and new alike, by one of the minds behindi conic series like Angry Birds and Sesame Street.
