The perfect classic illustrated children’s gift book to celebrate the King’s Coronation 2023
Jane Riordan originally trained to be a primary school teacher but her love of children’s books led to a career in publishing. Since then, she has edited and written countless books for children, most notably Winnie-the-Pooh Goes to London and Once There Was a Bear.
‘Winnie-the-Pooh has always been a very special (albeit funny old) bear, not least of all because his books are filled with wonderful words of wisdom.', Stylist magazine Reviews for ‘Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the King’: ‘That much loved little bear Winnie-the-Pooh is on a trip to London with his chums Eeyore and Piglet in Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the King, a colourful coronation story for slightly older children aged five or six. Clutching his acorn snack, Winnie climbs up to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to get a good view and he meets – well who do you think! The newly crowned King asks Winnie if he may have the acorn snack to plant in the palace garden. Of course he can – and by the way where’s Eeyore? This gentle tale, written by Jane Riordan and Andrew Grey, would, I think have won the approval of AA Milne and EH Shepard.’, Newburytoday ‘If you’re looking for a royally memorable keepsake of the coronation, turn the pages of this classic illustrated gift book as Winnie-the-Pooh makes a special appearance and charms everyone… including the king!’, Lancashire Post ‘Winnie-the-Pooh has always been a very special (albeit funny old) bear, not least of all because his books are filled with wonderful words of wisdom, and an irrepressible sense of youthful fun that never ages or fades.
