Book Review: Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the King

Title: Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the King

Written by: Jane Riordan

 Illustrated by: Andrew Grey

Published by: Farshore Books

When Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends go on an expedition to a Royal London Park they don’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a royal adventure. This charming story takes place at a very special Royal Coronation.

Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet lose Eeyore in the crowd so they come up with an ingenious  plan to find their friend. Along the way they meet a King Charles III and learn about the importance of kindness, helping others and new beginnings.

I was particularly impressed by the detailed architecturally accurate illustrations of iconic landmarks in London by Andrew Grey. This is a remarkable achievement when you consider the speed they must have been drawn to get the book published in time for the royal coronation.

There are some well chosen interesting facts thrown in such as the River Thames runs through London, King Charles III’s love of the environment, the thistle being the national flower of Scotland and the pelicans in St. James Park were a gift to King Charles II in 1664.

This classic character children’s book will make a wonderful keepsake to honour the historic coronation of King Charles III.

The ideal commemorative gift centred around a children’s character we all love.
