Winnie-the-Pooh
work by Alan A. Milne ( writer ) and Ernest H. Shepard ( illustrator ) in 1926

Four more stamps are issued together with the set from the previous post, Pooh and Me.  I always thought this child was a girl, but in fact it is a boy, A. A. Milne’s son Christopher.

『くまのプーさん』の切手は先に紹介した絵だけの6枚と、文章も載せているこの4枚がセットです。わたしは『くまのプーさん』の文章を読んだ記憶がなく、絵を見て女の子だと思っていたのだけど、作家の長男でクリストファーという名前の男の子でした。
