Winnie the Pooh translated into Scots

August 8, 2008

James Robertson, who is an award winning author and editor of Itchy Coo imprint which is well known for publishing books written in contemporary Scots, has recently translated A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, into Scots. James Robertson said "I grew up with the Pooh stories and loved their gentle humour, descriptions of the seasons and countryside and occasional ventures into the absurd, and of course Ernest Shepard's brilliant illustrations.

Originally published in 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh is regarded as being classic children's story book. Featuring Pooh Bear, Owl, Eeyore, Piglet and the other characters of the Hundred Acre Wood, this version is a combination of A.A. Milne's tale & E.H. Shepard's illustrations, even as Piglet, Eeyore and Owl are named Wee Grumphie, Heehaw and Hoolet respectively.

Itchy Coo has published Winnie-the-Pooh in paperback, priced at £6.99.
