The adorable Prince George is the newest character to appear as himself in a new Winnie the Pooh story.
To celebrate his Grandmother’s 90th birthday, a new story has been written and illustrated featuring the much loved children’s book character, Winnie-the-Pooh, who also turns 90 this year.
The story is called Winnie-the-Pooh and the Royal Birthday and includes Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, Eeyore and Piglet. The characters meet Prince William and Kate Middleton’s adorable 2-year-old son, Prince George, after Christopher Robin and Co. decide to go to London to honour the Queen’s birthday with a red balloon.
After arriving at Buckingham Palace they meet the young Prince who is holding hands with his mum Princess Kate. Winnie-the-Pooh gets to meet the queen who is dressed in her trademark colour blocking style.
“Behind The Queen ran a little boy. He was much younger than Christopher Robin and almost as bouncy as Tigger,” the story reads, describing Prince George. “He caught sight of Piglet and the balloon and he jumped up and down in delight.”
“The little boy patted Piglet fondly and tickled Winnie-the-Pooh’s ears,” it continues on. “Piglet handed him the beautiful balloon and he giggled and skipped away with it.”
The gorgeous story was released on Thursday and is available as a free download. It was written by Jane Riordan and illustrated by Mark Burgess.
