“`Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic is a new exhibition opening Saturday at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibit addresses the fact that Winnie-the-Pooh is a global phenomenon.

“`This exhibit is divided into five themes examining how  A. A. Milne and illustrator E. H. Shepard brought Winnie-the-Pooh to life in print. Pooh became a sensation.  The exhibit is compiled of almost two hundred original drawings, letters, photographs, and early editions on loan from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and other lenders. It is is wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

“`While the original Winnie-the-Pooh four-book series were published nearly a century ago, the narrative of a befuddled bear and his adventures with Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Rabbit remains essential with families and youngsters.  The first, When We Were Very Young, was published in November, 1924; the last, House at Pooh Corner, came out in October, 1928.

“`Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic runs through January 6, 2019 at the Museum of Fine Arts.
