Winnie-the-Pooh returns in the first official sequel to A.A. Milne's children's books, reported the Associated Press. It has been more than 80 years after the honey-loving bear first appeared in print.

The new book, Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, will be the follow up to A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh and The House At Pooh Corner.

The book will be written by David Benedictus and will hit the shelves on October 5.

We have been hoping for a good many years that we might one day be able to offer the world a sequel which would do justice to the original Winnie-the-Pooh series, said Michael Brown on behalf of the trustees of Pooh Properties.
