Well, this is very disappointing. After my weekend post eulogising E H Shepard and his illustrations of Winnie the Pooh, someone has drawn my attention to a story about how much Shepard hated his drawings towards the end of his life and even referred to his creation as a ... shock horror gasp ... 'silly old bear'. Must admit that's almost worth the let-down. What a wonderfully pooh-ish thing to say!
