Fat Nation  The Big Challenge

Life Lessons from Winnine-the-Pooh - One hundred ideas to nuture your Inner Bear. (Egmont £10.99) ISBN 1 4052 1203 9
Practical tips and advice inspired by Pooh to help you lead a happier, healthier life.

Visit Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, Kanga, Roo and Christopher Robin in the Hundred Acre Wood. Your trip could prove to be the perfect antidote to modern living.

Endorsement from a reader:

As a fan of Pooh I have long thought that A.A. Milne's writing has much to offer adults as well as children. I also believe that the last paragraphs of 'The House at Pooh Corner' are amongst the most poignant and moving in English literature.

I recently visited Ashdown Forest for the first time and the 'Enchanted Place' was true to the name.

I have only recently returned to work after a long period of absence due to something of a mental breakdown. Friends and relatives have been wonderfully supportive and, not surprisingly, 'self-help' books etc. have figured high on the agenda. Your book is the best I have seen. I have no idea what motivated you to use the appropriate, moving and often hilarious quotes from 'Pooh' but you were truly inspired.
