Winnie-the-Pooh and the Wrong Sort of Bees

CLASSIC. Adapted from the story “Winnie the Pooh and Some Bees” by A.A. Milne. In this story within a story, A.A. Milne tells his young son, Christopher Robin, a bedtime story about his stuffed bear, Winnie-the-Pooh. Out of honey, Winnie-the-Pooh hears a buzzing sound coming from a tall oak tree. He assumes there must be bees nearby, and therefore honey, since “the only reason for being a bee…is making honey.” Pooh devises a plan to trick the bees into thinking he is small black rain cloud so that he can take their honey. Pooh rolls around in the mud to make himself look like a dark cloud and borrows Christopher Robin’s blue balloon to float to the top of the oak tree, where the hive is located. Meanwhile, at Pooh’s request, Christopher Robin marches back and forth under the tree and repeats, “Tut-tut it looks like rain” to help Pooh deceive the bees. Young audiences of all ages will love this charming classic. Perfect for touring.
