While we -Mki de Goodaboom, Truffle McFurry and me- were in Fowey, Cornwall recently, we came across this beautiful antique Winnie the Pooh bear.
I’m not a fan of the stylised Disney bear version which always looks superficial to me, but there was something about this one, sat forlornly in a window that exuded a certain tender gravitas and sweet melancholy, something that spoke of A.A.Milne.
It’s the best Winnie the Pooh I’ve seen!

Hallo everybody, Truffle McFurry here!
I am sorry that I was not writing very much in “Go Teddy”… I was so busy, travelling and writing a book! I will tell you about the book soon.
With my parents, the French artist Miki de Goodaboom and the English rocker Kev Moore, we went on a painting trip to Devon and Cornwall in England. it was fabulous! Mom and Dad came back very big, as they were having cream teas all the time, with tons of cream!
We saw many Teddies, because they love Teddies so much in England. But today it is not about Teddies, it is about The Gollies. I know they are a species in danger, but I have decided to take them under my protection the first time I saw one. It was Auntie’s Ann Golly, from when she was a little child. We are the best mates now. it was Auntie Ann who told me about them in danger.
In the lovely town of Truro in Cornwall, we met 3 Gollies. I asked my mom to paint them to show everybody how beautiful they are!
If you love the Gollies too, join us please!
Love you all
