Christopher Robin's a girl

James Lileks on what kids like and don't like.

This year the new Pooh series will introduce a six-year old girl in Christopher’s stead. I’m sure she’s spunky and adventurous and kind and empowered, and I’m just as sure my daughter will find her boring, because kids can smell pedantic condescending twaddle nine mile off.
Winnie The Pooh in the hands of Disney is degraded. I have never bought or shown to the kids anything they've done with it. And now this! I'm offended. Can't someone be beheaded?
