About the Author

B.D. Cottleston is the pretend name of a real writer who wants to leave it to listeners to enjoy these stories without worrying about what they were thinking when they were written. As a life-long fan of Winnie the Pooh, this author picked this pen name to celebrate the spirit of Pooh’s greatest rhyme. As Pooh might say: "Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston pie. A fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly. Ask who B.D. is and we’ll reply: Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston pie."
