Christopher Robin is the only human in the Hundred Acre Wood, and although he is a small boy, all the creatures look up to him for advice and friendship. No one, however, is closer to him than Winnie the Pooh, and the two have had many adventures together.
Christopher Robin is well aware of Pooh's habit of getting into sticky situations-he's often heard calling his friend a "Silly old bear!" But no matter what predicament the gang drums up, Christopher Robin is always game to play along-even if it means racing to their rescue. Of course, they're always there for him, too, just like friends should be. In fact, Christopher Robin couldn't imagine better friends.
