A new character called Lottie the Otter is to grace the new Winnie-the-Pooh book, publishers have announced.  
 
The much loved bear's new friend, who appears in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, is said to be a "feisty" character who will cause a stir.  
 
The first official follow-up to AA Milne's The House At Pooh Corner, written in 1928, will reveal what happened next to Pooh and friends.  
 
The book is due to be published on 5 October in the UK and US.  
 
The book, which features 10 new stories, is expected to become available in 50 languages around the world.  
 
Lottie, who will feature alongside established favourites including Tigger and Eeyore, is also said to be good at cricket and is a stickler for etiquette.
