Pooh Sticks first came to prominence when it was described in A.A. Milne's book The House at Pooh Corner and the movie Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore. Pooh accidentally drops a pine cone into a river from a bridge and, after observing how it appeared on the other side of the bridge, devises the rules for Pooh Sticks.

Mike Ridley, owner of 'Pooh Corner' in Hartfield, wrote a very nice booklet about this game. This booklet 'The official Pooh Corner Rules for Playing Poohsticks' was written in 1996 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the publication of 'Winnie-the-Pooh'.
