More About the Author

A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch.

Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!).
Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pooh Bear and friends 19 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What is not to like! I read this to my Granddaughter, who loves listening to it, just as her mother did. Can't get any better. Is a great little volume with original drawings (before Disney got hold of Pooh!)

A collections of poems that I loved when I was a child. Great to re-visit them and to savour AA Milne's fun with language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully read and very entertaining 1 Jun 2010
By Cathy
Format:Audio CD
Although I suppose these poems could be considered 'old fashioned', Miranda Richardson really breathes new life into them. My five year old daughter absolutely loves them for 'bedtime listening'. She also learnt Lines in the Street for her poetry recital at school this year (next time it's the Kings Breakfast - great fun!). Highly recommend this CD as a great introduction to these poems.
