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.

Product Description

About the Author

A.A. Milne A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children’s authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children’s books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writings for Punch magazine, A.A. Milne met E.H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne’s classics, earning him the name “the man who drew Pooh”.

A lovely version of this classic series with original illustrations. We chose separate books rather than one big volume to make it easier for smaller hands to hold. Very pleased with the product.

Very funny and sometimes wise stories about winnie the pooh and his friends. The books "now we are six" and "when we were very young" contain nice poems. I can recommend those books. wonderful stories to read to your child.

What can be said? It's Pooh, it's classic, it's brilliant. The days before Disney turned Christopher Robin into a girl!(see the current computer animated cartoons).

I grew up listening to the Winnie the Pooh stories, and even got to read part of one of them at my sister's wedding last year. I love the presentation of this box set and love looking through the books. They bring back so many lovely memories. All so brilliantly written, and ready to be enjoyed by children and adults alike!!

Beautifully printed and altogether satisfying; it is a pleasure to have them all in one collection.
Children's books which are perhaps even more appreciated by "grown-ups"!

Bought this set for one of my grand daughters. I think it will become much loved, as I loved the stories and poems and as did her mother. The original illustrations do much to counter the disneyfication of these delightful books.

Bought this for my 6yr old granddaughter, as she has recently learnt to read, and I wanted her to enjoy the old favourites I read to her Mum years ago. We all loved this set. Small children feel very grown up having a boxed set they can arrange and replace by themselves. All three generations are now prompting each other to remember the next lines of the poems, making it something we can all share, and my daughter and son in law admit to reading on, for their own enjoyment, long after their child has gone to sleep! Only reservation is that printing is quite small, especially if you are reading in low light at bedtime. Coloured illustrations are fabulous though.

A present for my mother in law, she wants to practice her English, so these books are really what she was looking for.
