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 All the orginal stories and poems in one book! 20 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Anyone, young or old, who likes the stories and poems of Pooh bear, really should own this book. The wonderful stories, the great illustrations and all the characters with their naive (but often so very right-on-the spot) child-logic. There are so many books about Winnie the Pooh available, but this one contains all the original stories and poems that A.A. Milne wrote about Christopher Robin, Pooh and all there friends. What is so great about this book too, is that almost all (also original) illustrations are in full colour. A must-have for any adult who wants to introduce his/her child to the wonderful world of Pooh Bear (or just is an adult with sweet memories about Winnie the Pooh.... like me).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value!!! 31 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A 30 book for 1p + 2.80 postage can't be bad!! (A large format heavy book, hard back + D/J, 432 pages with beautiful coloured illustrations & all 'W the P' poems & stories).

I bought this for my work with residents in the Care Home where I work (excellent for reminiscence & poetry sessions) & I was so impressed with the book I immediately checked out Amazon to see if there were any more at the same price! Just one! So I've got one for myself now! and it's in even better condition than the first one that I bought (which itself was excellent!)

Must be the best value purchase I have ever made.
