Book Description

8 May 2014

Every one of A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories and poems in one stunning gift book.

Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn't.

Anyhow, here he is at the bottom, and ready to be introduced to you. Winnie-the-Pooh. As warm, funny and enchanting as he was nearly 90 years ago, the “bear of very little brains” is truly one of the world’s classic children’s characters.

In this beautiful slip-cased volume, all four of A.A. Milne’s books – Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six – are accompanied by E.H. Shepard’s iconic illustrations. Share Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and all their friends for generations to come with this gift book worth cherishing.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Amazon.co.uk will donate £1 from every copy of this book sold* to the National Literacy Trust (Registered Charity No 1015539). This is to support the "Reading Is Fundamental, UK" initiative, promoting the fun and fundamentals of reading by providing free books for children.

Winnie the Pooh: The Complete Collection of Stories and Poems was originally published in 1994, but this beautifully produced slip-cased edition has been specially created to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the publication of the very first stories about Winnie the Pooh.

It consists of the classic, well-loved, tried-and-tested stories by AA Milne, from "Winnie the Pooh" (1926), "The House at Pooh Corner" (1928) and the poetry from "When We Were Very Young" (1924) and "Now We Are Six" (1927).

Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn't. Anyhow, here he is at the bottom, and ready to be introduced to you. Winnie-the-Pooh.
So begins the opening sentences of chapter one of this wonderful book "in which we are introduced to Winnie-the-Pooh... and the stories begin".

Although the stories are aimed at young children, older children (i.e.,adults!) of all ages will be able to recapture the wonderful Pooh stories of their childhood, remembering once again playing at Pooh sticks, reading about Hundred Acre Wood and finding out why Edward Bear is called Winnie-the-Pooh. Was he really named after a swan?

The poems are not as well-known as the Pooh stories, but nevertheless some of them are ones to which children can still relate today, even though they were written 75 years ago when, in some circles, nannies and nurseries were commonplace.

This exquisite book will make an excellent gift for young and old alike. --Susan Naylor

From the Back Cover

AA Milne, born in 1882, based the characters of Pooh Bear, Eeyore the Donkey, Piglet, Tigger, Kanger and Roo on his son, Christopher Robin's real nursery toys. The Milne family live in Ashdown Forest and the stories of their adventures are based there. By the time his first book of poems for children were published in 1924, he was already an accomplished dramatist and novelist, and previously he had also published humorous writings for Punch Magazine, including the poem "Teddy Bear" (eventually published in "When We Were Very Young")
A Bear, however hard he tries, Grows tubby without exercise, Our Teddy Bear is short and fat, Which is not to be wondered at; He gets what exercise he can, By falling off the Ottoman, But generally seems to lack, The energy to clamber back...
EH Shepard, born in 1879, while being remembered as "the man who drew Pooh" was an acclaimed artist in his own right and also worked on Punch magazine as a cartoonist and illustrator. His drawings and illustrations of Winnie-the-Pooh are classic and are known and loved the world over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal gift 16 Feb 2009
By Jane
Format:Hardcover
Bought this as a christening gift and the parents were really happy with it. (The baby is too young to appreciate it yet!)

It looks good and of course contains all the Winnie the Pooh stories and the ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS by E H Shepard which were so lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice book to own 10 Jan 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Whether you have been brought up on Pooh or not it's good to have all the stories you knew, and even some you didn't, in one book.
Nice and big and good bedtime reading, maybe a bit heavy for kids to take to bed, but I'd say if you wanted to get Mum or Dad a present for having read them to you a few years ago, this nicely presented book with it's solid slide-in box cover would be perfect!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful edition, bad printing 13 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is likely the most handsome edition of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories published in recent decades. Unfortunately, the printing of the illustrations (apparently reproduced from at least two or three different sources, or using vastly different scan settings) is less than stellar. Throughout the first book (Winnie-the-Pooh) and much of the second (The House at Pooh Corner) the drawings are either pale or have a distinct yellow tint, or both. The two collections of poems fare much better. It's a shame really, since otherwise the book is beautifully put together. Ironically, in the American complete edition, published by Dutton, the color balance is fine but the saturation is way too high, giving the pictures a candy-flavored appearance...

As a fan of Winnie the Pooh throughout my childhood, i was delighted to find this treasury. A A Milne's character & poems are brought to life by the brilliant illustrations and artwork. My copy will be passed down a few generations at least...a must for all Pooh fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah... The Great Tales Of Winnie The Pooh 7 Jan 2005
Format:Hardcover
This is a Truly Brilliant Book!!!!! Im 16 and I still love Winnie The Pooh. The stories are always Funny and Interesting the Characters Loveable. Its truly a classic children's tale and should be read to all children. Nowadays all children do is watch TV Children Programmes But I think that Stories Should Have The Equal share in a Child's Enjoyment. For They Promote and Encourage a truly active Imagination.
This Book Is The Best Example of Classic Childhood Story Telling. Its Just So Involving and Fun, Its Unbeatable. (That's My Rant) This Book is Full amazing Illustration great tales and will be a firm source of bedtime reading for Many Weeks To Come!!
