Product Description

Amazon Review

This is A.A. Milne's second volume of verse about Christopher Robin and his friends. From short simple rhymes like "Solitude" to the longer poems, such as "King John's Christmas", there is a poem to suit any storytelling session. With E.H. Shepard's original illustrations in colour, this is an attractive and entertaining book for adults to share with young children. --Philippa Reece --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.

Format: Paperback
I have just brought Milne's exquisite book for my daughter's sixth birthday as my father did for me and his father for him and she has already fallen in love with King John, the Good and Bad Bears and Shepherd's ever delightful illustrations and enjoys reading the classic poems to her array of bedtime toys as much as hearing them herself. These are not just cutes rhymes for those too young to have learnt discernment, Milne is a genius when it comes to choice of topic - as appealing to children now as it was four generations ago - and of using the essential 3R's of any classic for young children: repetition, rhythm and rhyme.
That other essential element required to male a child's book "classic" - that adults must enjoy reading it themselves - is also present; it was lovely to hear again the old favourites and to see the pleasure I felt at six reflected in the face of my own offspring. This book is a must for any family's bookshelf, as is its 'prequel' "When We Were Very Young". Make sure you but the hardback though, by the time my two younger brothers had passed six years, my own paperback had disintegrated with overuse.

I am now 51 years old and still remember many of these wonderful children's poems, despite not having read these book now for almost 20 years.
If you want your children to have the sort of memories they will cherish and the sort of children's poems that they will learn by heart and repeat over to their children and their grandchildren, then this book and its sister volume "When We Were Very Young" are a must.
Highly recommended!

I first received this book when I turned 6. I bought it again for my daughter's 6th birthday this year. The poetry is timeless and talks about the simple concerns of the young. I believe it is the best introduction to poetry for young children.

A children's classic; we like to give it as a sixth birthday present. My older granddaughter liked to have individual poems read aloud to her, but the younger one read it straight through herself. Good for any child who likes books, although some may appreciate more when they are a little older.

Bought this for our new Great Nephews. Still have my own original version - 60 years on from the day I received it.
A wonderful collection of delightful poetry and illustrations.
I can still recite most of them from memory.
Hope it becomes as well loved and well worn as my own original !
Wonderful !
