This book is truly in a class of its own - the best biography I have ever read. Ann Thwaite appreciates Milne's unique talent and versatility - docutmenting in full his plays, sketches, essays, poems, novels, autobiography, work on pacifism and, of course, children's books. Ann Thwaite's book is so readable because she clearly loves Milne's books, whether she is dealing with his life (as the title suggests) and therefore him as a father and husband, or his professionaly life, or childhood, Thwaite deals with each topic in a stylistic and researched manner. Nobody should read the Winnie the Pooh books until they have read this!
