The Complete Winnie-the-Pooh
|Author:||A. A. Milne|
The complete Winnie-the-Pooh brings together two of A. A. Milne's best-loved stories: Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. It is illustrated throughout with the original black and white line drawings by Ernest H. Shepard. When We Were Young and Now We Are Six contains two of A. A. Milne's classic collections of verse.
A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House school - but never intended to be a children's writer. He fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920. 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).
