|A. A. Milne may not have intended to become a children’s book author, but his greatest creation, the honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh, is so much a part of the culture that one can scarcely imagine children’s literature without him. Milne created Pooh to entertain his son, Christopher, which he did – and millions of other readers as well.|
From the Publisher:
Presents stories of the adventures of Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, Owl, and other friends of Christopher Robin, along with early poems of A.A. Milne about the experiences of children.
Alan Alexander Milne, now known primarily for his books for children, was also an editor, poet, and playwright. Milne's father ran a boarding school out of the family home, which Alan and his two brothers attended. An excellent if somewhat distracted student, he later graduated from Trinity College at Cambridge University. His first book, LOVERS IN LONDON, was published in 1905, and the following year he was named an assistant editor at "Punch," the English humor magazine. He fought for the British Army during World War I and subsequently experienced a nervous breakdown. He and his wife, Dorothy (known to her friends as "Daphne") had one child, a son named Christopher Robin, in 1920. On his first birthday, the boy received an enormous stuffed teddy bear, which later became the model for Milne's most famous character, Winnie-the-Pooh. The first book about Christopher Robin and his stuffed animal friends, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG, was published in 1924; the four books that make up the series about Winnie-the-Pooh are still extremely popular.English illustrator Ernest Howard Shepard was encouraged to become an artist by his parents. Shepard's career began as an illustrator for the British humor magazine, "Punch." He is well known for illustrating A. A. Milne's WINNIE-THE-POOH and Kenneth Grahame's THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. In addition to these works, Shepard also wrote and illustrated two books of his own, BEN AND BROCK and BETTY AND JOE. In 1972 he received the Order of the British Empire.

Arrived quickly and in good condition.
Almost no effort was made to protect the book during transit - a stiff paper envelope and that's all. Upon delivery the parcel and the book inside appeared as though both had been run over by a heavy truck several times. Very disappointed.
