Author Info
A. A. Milne
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.
From the Publisher
Editors Note The adventures of Christopher Robin and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood include Pooh Bear using a balloon to get honey, Piglet meeting a Heffalump, and Eeyore having a birthday. Reissue.
Annotation Every last comforting, amusing story and poem about Christopher Robin and his world of stuffed animals--including Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, and Tigger--can be found collected together in this massive, delightful volume. The little golden bear's accident-fraught quest for honey opens the WINNIE-THE-POOH stories. Throughout the book, new characters are introduced as Pooh gets himself into all sorts of absurd situations. THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER ushers in the first encounter with that sweet, manic, striped fellow Tigger. Humorous, fanciful poems follow in two books of poetry, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG and NOW WE ARE SIX. This joyful romp is accompanied by Ernest H. Shepard's original line drawings and watercolors.
