The Lovereading4Kids comment

A. A Milne's stories about Pooh and his forest friends have been loved by generations of children and their parents since the publication of the first book of stories, Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926. Pooh first appeared as a character in Milne's poetry, but it was the timeless tales of the Hundred Acre Wood that struck a chord with readers- and continues to do so today.

The collection of stories and poems in this edition are essential titles for every child’s library, and will be cherished by young and old alike. The famous bear truly is The Bear for All Ages.


Winnie the Pooh: the Complete Collection of Stories and Poems by A.A. Milne

This beautiful new slip-cased edition has been produced to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the first appearance of Pooh, as ‘Edward Bear’ in one of the poems in When We Were Very Young, and contains all four original Milne/Shepard books.

The perfect gift for christenings, birthdays or Christmas.

Included are stories from Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner and poems from When We Were Very Young and Now We are Six.

About the Author

A.A. Milne

A.A. Milne (1882-1956) 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.
