The Lovereading4Kids comment

This beautifully produced slipcased edition was specially created to commemorate the recent 75th anniversary of the publication of the very first stories about Winnie the Pooh. It consists of the classic, much-loved, tried and tested stories by A.A. Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shepard: Winnie the Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, the poetry from When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six. This is a book that together parent and child can pore over for hours. A must for the nursery bookshelf.

Winnie the Pooh Collection (slipcase edition) by A.A. Milne

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.
