The Lovereading4Kids comment

A. A. Milne's first stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, the most famous bear in the world, were published over eighty years ago. The popularity of Pooh and his Forest friends continues to endure with each new generation of children and their parents. Discover what happens when Pooh goes visiting and Piglet meets a Heffalump, not forgetting when Eeyore loses his tail and Pooh finds one! E. H. Shepard's witty and loving illustrations are reproduced in colour.

Our Guest Editor for December 2010, Sally Grindley:

"I am not talking about the Disney films – Pooh’s voice in those bears (sorry!) no relation to the voice I have in my mind when I read A. A. Milne’s wonderful stories. In fact, my mum used to read these to me and I could never get enough of them, especially the ones where Pooh and Piglet nearly catch a Woozle, Eeyore loses a tail, and Pooh gets into a tight place. Oh, and when Piglet meets a Heffalump. And then there’s the one about Tigger being unbounced. Who’s my favourite? I think it has to be Eeyore, but I do love Tigger too. The books should be part of every childhood, not the films."

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.
