Synopsis

A.A.Milne by Harriet Castor

Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. This book describes the life of the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, some of the best-known animal characters among children all over the world. The reader learns how it all started by the author enjoying telling stories to his son Christopher, and how it was the young boy's beloved stuffed animals - which included a bear, a piglet, a rabbit and a donkey - that became the inspiration for his characters. The narrative also tells how Milne was a successful playwright before he was a children's author, how the characters got their names, and where Christopher's toys are now.
