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.
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.
