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."
Meet the world's favourite bear in this delightful collection, in which Pooh gets into a tight place, nearly catches a woozle, and discovers the wrong sort of honey - amongst other things.

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, ...More About A.A. Milne
