Über den Autor
A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House school - but never intended to be a children's writer. He fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920. 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).
This high quality edition of the original Milne and Shepard work is an essential title for every child¿s library. 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 fist 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.
