Overview

Happy 90th birthday, to one of the world's most beloved icons of children's literature, Winnie-the-Pooh!
 
Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends—Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and the ever doleful Eeyore—have endured as the unforgettable creations of A.A. Milne, who wrote this book for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard, who lovingly gave Pooh and his companions shape. 

This box set contains four hardcover books: the two original Pooh novels, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and Milne's two poetry collections, Now We Are Six and When We Were Very Young, which features the very first appearance of Pooh.

About the Author

A. A. Milne was born in England in 1882, the third and youngest son of London schoolteachers. As a boy he wrote verses, parodies, and short humorous pieces for his school’s paper. He went on to study at Cambridge. In 1903 he left school to write. Before long he was supporting himself on his earnings, and became an editor at Punch magazine. In 1913 he married Dorothy de Selincourt. He began his military service in 1915 in Europe. During this time he wrote three plays, all of which were produced on the London stage. Christopher Robin Milne was born in 1920. It was Christopher’s toy bear, pig, donkey, tiger, and kangaroo that became the inspiration for the famous Pooh books. A. A. Milne wrote more plays, a novel, his autobiography, and political nonfiction, although he is best remembered for Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six. Milne died in 1956.

This is the same set, with all the beautiful illustrations that my son had 'when he was very small', the same set that my first granddaughter was given ten years ago, and that I am now buying for a new grandniece. Milne's stories are imaginative and transcend all ages. I can still sit and read these books and appreciate the art in my 50s! I would highly recommend this set of books for any child; for a parent to read to their baby, and later for a child to learn to read. The stories speak to children today as they did so long ago when Milne wrote them. A wonderful addition to anyone's library of fine literature and art.

I enjoy Winnie the Poo and friends as much now as when they were read to me as a child. So creative, so gentle and humorous, these books delight every child to whom I've given them. Even my grand-niece who's eight, enjoys them, although my fear was that she'd find them babyish. So many of the subtleties escape the understanding of young children, but entertain the adults reading to them!
