Got this as a gift for my god daughter who wanted to walk down memory lane on her own at the ripe old age of 9. Its a beautifully done book. The illustrations are perfection. I love that its the old Pooh and not the Pooh images of the television age. Fabulous book! Read full review

I gave my first Winnie the Pooh to my first grandchild so I had to replace it for the later grandchildren who want me to read to them. As much as I loved the copy I had read to their parents I am glad ... Read full review

About the author (1996)

A prolific writer, A. A. Milne published 35 plays, 6 novels, 3 books of verse, 3 collections of short stories, and several works of nonfiction, including sketches for Punch magazine, of which he was the assistant editor. Nevertheless, his fame rests on four books for children: two of whimsical stories about the stuffed animals in his son's bedroom (Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner) and two of verse (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). All are considered classics and have been included among the Children's Literature Association's Touchstone books as the best in children's literature, on the Lewis Carroll Shelf list, and on the Choice magazine list of books for the academic library. He also wrote Toad of Toad Hall, a play based on Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, and Once upon a Time: A Fairy Tale for Grown-ups, both of which are sometimes included in volumes with the four classic works. Milne had a son, Christopher Robin, who served as the model for the little boy in his children's books.
