Description

Contained in this treasury, are all the stories and adventures of Pooh and his dear friends, plus two volumes of poems. I'll admit, I didn't care for all of the poetry in here, but that is normally the case with me anyway. I much rather preferred the stories. He married Dorothy "Daphne" de Sélincourt in 1913, and their only son, Christopher Robin Milne, was born in 1920. In 1925, A. A. Milne bought a country home, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex. During World War II, A. A. Milne was Captain of the Home Guard in Hartfield & Forest Row, insisting on being plain 'Mr. Milne' to the members of his platoon. He retired to the farm after a stroke and brain surgery in 1952 left him an invalid and by August 1953 "he seemed very old and disenchanted". Goods that by reason of their nature, cannot be returned - (Items such as underwear, where the 'hygiene patch' has been removed, or cosmetics where the seal has been broken).

The familiar characters, Pooh, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Christopher Robin and the sparse appearances of Tigger are solid complex characters. Of the many surprises I encountered, the two that stood out were the dark undertones at the start of the story which introduced Kanga and Roo to the forest, which also presents the dark side of Rabbit’s character, this turns up again in a second tale.There’s two volumes of poetry which didn’t really do it for me, I’m not an appreciator of poetry but it doesn’t really tarnish the book because the strength of the tales with Christopher Robin and co are story enough to keep anyone happy, and yes, as expected, the conclusion of the tales was very sad.

After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour. During World War II, Milne was one of the most prominent critics of English writer P. G. Wodehouse, who was captured at his country home in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse made radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the light-hearted broadcasts made fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge on his former friend by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in some of his later stories, and claiming that Milne "was probably jealous of all other writers.... But I loved his stuff." Alan Alexander Milne (pronounced /ˈmɪln/) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems. Parents can have plenty of fun reading these books too. Whether it’s a feeling of nostalgia or using different accents to represent the characters and animals in the book, reading these short stories out loud with children is a lovely way to bond and encourage their development in reading or listening skills. There are many routes and plots to be explored that prompt children’s imagination and emotions, with both ups and downs but in a playful way. A.A. Milne 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, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!). Observations of little 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). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory. In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.

The nation's favourite teddy bear has been delighting generations of children for 90 years. Milne's classic children's stories are both heart-warming and funny, teaching lessons of friendship and the magic of children’s imaginations. The Winnie the Pooh collection of stories by A.A. Milne was published in 1926. Milne wrote the stories for his son Christopher whose toy animals were the footing for the characters. Christopher also became the main character that looked after the animals. Winnie the Pooh, sometimes referred as simply Pooh or Edward Bear is delightful, friendly, lovable who very much enjoys lots and lots of honey. A. A. Milne was born in Kilburn, London, to parents Vince Milne and Sarah Marie Milne (née Heginbotham) and grew up at Henley House School, 6/7 Mortimer Road (now Crescent), Kilburn, a small public school run by his father. One of his teachers was H. G. Wells who taught there in 1889–90. Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. While there, he edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine. He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's work came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later an assistant editor.This is a gem that every serious collector should have in their library, it's a treasure to be unveiled when in the company of an unsuspecting wide eyed child with an insatiable appetite for adventures and lessons on the importance of friendship and kindness to animals and the environment.
