'Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders.' A. A. Milne's stories about Pooh and his friends have been loved by generations of children and their parents since Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. This magnificent slipcase features the four classic Winnie-the-Pooh titles: Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, Now We Are Six. Each volume features the original E. H. Shepard illustrations in full colour. This delightful collection is the perfect gift for Pooh fans aged 5 or 55. Look out for the the new authorized sequel, The Best Bear in all the World with brand-new stories from Paul Bright, Brian Sibley, Kate Saunders and Jeanne Willis - coming soon. The nation's favourite teddy bear has been delighting generations of children for 90 years. Milne's classic children's stories - featuring Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and, of course, Pooh himself - are both heart-warming and funny, teaching lessons of friendship and reflecting the power of a child's imagination like no other story before or since. Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. Whether you're 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages. A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children's authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children's books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writ
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 box the books come in is very sturdy and looks great. The books themselves come with colorful dust covers and sturdy binding.
This is the complete "Winnie the Pooh" set, so you'll be getting both of the story books and both of the poem books. These are great books to get your younger children into reading and I remember reading them to my sister when she was a baby hoping she'd like them too.
The books are fully illustrated with the ~original~ artwork (black and white) and are great to have with the story.
She was seriously injured in a bike accident on Mother's day, so surgeries, hospital and home at the end of school was a drag.
This gave her something new to focus on and got there fast, which was important!
Winnie the Pooh has been absorbed as part of our culture, in the process of which the original is almost forgotten. Everybody knows the Disney characters of Pooh, Tigger and Piglet. Very few remember the little boy, Christopher Robin, whose toys they were. It is a worldwide phenomenon. My son has a jigsaw puzzle of Винни Пух - a Russian transliteration, but with characters that bear no resemblance to either Milne's original or Disney.
I ripped the package open when it came in yesterday's mail, and read it to my two-year-old son well past the point at which he lost interest. It is an engrossing story, one what makes me want to keep on reading.
Five stars now, for the same reasons it was a five-star production in the early 20th century. It's worth buying a well-produced edition; these books will stand the test of time.
