Product Description

This collection contains the very first stories by A. A. Milne from Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928), and the poems from When We Were Very Young(1924) and Now We Are Six (1927).

The characters of Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo are based upon the real nursery toys belonging to A. A. Milne's son Christopher Robin, and their adventures are set in the Ashdown Forest where Milne and his family lived.

The artist, E. H. Shepherd, lovingly depicted the Forest and the toys in his illustrations, and the places he drew can still be seen today.

The Complete Collection was originally published in 1994. This beautiful slip-cased edition has been produced to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the publication of the very first stories about Winnie-the-Pooh.

About the Author

A.A.Milne was born in London, in 1882. He began his writing career with humorous pieces for Punch magazine. He also wrote plays. By the time his first book of poems for children was published in 1924, he had already made his name as a dramatist and novelist. Milne always acknowledged that it was his wife, Daphne, and his son, Christopher Robin, who gave life to the nursery animals which were the inspiration for his stories, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner.

E.H. Shepard, born in 1879, became known as the ‘Man who drew Pooh’, but was also an acclaimed artist in his own right. Shepard won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Arts, and later, like Milne, worked for Punch magazine as a cartoonist and an illustrator. Shepard’s illustrations of Winnie-the-Pooh and the friends of the Hundred Acre Wood have become classics in their own right and are recognised all over the world.

A.A Milne

Alan Alexander "A.A." Milne (18 January 1882 – 31 January 1956) was the author of the original Winnie the Pooh series of books, illustrated by E.H. Shepard.

These books included the original Winnie-the-Pooh, as well as The House at Pooh Corner. Milne was also noted novelist, poet and playwright, though he remains to a large degree most widely known for the stories he wrote for his son, Christopher Robin Milne, about a "tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff" named Winnie the Pooh.

The characters in the story were based on Christopher's toys.
