This beautiful new edition, re-designed for Pooh's 90th anniversary, brings together four volumes in one stunning slipcased gift book: Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six. A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh is nothing less than a true children's classic. Winnie-the-Pooh may be a bear of very little brain, but thanks to his friends Piglet, Eeyore and, of course, Christopher Robin, he's never far from an adventure.

This very special collection will delight fans of Winnie-the-Pooh young and old. Relive all your favourite episodes from the Hundred Acre Wood, brought stunningly to life with the iconic illustrations from E.H. Shepard. Also look out for The Best Bear in all the World, the new authorized sequel. 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. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, were based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. The seminal Winnie-the-Pooh was published in 1926.

About the Author

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. E.H. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.
Industry Reviews
Winnie the Pooh has always been a very special (albeit funny old) bear, not least of all because his books are filled with wonderful words of wisdom. * Stylist, 2017 *
