Winnie-the-Pooh may be a Bear of Very Little Brain but this adorable little book is teeming with Wise Words and Useful Advice. With topics ranging from the 'Art of Disguise' to 'Gastromic Disappointment', this humorous book gives you Pooh's unique take on life. Based on the classic Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A. A. Milne and featuring E. H. Shepard's delightfully charming illustrations. A lovely gift for a friend or an ideal stocking filler. Look out for: Winnie-the-Pooh: Eeyore's Book of Gloom; Winnie-the-Pooh: Love from Pooh; Winnie-the-Pooh: Tigger's Little Book of Bounce. 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 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 wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920. 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). E. H. Shepard famously illustrated both Winnie-the-Pooh and The Wind in the Willows though, like A. A. Milne, much of his career was devoted to work for the satirical magazine Punch.
