Publisher Comments:

Edward Bear, better known as Winnie-the-Pooh, has delighted readers both young and old for some seventy-five years — ever since his memorable encounter with Some Bees.

This handsome gift edition reproduces the original Winnie-the-Pooh, first published in 1926, with the timeless words written by A. A. Milne for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard's unforgettable black-and-white illustrations. Join Pooh and his friends — Piglet, Owl, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo, Eeyore, and, of course, Christopher Robin — as they go adventuring in that most special place, the Hundred Acre Wood.

This keepsake volume of A. A. Milne's beloved tales introduces us all over again to the world of Pooh, inhabited by a Bear of Very Little Brain with a generous heart.

Synopsis:

The Best Bear in All the World is an octogenarian! Readers are invited to celebrate with this specially designed edition with a die-cut window on the cover. Full color.

Synopsis:

This deluxe anniversary edition is the perfect way to celebrate the enduring popularity of this classic work.

Happy 80th birthday, Pooh! The Bear of Very Little Brain and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood have delighted generations of readers since Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. This deluxe anniversary edition of Winnie-the-Pooh is the perfect way to celebrate the enduring popularity of A. A. Milne's classic work. The interior features the unabridged text and Ernest H. Shepard's charming illustrations in full color on cream-colored stock. It is an impressive package for new fans and collectors both. Three cheers for Pooh!

About the Author

Ernest H. Shepard was born in 1879 in London. His father was an architect and his mother who died when he was ten years old was the daughter of a notable watercolorist. It was she who first encouraged young Ernest to paint and draw. Art became Ernest's passion, and after attending Heatherly's Art School and the Royal Acadamy Schools, Shepard supported himself by drawing for the illustrated papers and by illustrating books.

In 1903, Shepard married Florence Chaplin. Florence was a mural painter and fellow student at the Academy. The Shepards had two children: Graham, who was killed in World War II, and Mary, who later illustrated Mary L. Travers Mary Poppins books.

When World War I broke out, Shepard served in France, Belgium, and Italy, attaining the rank of Major. On his return to England, he continued with his art. He became a regular contributor to Punch, the classic British humor magazine, where he met A. A. Milne, a man who was to be instrumental to his career. Shepard was elected to the editorial board of Punch, and shortly thereafter, he agreed to do the illustrations for Milne's first book of verse, When We Were Very Young.

The illustrations that Shepard created for all four of the Pooh books received worldwide acclaim. For the next thirty years, he continued to illustrate books for both adults and children. In 1973, for the first time, he added color to his drawings for Winnie-the-Pooh. Shepard ultimately donated several hundred drawings to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Ernest H. Shepard continued to pursue his love of drawing until his death in 1976. copyright ? 2000 by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers. All rights reserved.

Seeing Winnie return is like preparing to welcome an old friend back to our lives.

Every character, in the Winnie The Pooh series, portrays a positive trait, worth emulating, and every story, while most absorbing, also teaches.

What a delight for children, parents, grandparents, and teachers, and what an inspiration for current day writers of kid's literature.
