Publisher Comments:

When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six complete the four-volume set of deluxe editions of the Milne and Shepard classic works. Like their companions, the Winnie-the-Pooh 80th Anniversary Edition and The House At Pooh Corner, these beautiful books feature a ribbon bookmark, a specially designed jacket with metallic ink and a peep-through window to the full color case, and full-color artwork on cream-colored stock. The imaginative charm that has made Pooh the world's most famous bear pervades the pages of Milne's poetry, and Ernest H. Shepard's witty and loving illustrations enhance these truly delightful gift editions.

Synopsis:

When We Were Very Young, the first of A.A. Milne's four world-famous books for children, introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends, and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time. For sheer delightfulness the children's rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves, with their charm, humor, and understanding — to say nothing of their irresistible rhythms. Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations are an important complement to the verses. A.A. Milne has here created a book of proven classic quality, a book that goes straight to the heart.
