Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seventy-five years ago, a certain stuffed bear came down the stairs, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. This bear was, of course, Winnie-the-Pooh, now loved by millions of readers the world over.

Winnie-the-Pooh made his first appearance in 1924 as Edward Bear in When We Were Very Young, Milne's first collection of poetry for children. In 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh, a collection of stories about this rather stout, somewhat confused bear, was published. These delightful poems and tales — starring Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, and the others — were an immediate success and established A. A. Milne, already a noted playwright, as a major children's book author. Another volume of poetry, Now We Are Six, was published in 1927. In 1928 a second collection of stories, The House At Pooh Corner, continued the adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood and introduced the lovable, bouncy Tigger.

This lavish volume brings together all the Pooh stories and all the poems in one full-color, large-format book. The texts are complete and unabridged, and all of Ernest H. Shephard's original illustrations — each hand painted in gentle watercolors — are included. Here are the classic stories, loved by generations, of Pooh stuck in Rabbit's doorway, of gloomy Eeyore and his nearly forgotten birthday, of bouncy Tigger's search for breakfast, as well as the oft-read poems — "Buckingham Palace," "Rice Pudding," "Us Two," "Disobedience," and so many more.

Simple in structure and lasting in insight, Milne's works hold something for readers of all ages. This classic edition is one to collect and treasure.

Synopsis:

This 75th anniversary collector's edition presents Milne's complete stories and verse on Winnie the Pooh in one deluxe volume. Features a color bookplate, headbands, and foil stamping. Full color.
