A. A. Milne - Author

About the Author

A.A.Milne was born in London in 1882. He began writing as a contributor to Punch magazine, and also wrote plays and poetry. Winnie-the-Pooh made his first appearance in Punch magazine in 1923. Soon after, in 1926, Milne published his first stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, which were an instant success. Since then, Pooh has become a world-famous bear, and Milne's stories have been translated into approximately forty-different languages. 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. To do the illustrations for 'Winnie-the-Pooh', Shepard observed the real Christopher Robin Milne, but not the real Pooh. The bear in the pictures is in fact based on Growler, a toy belonging to Shepard's own son.

Winnie-the-Pooh: Gloom & Doom for Pessimists

Author: A. A. Milne Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2018

Piglet explained to Tigger that he mustn't mind what Eeyore said because he was always gloomy; and Eeyore explained to Piglet that, on the contrary, he was feeling particularly cheerful this morning. Eeyore is one of Winnie-the-Pooh's most deep-thinking friends and his thoughts usually turn to the gloomy side of things.

Winnie-the-Pooh: Doubt & Disquiet for Worriers

Author: A. A. Milne Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2018

'What?' said Piglet, with a jump. And then, to show that he hadn't been frightened, he jumped up and down once or twice in an exercising sort of way. It's hardly surprising that Piglet, a Very Small Animal, should find the Hundred Acre Wood a rather alarming place. Full of nervously twitching ears and an extreme lack of pluck, this is the perfect gift for those of an anxious disposition.
