This charming collection of stories and poems, selected from A.A.Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young & Now We Are Six, tells extraordinary tales of a Boy and his Bear, accompanied by E.H.Shepard's beautiful illustrations. Set for release in August 2018 (US), Christopher Robin is a live-action film that follows a grown up Christopher (Ewan McGregor) as he reunites with his childhood playmates Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit and many more - returning to The Hundred Acre Wood for the first time since he was a boy. This collection is the perfect companion for fans of the film, teaching lessons of friendship and reflecting the power of child's imagination.

About A. A. Milne

A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch. Observations of little 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). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory. In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.
