Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"This writing business. Pencils and what-not. Over-rated, if you ask me. Silly stuff. Nothing in it." But somehow, despite Eeyore's strong opinion about the word business, Winnie the Pooh has changed the face of children's literature -- and brightened children's faces for 80 years now. This laudable record for longevity is recognized in this tastefully designed deluxe edition, which features a specially designed gold ink cover with a die-cut window that reveals the full-color art on the case cover. The text and Ernest H. Shepard's immortal illustrations are printed in full color on cream-colored stock. Three cheers for Pooh!
Publishers Weekly
Judging by his smooth, superior performance here, British actor Broadbent may well have spent lots of time in Milne's Hundred Acre Wood. To generations of children who know the Disney-fied version of these characters, Broadbent's Pooh will sound slightly more buffoonish than merely daffy (as Pooh appears in so many of the Disney animated films). However, this new interpretation is well in keeping with the author's creation of the Bear of Very Little Brain. And Pooh's sweet and loyal attributes are never tarnished. Via Broadbent's treatment, the beloved gang that includes enthusiastic Tigger, agitated Rabbit, melancholy Eeyore and, of course, level-headed Christopher Robin, journeys through a series of familiar adventures and maintains a place of honor in the children's audiobook canon of classics. This recording joins those by the late Charles Kuralt as some of the best adaptations of the material. Ages 5-up. (Oct. 2003). Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
Fans of the Hundred Acre Wood can celebrate Pooh's 75th birthday with collector's editions of Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. Both books contain A.A. Milne's complete text as well as b&w decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Dressed up for the party, each book features a redesigned jacket plus gold and silver gilded page edges, respectively. Each is sold separately, but they can be purchased together in a sturdy slipcased set. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

From Barnes & Noble
Here's where Pooh's adventures all began. Published in 1926, this is the original Winnie-the-Pooh with illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. Beginning with "Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees," here are ten classic tales featuring the whole gang: Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, Little Roo, and Christopher Robin. Rmember when Pooh visits Rabbit and "gets into a tight place" as he attempts to enter Rabbit's house? Remember Eeyore's very eventful birthday party? Piglet's water-filled rescue? The beloved stories are all here, as A.A. Milne wrote them more than 70 years ago.

Meet 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.

Biography

It seems strange that A. A. Milne would have not have wanted to be associated with one of literature’s most beloved characters. Having achieved some success as a playwright and novelist, he aspired to be more than only an author of children’s books.

However, Milne’s books -- Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, and the verse collections When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six -- are hardly typical of most stories for kids. They remain among the smartest of the genre, and were likely written as much for himself as for his young son, Christopher. Infused with a sly wit, they contain humor that only an adult can appreciate; indeed, some of the poems in When We Were Very Young first appeared in the satiric magazine Punch, where Milne was an editor.

Rendered by illustrator Ernest H. Shepard in quaint, warm watercolors, Pooh and friends Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Owl, Eeyore, and Piglet star in stories about playing games and helping friends in and around their home near “100-Aker Wood.” In one instance of Milne’s ironic humor, a sign outside Owl’s residence reading “PLES RING IF AN RNSER IS REQIRD” is attributed to Pooh’s boy companion Christoper Robin, “who was the only one in the forest who could spell.” The books are written with sophistication and a certain amount of dry British wit, employing turns of phrase (“customary procedure,” “general remarks”) not usually found in children’s stories.

The volumes of verse range over a wider collection of themes, with Pooh appearing in just a few poems. Most of them offer a young person’s perspective on subjects such as imaginary friends, feigning illness, and going to the zoo; and it’s evident how Milne’s work prefigures that of Dr. Seuss (From Going to the Zoo: “There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons/A great big bear with wings/There’s sort of a tiny potamus/A tiny nossarus too”). Other poems feature cowardly knights, buffoonish Sirs, and other fantasy figures.

Little of Milne’s work for adults, which included the autobiography Year In, Year Out and his first novel, Lovers in London, can be easily found in print. One adult title, however, is still being published: the pleasing Gosford Park-style Red House Mystery.

Pooh, meanwhile, continues to grow as a powerful franchise, with modern-day titles, animation, and games that are almost as delightful as Milne’s original texts -- but not quite.

Good To Know

Milne did not set out with any particular desire to write for children: The Pooh books were originally intended for the real Christopher Robin, Milne’s son.

Milne’s teacher and mentor was the scientist and writer H.G. Wells.

He edited Cambridge’s undergrad paper, Granta, and was later the assistant editor of Punch.

Milne wrote several plays that are no longer published, but were once quite popular, including as Mr. Pim Passes By and the Kenneth Grahame adaptation Toad of Toad Hall.

    I am a life-long fan of Pooh and the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood. As an adult, I love giving this book and its companions as a gift to other adults. I guarantee you will recognize at least one person you know in the personality of each character in these charming stories!

    Thourghly Enjoyed By Generations

    This is a classic book, probably the best piece of children's literature ever written. I am 14 and I remember the times my mom used to sit in the middle of the floor in my bedroom and read to me. It was and still remains my favorite. It is a great book that I hope will be around when I can sit in the middle of the floor in my daughter's room and read it to her too.

    Philosophy in imaginary characters.

    At the tender age fo 55, I finally ready the REAL winnie-the Pooh, ans was not disappointed, The characters are well thought out, though simply, and the sometime hidden messages and philosophies are beyon comparison. One can read this at 7, and then re read it evry so often, and get more each time. An absolute treasure!

    Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Christopher Robin, Owl, Kanga and Roo (Tigger isn't introduced yet)

    I believe that Winnie-the-Pooh is an exceptional book for people of all ages. Although the book may not be challenging and demending of a person with an exceptional ability to read, it is still enjoyable. Winnie-the-Pooh is a heartwarming tale of a bear of very little brain, and the adventures he shares with his wonderful friends. This book truly brings out the meaning of how good a true friendship can be.

    True American Childrens Literature

    This book is a must.The story of Winnie the Pooh and his friends eore, piglett, and rabbit is great for a person of any age or weight. I love reading it to myself on cold rainy days and to my 16 children when they are scared or the roof is leaking. I suggest quitting any sport, for example, Cross Country, and studying this book. It is truly a piece of American literature.
