Description

They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace - Christopher Robin went down with Alice. Alice is marrying one of the guard. "A soldier's life is terrible hard," Says Alice. The poems that make up this collection are steeped in the history and culture of the British Isles and generations of British children have grown up with them. Now collected together in a beautiful new classic edition, this is the perfect memento of a trip to Britain or a wonderful gift for a christening or special birthday.

Author Biography

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.
