'"Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear!" said Piglet to himself. And he wanted to run away. But somehow having got so near, he felt that he must just see what a Heffalump was like.' Pooh and Piglet decide to catch a Heffalump together, but when Piglet meets one in the middle of the night, he realises that catching Heffalumps is much easier with two. Now available as an individual storybook with E.H. Shepard's illustrations. This story first appeared in A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, accompanied by E. H. Shepard's original illustrations.
A.A. Milne was born in London in 1882 and became a successful playwright and poet. He based Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and friends on the real nursery toys of his son Christopher Robin and published the first of their adventures in 1926. Since then, Pooh has become a world-famous bear, and Milne's stories have been translated into seventy-two languages.
E.H. Shepard was born in London in 1879. He won a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools and later worked for Punch magazine, as a cartoonist and an illustrator. Shepard's witty and loving illustrations of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood have become an inseparable part of the Pooh stories, and his illustrations have become classics in their own right.
