Description

They've all of them said 'Good-night'. So – here I am in the dark alone, There's nobody here to see; I think to myself, I play to myself, And nobody knows what I say to myself; Here I am in the dark alone, What is it going to be? Winnie-the-Pooh knows all about thinking grand thoughts, playing fun games and saying wise words to himself. What better companion could there be to read about as you snuggle down to go to sleep. 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 and Now We Are Six, tells enchanting tales of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, accompanied by E.H.Shepard's beautiful decorations. It is the perfect timeless bedtime treasury to read before you go to sleep and dream of the adventures to be had in the days to come. The Goodnight Collection follows on from The Christopher Robin Collection in making the stories and poems more accessible to new readers of Winnie-the-Pooh with it's playful approach to the text and illustrations, showing the fun and imagination behind the classic stories. Do you own all the classic Pooh titles? Winnie-the-Pooh The House at Pooh Corner When We Were Very Young Now We Are Six Return to the Hundred Acre Wood The Best Bear in All the World Once There Was a Bear The nation’s favourite teddy bear has been delighting generations of children for over 95 years. Milne’s classic children’s stories – featuring Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and, of course, Pooh himself – are gently humorous while teaching lessons about friendship and kindness. Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. Whether you’re 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages.

Author Biography:

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, for which he became Assistant Editor. Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A.Milne's life. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne in 1920. 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. 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.
