When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, which brought A. A. Milne fame as a children's book author and introduced the world to Winnie-the-Pooh, are paired for the extremely first time in one deluxe, full-color gift edition. The perfect companion volume to The Total Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh, though much more than worthy in its own right, this book provides the complete collection of delightful verses and fanciful rhymes of A. A. Milne's two classic volumes of poetry, which happen to be read and reread to generations of young children. Inspired by the author's young son, Christopher Robin, and featuring, of course, his great friend Winnie-the-Pooh, Milne's poems are timeless celebrations of childhood. The Total Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh is sure to locate an honored place on each family's bookshelf. They offer readers a magical world exactly where reality and imagination intertwine--a world perfectly rendered in Ernest H. Shepard's enchanting illustrations.
"'Let's frighten the dragons,' I stated to Pooh. And the rest is history! / 'I'm not afraid,' I stated to Pooh, / And I held his paw and I shouted, 'Shoo! / Silly old dragons! / 'That's right,' said Pooh to Me. This hefty, full-color volume brings together all of Milne's verses, unabridged. And for those young readers to whom Pooh is new, these innocent, gently humorous, 70-year-old poems--along with The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh--will nonetheless resonate deeply. '--and off they flew,"says Christopher Robin in A. A. Milne's well-loved poem"Us Two. (All ages) --Karin Snelson If you fondly remember"James James / Morrison Morrison / Weatherby George Dupree / Took great / Care of his Mother, / Though he was only three,"from"Disobedience,"or"Ernest was an elephant, a great big fellow, / Leonard was a lion with a six-foot tail, / George was a goat, and his beard was yellow, / And James was a truly modest snail,"from"The Four Friends,"this fabulous collection will send you into a dreamy reverie. That's about when his wife Daphne envisioned her son's stuffed Harrods bear, tiger, pig, kangaroo, and donkey as characters in a children's book. By 1924, Milne had published When We Were Very Young, a whimsical collection of verses illustrated in gentle watercolors by Ernest H. Shepard; Now We Are Six, a second collection, followed in 1927."Milne (1882-1956) didn't start writing for kids until 1920, when his son, the genuine Christopher Robin, was a year old.
