Book Description

June 2008
Alan Alexander Milne (1882-1956) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children’s poems. After graduating from Cambridge in 1903, he contributed humourous verse and whimsical essays to the British humour magazine Punch, joining the staff in 1906 and becoming an assistant editor. During this period he published 18 plays and 3 novels, including the murder mystery The Red House Mystery (1922). In 1924, he produced a collection of children’s poems When We Were Very Young. However he is most famous for his two Pooh books Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928), about a boy named Christopher Robin and various characters inspired by his son’s stuffed animals. Amongst his other works are Once a Week (1914), The Sunny Side (1921) and The Dover Road (1922).

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage British humor Sept. 26 2012
By Elfnotes - Published on Amazon.com

This appears to be a collection of magazine or newspaper columns written around 1912. So if you enjoy dated, "veddy British" humor,it's a pleasant read. The style is similar to some of Agatha Christie's early mysteries; perhaps she enjoyed Milne's writing as well. If you enjoyed the original Pooh stories and haven't been poisoned by Disneyfication, you'll like the gentle satire.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not particularly interesting July 4 2012
By MamaSylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
eBook downloaded free from Gutenberg. Collection of short stories featuring mostly family events.

While some of the stories had mildly amusing endings, none were particularly interesting. I got halfway through, thinking there would surely be a gripping storyline in here somewhere. There wasn't, and I quit. The title had NO connection to anything in the book. There were some minor spelling/grammar errors but nothing major.

Looked like a fun read from the author of Winnie the Pooh. Haven't made it all the way through yet but so far so good.
