Product Description

From Amazon

When Christopher Robin asks Pooh what he likes doing best in the world, Pooh says, after much thought, "What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying 'What about a little something?' and Me saying, 'Well, I shouldn't mind a little something, should you, Piglet,' and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing."

Happy readers for over 70 years couldn't agree more. Pooh's status as a "Bear of Very Little Brain" belies his profoundly eternal wisdom in the ways of the world. To many, Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and the others are as familiar and important as their own family members. A.A. Milne's classics, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, are brought together in this beautiful edition, complete and unabridged, with recolored illustrations by Milne's creative counterpart, Ernest H. Shepard. Join Pooh and the gang as they meet a Heffalump, help get Pooh unstuck from Rabbit's doorway, (re)build a house for Eeyore, and try to unbounce Tigger. A childhood is simply not complete without full participation in all of Pooh's adventures. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author

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. Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. 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 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!). 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. In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to see the classics live on Jan. 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
There is no way Disney's b*stardisation of A A Milnes characters is anything even close to the original. These stories and poems are works of art and it bothers me that they are so degraded by association with an unorignal cartoon very much pitched at the commercial realm and the lowest common denominator. But the originals live on. Do yourself and your children a favour. Buy this book. Introduce them to good literature and stories of timeless (and ageless) appeal. Turn off the TV and read to them. Then, when they go to bed, read them for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding collector's book. March 23 2004
Format:Hardcover
I got this for my wife (A Pooh fan if there ever was one) when she was six months pregnant with our son. She absolutely loved the classic illustrations, and reading through the book once myself the writing is quite good. I've been reading from this book to my now two-year old son about once or twice a week (I work nights =/) when I am able to when he is in bed ready to go to sleep, and we both enjoy the quiet bonding time while I read to him. He doesn't quite understand everything, but enjoys the rather bad attempts by me to give each character a different sound/voice/accent, but of course he can't tell it's bad. ;)
We keep this book out of his reach in a very special area, and plan to give it to him when he has his own child as a family heirloom. The book itself is beautiful, wonderfully crafted and illustrated, clearly worth saving for future generations. If you like Pooh and company at all, get it, you won't be dissapointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Later July 3 2001
Format:Hardcover
This is a fine keepsake edition, complete with a bookmark ribbon and the fine stories and illustrations that inspired Mr. Disney to make a feature length animated movie. Adults and older kids will be able to appreciate it. HOWEVER, it is large, heavy, and difficult to hold open, especially when you have two active children and only two hands. For physical youngsters who MUST have pictures, this poses a problem which is compounded by the poor picture to text ratio, as well as the smallness of some of the illustrations. In addition, the book`s very size seems to intimidate them: they love some of the same stories, poems, and illustrations (more generously dispersed) in the very much slimmer Pooh`s Bedtime Book. My boys, at five and seven, now (we`ve had it for a couple of years) are still not ready for the big dust-collector. Ask yourself first, who this is for: you, or the kids?

5.0 out of 5 stars Winnie the Pooh. May 19 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
These wonderful children's stories were a great favourite of mine as a child. They've been passed down through my children, grandchildren and now to my great grandchildren. Thank you for keeping them still available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very British! Oct. 22 2003
Format:Hardcover
I gave The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh to my older daughter for her 10th birthday. She reads portions of it to her younger siblings. This is one of her favorite, most cherished books.
Don't be deceived into thinking that Pooh is just for toddlers and pre-schoolers. The humor is very intelligent, and the characters are just plain wonderful. It is written in a very British style, which I think makes it a great introduction to English literature for children.
This is a true masterpiece, and would make a good gift for anyone who truly loves good literature, no matter what their age.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice edition Sept. 26 2009
By Meg
Format:Hardcover
This book contains "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The Tales at Pooh Corner", which were originally the two collections of stories featuring Pooh. It may be interesting for you to know that the author also wrote two poetry books featuring some of the characters from these tales, "When We Were Very Young" and "Now We Are Six" (not included in this volume as they do not contain tales, but poems), that are also worth reading.

I was surprised myself when reading the Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh by how cute and quaint it was, how pleasing it could be for adults as well as for children to read, and how different from the Disney versions it was, even when the same episode was told.

It is a beautiful edition, with Sheppard's illustrations in full colour and a nice cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars "complete tales" better for adults than kids Jan. 8 2001
Format:Hardcover
I would offer nothing but the highest praise for Milne's classic tales of childhood imagination, but...
I humbly suggest that one should buy the individual books if you are intending them for a child's own library: The shorter books are long enough, and they will give the child a feeling of accomplishment when they finish each book, and will also give the impression that there are more stories alltogether.
Dutton Children's Books has also published ten individual books by breaking the Winnie-the-Pooh books into stories (e.g. "Piglet Is Entirely Surrounded by Water" and "Pooh Goes Visiting"), unabridged and with Shephard's original illustrations, published by Dutton. Perfect for your youngest readers.
That said, if you are looking for something for your own library of for an adult reader, by all means, buy this book!

I love this and my toddler does also. My son loved Winnie the Pooh when he was little, so I had several books, but someone gave me this for my little girl, and she just loves it and I found that it was better than the others I already had.
