Description

Curl up with A. A. Milne's classic book of poetry for children, When We Were Very Young. This is the first volume of rhymes written especially for children by Milne - as popular now as when they were first written. Featuring E. H. Shepard's original illustrations, this collection is a heart-warming and funny introduction to children's poetry, offering the same sense of humour, imagination and whimsy that we've come to expect from Milne's favourite books about Winnie-the-Pooh, that Bear of Very Little Brain. 

Author description

A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children's authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children's books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writings for Punch magazine, A.A. Milne met E.H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name "the man who drew Pooh".
