The adventures of Pooh, Piglet and friends in an exquisite illustrated edition.
Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself…
In the 1920s, A. A. Milne published a series of stories – first told to his son Christopher Robin – about a bear called Winnie-the-Pooh. Since then, the lovable bear has occupied a special place in the hearts of readers all over the world. This stunning edition has been lovingly reproduced with full-colour illustrations to celebrate the magic of both A. A. Milne’s stories and the artistry of E. H. Shepard.
‘What?’ said Piglet, with a jump. And then, to show that he hadn’t been frightened, he jumped up and down once or twice more in an exercising sort of way.
Some books speak as profoundly to adults as they do to children. The characters Milne created – Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, Roo and Tigger – have become a part of countless childhoods, and are equally loved by adults. From the ‘wobbly spelling’ and almost absurdly funny conversations, to the enchanting hand-coloured illustrations of E. H. Shepard, Winnie-the-Pooh provides page after page of incomparable pleasure. Adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood include rescuing Pooh from a tight situation, discovering the North Pole and saving Piglet from the Great Flood in an upturned umbrella.
This edition also features 64 black-and-white sketches by E. H. Shepard, making it the perfect way to experience the world of Pooh.
