Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection “A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics,” the thirty-five poems and verses from Now We Are Six performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne’s son, Christopher Robin.

The verses here, along with those in When We Were Very Young and the stories in Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, have endeared themselves to so many readers that it is painful to try to imagine what the world would be like without them.

The perfect book for that all-important birthday, Now We Are Six is much more than a worthy successor to When We Were Young; it is a modern classic in its own right.

About the Author

Alan Alexander Milne (1882–1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in lighthearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four he became assistant editor of Punch. After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children’s literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It’s Too Late Now (1939).
