Quotes & Awards

  • “Peter Dennis’ British accent and gentle, friendly storytelling manner bring the author and his family story times to mind. Dennis is definitive as each character: a no-nonsense rabbit, an especially gloomy Eeyore, an efficient yet loving Kanga, and a snorting Piglet. This recording is a family treasure.”

    " I read this book aloud to my seven-year-old daughter, and I had never read any Winnie the Pooh aside from board books, which are really just bits and pieces. This was wonderful! I loved it, and I cannot wait to find more. I think this was the second, and I know a sort of sequel was recently published, though not by the same author, of course. I did read a favorable review of it, so I may try it after I find the original Winnie the Pooh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jemima | 1/19/2014

    " It doesn't matter how old you are, the stories of the Bear-with-little-brain and his friends are endearing to all ages. What was surprising to me was the heart breaking ending that can be interpreted in a lot of ways, but to me was all bout leaving the Hundred Acre Wood behind for good because growing up is inevitable. I thought it was the saddest thing I ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 1/15/2014

    " A.A. Milne is a brilliant author. He is so entertaining, for children as well as adults. Possibly the best children's books ever! Great for reading aloud with the family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 1/15/2014

    " Ahh the feeling of being young and having adventures just outside your backyard. The feeling that everything is yours and open. Alan Alexander Milne has a way of making childhood feel safe and heartbreaking. Pooh and his friends bring a smile to my face and an ache to my heart because in the end you must say goodbye to childhood and hello to the world of possibilities outside your imagination. But, there is a strong and comforting knowledge with childhood endings, you can always look back and remember the feeling of everything be kind and fun and yours, because, although you may forget childhood it never forgets you. "

    " Wow. So charming. I was coming to these stories fresh, never having read the stories as a child. Sharing them with my son was amazing. The writing is clever without being precious. Plenty going on in the writing to entertain both children and adults. Marvelous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek Gentry | 11/10/2013

    " I just finished reading this to my (nearly eight-year-old) daughter last night, and I was struck by how much these books have to offer grown-ups that wasn't accessible to me as a kid. It's a heartbreaking little book, without the cutesy quality of the umpteen animated adaptations. "

    " If you haven't read this book you haven't lived. The philosophy in this children's book still amazes me. I don't know how i understood so much of it when i was so young. A.A. Milne taught me what it means to have and be a good friend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Rogers | 9/2/2011

    " Without having read these as a child, these are really hard to read aloud unprepared. Nonetheless, Pooh's constant concern over his stomach and the various idiosyncrasies of each character make them endearing. I wonder how much Calvin & Hobbes was drawn from these concepts? "

    " We read the first two in the series, but even though Gabriel was entertained by the books, he wasn't enthralled by them. He can take or leave Edward Bear aka Winnie-ther-Pooh. He does seem to like Tigger though--must be because they are both so bouncy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisbeth | 6/11/2007

    " Christopher Robin Milne is said to have complained bitterly that his childhood was co-opted by his father, and critics decry the books for being too "precious." But for me, at 10 or 11, the pre-Disney Pooh stories and two small volumes of poetry were beyond reproach. "

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).
