A.A. Milne's masterpieces of childhood…

“When you are a Bear of Very Little brain, and you Think Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.” – Winnie-the-Pooh

Celebrated as among the greatest achievements in children's literature, the Winnie-the-Pooh books of A.A. Milne and illustrator E.H. Shepard have been cherished by children around the world ever since their publication in the mid-1920's.

And not only children. Milne’s witty wordplay and keen insights are prized by readers of all ages. Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and the rest of the books' characters have become iconic archetypes, and scholars and thinkers use Milne's stories to explore sophisticated ideas and theories.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present: The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh, a leather-bound Collector's Edition.

The most beautiful single-volume collection of Winnie-the-Pooh.

A.A. Milne was already a successful novelist, playwright, and poet when he began writing verses and stories for his young son, Christopher Robin, and it was the boy's menagerie of toy stuffed animals – a pig, donkey, tiger, kangaroo, and, of course, a bear – that inspired Milne's greatest creation.

From the start, Milne worked with artist Ernest H. Shepard (who would later draw the beloved illustrations for another masterpiece, The Wind in the Willows) and their collaboration is regarded as among the most successful in the history of children's books.

The combination of Milne's masterful writing and Shepard's brilliant portrayal of movement and mood – Pooh’s gentle clumsiness, Eeyore’s saggy body and melancholy, Tigger’s overconfident bounce, Piglet's anxiety and pride – make their landmark books uniquely delightful and compelling.

The Collector's Edition The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh is a gorgeous single-volume compendium of A.A. Milne's four classic children's books – When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, and Now We Are Six – all complete and unabridged with E. H. Shepard's beautifully hand-colored final versions of his original illustrations.
