Hardcover with dustjacket, 243 pages, illustrated.

An old but still enjoyable copy of this delightful A.A. Milne collection.

"This book contains the complete 'WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG' and 'NOW WE ARE SIX' brought together here in one volume, illustrated throughout with E.H. Shepard's original line drawings, which have become classics in their own right."

The world of Christopher Robin is a world of childhood - gay, rollicking, imaginative - a world of reality and enchanting make-believe.

It is a world in which Christopher Robin and Alice watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and where James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree takes great care of his Mother, though he is only three. In this timeless wonderland, the Little Black Hen is much too busy to lay eggs for anyone (except Christopher Robin), and the three little foxes play in the forest, keeping their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes. The King plaintively asks for butter for the Royal slice of bread. And at the end of an active day, a little boy kneels at the foot of his bed: Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares! Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

Here in one irresistible volume you will find When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, the two collections of verses which A. A. Milne wrote for his only son - verses that are cherished by everyone who has had the good fortune to become acquainted with them.

Of course, Pooh, that remarkable bear, refuses to stay out of these pages, even though he has two books of his own. But his appearance here should cause no surprise. After all, he belongs. For as Christopher Robin is fond of saying, Wherever I am, there's always Pooh, There's always Pooh and Me."
