This is an account of the boyhood of Christopher Milne, the model for A.A. Milne's Christopher Robin, the child who never grows old, and the burden that it sometimes put on him as he grew older and tried to escape from the image of his father's creation. At the same time it is an evocation of a happy childhood spent in London and Sussex in the '20s and '30s, painting a portrait of A.A. Milne and describing the background to the children's poems and stories that are now world-famous.

Christopher Robin Milne was the son of author A.A. (Alan Alexander) Milne and Dorothy de Selincourt. As a young child, he was the basis of the character Christopher Robin in his father's Winnie-the-Pooh stories and in two books of poems. Christopher Milne was a shy boy and did not like the attention that he received from the public because of his father's success with the Pooh books. In 1974, Milne decided to publish the first of three autobiographical books. The Enchanted Places gave an account of his childhood and of the problems that he had encountered because of the Pooh books.
