Happy 90th birthday, to one of the world's most beloved icons of children's literature, Winnie-the-Pooh!
Return to the Hundred Acre Wood in A.A. Milne’s second collection of Pooh stories, The House at Pooh Corner. Here you will rediscover all the characters you met in Winnie-the-Pooh: Christopher Robin, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Kanga, tiny Roo, and, of course, Pooh himself. Joining them is the thoroughly bouncy and lovable Tigger, who leads the rest into unforgettable adventures.
Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends have endured as the unforgettable creations of A.A. Milne, who wrote these stories for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard, who lovingly gave Pooh and his companions shape.
These characters and their stories are timeless treasures of childhood that continue to speak to all of us with the kind of freshness and heart that distinguishes true storytelling.
The adventures of Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh, and all their friends in the storied Forest around Pooh Corner. "This is an example of a sequel in which there seems to be no letdown, and from all sides I catch echoes of most joyous reaction to it." --- New York Herald Tribune, 1928

A. A. Milne was born in 1882 in London. He was a playwright and journalist as well as a poet and storyteller. His classic children's books were inspired by his son, Christopher Robin. Milne died in 1956.
Ernest H. Shepard was born in 1879 in England. His pictures of the Pooh characters are based on real toys owned by Christopher Robin Milne. Shepard died in 1976.
Jim Broadbent continues his stellar interpretations of the characters he created in last year's extraordinary narration of WINNIE-THE-POOH. Broadbent's character voices are flawlessly pitched. Whiny Eeyore, bouncy Tigger, exuberant little Roo, sensible but anxious Piglet, and, most especially, the loving but fluff-brained Pooh have their last adventures together as they all come to terms with the end of life as they know it in the Hundred Acre Wood. Christopher Robin is going off to school, changing this childhood landscape forever. Matching the perfect voices created previously, Broadbent once again breathes life into Christopher Robin and his playthings. His renditions of these staples of children's literature are sure to become classics. S.G.
