About the Author:

The author of this translation, Alexandro Lenardo, is a pseudonym for Alexander Lenard. Alexander Lenard was not Italian. He was Hungarian. His name in Hungarian was Lénárd Sándor. Alexander Leonard was born Budapest, Hungary on 9 March 1910. He was fluent in several languages and wrote many books in those languages. He wrote fiction and non-fiction in German, Latin, Hungarian, Italian and English. Winnie Ille Pu was written in Brazil in 1958. Alexander Leonard wrote it for the daughter of one of his students to help her learn Latin. He apparently never imagined that the book would be published, much less that it would become a best seller. Winnie Ille Pu was originally self-published in Brazil. The book we see here is not the original publication. In 1920, the Lénárd family moved from Hungary to Austria. Sándor conducted his medical studies at the University of Vienna. After the 1938 "Anschluss" with Germany, he escaped to Italy. During World World II, he escaped the attention of the Fascist regime by leaving no "paper trail" (identity card, ration card, etc.). He survived by trading his medical services for food and shelter. His leisure hours were spent in the Vatican library, reading texts in Latin until it became a colloquial language to him. His brother Károly died in 1944 in a Nazi labor camp while his sister settled in England. In 1951 he emigrated to Brazil, where he won the Săo Paulo Television Bach competition in 1956. He settled in the Dona Emma valley, where he bought a small farm with a house he made "invisible" by surrounding it with his favorite trees. He treated the local population medically until his death on 13 April 1972.

Review:

“An altogether ingenious tour de force.”
—The Washington Post


“A book anyone with even the slightest knowledge of Latin can enjoy . . . It does more to attract interest in Latin than Cicero, Caesar, and Virgil combined.”
—Chicago Tribune

“Pooh has been a classic for so long, it's about time it showed up in a classical tongue.”
—The New York Times Book Review


“Surely the ultimate canonization of a great children's classic.”
—Des Moines Register

“A brilliantly funny book . . . Nothing is skipped, every word is there.”
—New York Herald Tribune Book Review

“Proof that humor is not dead, even if Latin is supposed to be.”
—New York World Telegram & Sun

“It is hard to conceive of a Latin work more calculated than this attractive volume to fascinate the modern public, young and old.”
—Christian Science Monitor
