AA Milne was born in London and lived from 1882-1956.He was the successful author of plays and books for children and adults, and is best known for his Christopher Robin stories - Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young and Now We are Six.From Booklist:
Reviewed with A. A. Milne's Pooh Goes Visiting.
K-Gr. 2. Each book in the Winnie-the-Pooh Easy Reader series features one chapter from Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh or The House at Pooh Corner. The chapter is shortened, divided into four small sections, and formatted for beginning readers. In Pooh Goes Visiting, Pooh enjoys a repast in Rabbit's hole, but he becomes stuck in the doorway on his way out. In Tigger Comes to the Forest, Pooh discovers Tigger on his doorstep and takes him out to meet the other residents of the Hundred Acre Wood and find something that he likes for breakfast. Krensky does a good and sensitive job of gently adapting the language for beginning readers. He simplifies sentence structures and leaves out some phrases, while sticking to the essentials. Although some of the humor and cadence of Milne's original prose is lost, the simplified texts are better than might be expected. An ink-and-watercolor picture by Shepard, pulled from the original books, appears on nearly every page. Carolyn Phelan
