For all who are six or sixty-six--or anywhere in between-- A.A. Milne wrote this collection of verses about Christopher Robin and his great friend, Winnie-the-Pooh. Readers will be moved by the gentle humor and playful rhythms of some of the best-loved poems for children. They will find delight and reassurance in Milne's world--an always accessible, sun-filled realm of the imagination--a world perfectly rendered in Ernest Shepard's enchanting illustrations.
More entertaining verses and delightful pictures in the style of When We Were Very Young. "Gay verses about all manner of things, which with their original rhythm dance their way into memory."--Four to Fourteen, 1927
