Product Description

Happy 90th birthday, to one of the world''s most beloved icons of children''s literature, Winnie-the-Pooh!
 
Since 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends—Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and the ever doleful Eeyore—have endured as the unforgettable creations of A.A. Milne, who wrote this book for his son, Christopher Robin, and Ernest H. Shepard, who lovingly gave Pooh and his companions shape. 

This box set contains four hardcover books: the two original Pooh novels, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and Milne''s two poetry collections, Now We Are Six and When We Were Very Young, which features the very first appearance of Pooh.

Amazon.com Review

Stop everything! If at least one copy of each of these classics is not in a prominent place on your bookshelf, your home and your progeny''s childhood is incomplete. Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends--blustery old Owl, bouncy Tigger, clever Christopher Robin, glum Eeyore, and the rest--have been a staple of children''s literature for over 70 years in A.A. Milne''s Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner. And Milne''s immortal collections of children''s verse, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, have soothed many a savage beast at bedtime with such incomparable delights as "If I Were King" and "Us Two." All four of these classics, complete with Ernest H. Shepard''s original illustrations, are gathered here in a handsome boxed set. These hardcover editions will most certainly be a cherished legacy to be handed down for generations to come. After all, as Rabbit says solemnly one day, "Without Pooh, the adventure would be impossible." (Ages 3 to 103) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover

This is a collection of books for Poohs Library. -Winnie-The-Pooh- The House At Pooh Corner - When We Were Very Young - Now We Are Six. This is the pastel edition.

About the Author

A. A. Milne was born in England in 1882, the third and youngest son of London schoolteachers. As a boy he wrote verses, parodies, and short humorous pieces for his school’s paper. He went on to study at Cambridge. In 1903 he left school to write. Before long he was supporting himself on his earnings, and became an editor at Punch magazine. In 1913 he married Dorothy de Selincourt. He began his military service in 1915 in Europe. During this time he wrote three plays, all of which were produced on the London stage. Christopher Robin Milne was born in 1920. It was Christopher’s toy bear, pig, donkey, tiger, and kangaroo that became the inspiration for the famous Pooh books. A. A. Milne wrote more plays, a novel, his autobiography, and political nonfiction, although he is best remembered for Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six. Milne died in 1956.

First off the stories are wonderful, but you probably already know that. Your child will love them and you will too. It''s this particular printing that does a disservice to the books. Inside is all black and white on cheap lightweight paper. I bought this set as a gift for a friend having a baby. I chose the more expensive set that claimed to have a high print quality thinking it''d be a nicer gift. I was wrong. I certainly can''t speak for the other options available as I only purchased this version but this one was very disappointing.

Pooh Bear is one of my favorite children''s literature characters. The stories and poems are classics. Unfortunately, the quality of the books themselves leaves much to be desired. The binding is not a library binding, as advertised; the pages are glued, not sewn. And the paper of the pages is of cheap paperback quality. This is far from an heirloom edition. I bought the books for my grandson, hoping that he could pass them along to his children. I''d be surprised if they survive in tact for more than a few years.

Regarding this particular set (4 Volume Hardback Dutton Children''s Books; Reissue edition (October 31, 1988) - in a cardboard slipcase: Good set. Sturdy books. High quality. No problems. I would buy again based on that.

Regarding the literature: When I bought this I thought it was four books of Milne Winnie-the-Pooh stories. I did not realize it was two books of prose and two of poetry. My own fault - a little investigation would have told me. I was disappointed to find that it was half poetry and not specifically Pooh-Poetry (Poohetry?) However, my kids and I enjoy the poetry. The poetry is the best part. My kids hate the prose. They never want to read Winnie the Pooh. I think this is because Milne is a little sarcastic and talks down to children. Children are the butt of the joke most of the time. I think this would be a good gift for a college freshman, but not good material to read to children (except the poetry).

Read the poetry. Reread the poetry. Put the prose on the shelf until the graduate high school.

Bought this set as a gift for a co-worker''s children. I have the set for myself and her children are the perfect age to start having the books read to them.
The box the books come in is very sturdy and looks great. The books themselves come with colorful dust covers and sturdy binding.
This is the complete "Winnie the Pooh" set, so you''ll be getting both of the story books and both of the poem books. These are great books to get your younger children into reading and I remember reading them to my sister when she was a baby hoping she''d like them too.
The books are fully illustrated with the ~original~ artwork (black and white) and are great to have with the story.

She was seriously injured in a bike accident on Mother''s day, so surgeries, hospital and home at the end of school was a drag.
This gave her something new to focus on and got there fast, which was important!

I was somewhat reluctant to pay this price for children''s books, but did so in recollection of how much enjoyment I got out of them as a boy. First, a young boy, and a surprising number of years thereafter. Children will appreciate the simple stories, and adult narrators the wry humor with which they are told.

Winnie the Pooh has been absorbed as part of our culture, in the process of which the original is almost forgotten. Everybody knows the Disney characters of Pooh, Tigger and Piglet. Very few remember the little boy, Christopher Robin, whose toys they were. It is a worldwide phenomenon. My son has a jigsaw puzzle of Винни Пух - a Russian transliteration, but with characters that bear no resemblance to either Milne''s original or Disney.

I ripped the package open when it came in yesterday''s mail, and read it to my two-year-old son well past the point at which he lost interest. It is an engrossing story, one what makes me want to keep on reading.

Five stars now, for the same reasons it was a five-star production in the early 20th century. It''s worth buying a well-produced edition; these books will stand the test of time.

£34 for these? What a rip off. I got the library binding which is hardback. They look really nice until you open them and see the very cheap brown paper. It is a great shame
