Pooh Goes Visiting (Winnie-the-Pooh)
|Author:||A. A. Milne; E. H. Shepard (Illustrator)|
Generations of children have grown up on Winnie the Pooh's adventures with his forest friends. These sparkling audio adaptations of A.A. Milne's beloved stories-now available on CD-feature an all-star cast of readers, including Oscar winner Judi Dench. Three cheers for that silly old bear! In Pooh Goes Visiting, Pooh goes visiting and gets into a tight place, Pooh and Piglet go hunting and nearly catch a Woozle, Eeyore loses a tail and Pooh finds one, Piglet is entirely surrounded by water, Christopher Robin gives a Pooh Party, and we say good-bye.
A. A. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, was based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. He produced a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926, the best-selling Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Through his writings for Punch magazine, A. A. Milne met E. H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.
