When We Were Young by A. Milne is composed of endearing 44 poems for children. Some of these poems I thought I heard when I was a young boy in the Pacific island. In it, illustrator Ernest H. Shepard defines the visual trajectory of Winnie-the-Pooh for a century and beyond, and we meet Christopher Robin, a tiny chap bursting with enthusiasm to explore the great big world. He is our guide through most of the poems in this book, and his energy quickly gets the 1924 was the year Alan Alexander Milne published When We Were Very Young, the first in a steady stream of classics featuring some of the most charming characters in the history of British literature.

Hubert Litchfield to front pastedowns of When We Were Young and Winnie-the-Pooh. Some toning to jackets of Winnie The Pooh and Now We Are Six, each jacket except When We Were Very Young with one short closed tear front or rear panel. A fine set, very scarce with the dust jackets in such exceptionally good condition. Obviously meant for very young children, adults who might be reading it to them will also love the little stories in verse and both will adore the line drawings that illustrate them. I saved the copy I’d had as a child and read it to both my children. This one is for my new granddaughter! If your kids love this one, be sure to give them Now We Are Six for their sixth birthdays.

I am 85 years old and sent this to my now 6 year old granddaughter. My son sent me a video of her reading
the last poem in the book which I memorized long ago. I would never have believed that this could ever be
possible, but am grateful to everyone who helped to make it happen. Thank you.

This is a lovely keepsake-quality book with all the illustrations those of previous generations remember with affection. I was disappointed, however, to find these "complete tales" did not include the teddy bear poems from Milne's "When We Were Very Young", my own introduction to Pooh over 80 years ago.

I bought this sweet book for myself, because I am simply smitten with the gentleness and kindness that is so commonly illustrated in its pages. I know it is supposed to be for children, but there is plenty for adults to learn, if they care to. I love this book!

It is a great story and book for children. Unfortunately the book presented for sale is not what you receive. The book for sale is a special addition that is printed in the USA. The one you receive is not the special addition and it is printed in China. The ad and preview for this book is misleading.

When I went away to college many years ago, my mother loaned my "Winnie-the-Pooh"—received on my fifth birthday—to a young co-worker to read to her children. It was never returned. I have been mourning ever since! The fact that this book had everything the original had, except the hardback cover, made it irresistible. I bought it! It did not disappoint. I saw the same dear pictures of the same beloved Pooh in the well-remembered interesting situations with his unique take on matters and his same friends and his companion, Christopher Robin. The book now has joined its mate, "The House at Pooh Corner." My bookcase is no longer missing something. Get this book and read it to your children or give it to them to read, as my mother did me. It cannot be replaced by the Disney Pooh. That Pooh is a whole different animal...trust me. Oh, and lend it to NO ONE. Get them one of their own!

Book came quickly despite the crazy weather. I purchased this for my 3yo nephew knowing that I read and loved the stories when I was small. I hope that he finds the stories as entrancing as I did. The book is beautiful, and has the updated dust cover art shown on the main image. Pages are heavyweight and have high quality printing and the hard cover came unblemished and undamaged from shipping. Pooh is embossed in gold on the light blue cover. Will buy again once my other nephew is a little older.

Exactly what I was looking for. I prefer the look and feel of hardcover books. I usually take the dust cover off because I like the look of the raw book, and this book was no exception. Under the dustcover over this book is a beautiful mustard yellow color with little silver bees engraved in it—it's adorable!

I love it.
Like pretty much everyone else in the world I'd heard of WINNIE-THE-POOH. I'd even seen a lot of the TV shows and movies (a friend of mine actually wrote some of the TV shows for Disney). But it wasn't until I watched GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN that I became interested in reading the books. I am so very glad I did.

I've only read the first one so far, and, as expected, it is a wonderful children's story; but what I didn't realize was how uniquely well-written it is. Admittedly the opening caught me off-guard and I had to re-read it twice to understand the point-of-view, but once I realized what Mr. Milne was doing, I loved it.

Yes, the storytelling is simplistic. Mr. Milne is obviously writing for a very young audience. This makes his style entirely appropriate, plus his ability to tell his story from the standpoint of a child is amazing. But it is his characters that make WINNIE work most of all. They are brilliantly childlike and likable.

Kudos, Mr. Milne. WINNIE-THE-POOH is a wonderful accomplishment, and deserves all of its accolades. I have no doubt it will still be around in another hundred years.
