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 andThe House at Pooh Corner, and Milne's two poetry collections,Now We Are Six andWhen We Were Very Young, which features the very first appearance of Pooh.A.
