Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Seventy-five years ago, that most beloved of "silly old bears," Winnie-the-Pooh, came down the stairs, "bump, bump, bump," on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. And now, after generations of children have grown up on stories about Pooh's adventures with his forest friends, the four all-time children's classics from A.A. Milne and Ernest H. Shepard have been collected in one hefty, handsome volume for another multitude of generations to enjoy. Gathered together are the poems and tales that celebrate heffalumps, Eeyore's birthday, the unbouncing of Tigger, Disobedience, Buckingham Palace, and sneezles. The stories about Pooh getting stuck in Rabbit's doorway, Piglet doing a "Very Grand Thing," and Eeyore losing a tail (and Pooh finding one) are timeless favorites for children--and grownups--of all ages. Four original classics are here, in all their glory: Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, and Now We Are Six. This beautiful edition features complete, unabridged text and all of Shepard's original illustrations, each hand painted in watercolors--this is a true collector's gem. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Celebrate the 75th anniversary of the beloved "silly old bear" with two new offerings. The Complete Tales & Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh collects A.A. Milne's classic stories (Winnie-the-Pooh; The House at Pooh Corner; When We Were Very Young; and Now We Are Six) and Ernest H. Shepard's original illustrations in one gorgeous oversize gift edition. Three Cheers for Pooh: The Best Bear in All the World by Brian Sibly provides readers with a historical reference point, starting with the story of Mrs. Milne's purchase of a stuffed bear at a London department store for their young son, Christopher Robin. Photographs, original manuscript pages and Shepard's sketches and illustrations complete the package.

I bought this book as a baby shower gift, and couldn't have been more pleased. It has an attractive cover, sturdy pages, and a good binding -- all necessary for years of bedtime stories! Like most classic Pooh books, the only illustrations are the original drawings, so the emphasis is on the story. One note: This is a big, fairly heavy book. It's something to be read to or by an older child, maybe at bedtime, but it's not as durable for the poundings board books get.

Format: Hardcover
Finding a "Winnie the Pooh" book is easy. It all depends what you are looking for. For the many parents and grandparents hoping to read the wonderful stories to younger people the adventures of Pooh, Christopher Robin, Tigger, Eyeore, Piglet, Kanga, Rabbit, Owl and the rest, this will be more than adequate.

The large type is perfect for tired eyes being asked to read at bedtime, and is equally perfect for teaching young ones to follow along.

Ernest Shepard's pictures are throughout. Buying any edition with pictures by anyone else other than Shepard would disappoint Milne, of course, but also any of us who grew up with Pooh. Colored pen-and-ink drawings capture the intimate essence of the characters, and the soft meadows and fields of the 100 Acre Woods.

The stories are filled with poems and whimsy. The poems are like nursery rhymes, with the same playful tone of the stories. As delightfully written as anything in the English language, it all reads well aloud and quietly. There is more than enough to share through many months, and will entrance both child and adult throughout.

I fully recommend "The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh" by A. A. Milne.

No childhood - or adulthood, for that matter - would be complete without the adventures of wonderful Winnie and his friends. This 75th anniversary edition is beautifully presented, and readers used to Disney's glossily commercial drawings will be amazed by the original Ernest H. Shepard illustrations featured here. Coloured by Shepard when he was in his 90s (!), Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin and co have never seemed more endearing and vivid.
But the greatest credit should surely go to A.A. Milne for creating some of fiction's most delightful characters. Reading this collection today after a break of 30-odd years, Milne's gentle wit and enthusiasm seem as fresh as ever. What a wonderful sense of life (and fun) the man must have possessed.
Pooh is the perfect antidote to today's cynical times!

For any collector of Winnie-the-Pooh this edition is a must have! It has thick pages and is nicely bound and will withstand many years of reading. I don't think I need to talk about the story--everyone is pretty familiar with Winnie-the-Pooh. It is a great bargain as it contains the COMPLETE tales & poems. It would make a wonderful holiday present.

The delightful full color illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard are what separate this combined volume from all others. A must-have for Pooh fans. The large type-set will be appreciated by those needing it.

Who could ever forget this heart-warwming, honey-loving bear? All the familiar characters are here, Christopher Robin, Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger. With Christmas just around the corner, what a delightful gift this would make for that special child on your list. The beautiful hand-painted, watercolour illustrations are of very high quality. This is a collector's item of tales and poems that your child can treasure over the years and one day pass on to his or her own children. For Pooh-lovers, this is truly a treasure to behold.

You can't go wrong with classic "Pooh". This book is wonderful in every way. The original illustrations (so different and, in my opinion, much more charming than their Disney counterparts) are integrated to the text, making the book come completely alive. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this for anyone I know, whether they have children or not. The stories are so cleverly written even adults will come away with something after reading them!

I bought this book for my grandchildren to introduce them to the real "Winnie-the-Pooh", not the Disney version. This is a gorgeous book and is one to pass down to the next generation. It's a classic in every sense of the word. This is "Winnie-the-Pooh" as I remember with the original illustrations and stories. Every child's library should have this book.
