More About the Author

Alan Alexander Milne was born in London on January 18, 1882, the third and youngest son of a schoolmaster. At age eleven, he won a scholarship to the Westminster School. He went on to attend Cambridge University and became the editor of the undergraduate paper, Granta. After graduating from Cambridge in 1903, Milne moved back to London with enough savings to live for one year. He was determined to become a writer. By 1906, he had been offered the position of Assistant Editor at Punch, a classic British humor magazine. He remained at Punch for the next eight years.
In 1913, Milne married Dorothy de Selincourt (known as Daphne) and moved to a house in London's Chelsea section. When World War I broke out, he enlisted in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, eventually serving in France. During his training period, he wrote his first play, Wurzel-Flummery, which was produced in London in 1917.

By 1919, having completed one book and several plays, Milne finally achieved financial independence. His play, Mr. Pim Passes By, previously staged in London, was produced by the Theatre Guild in New York City. It was as great a success there as it had been on the London stage. Milne was now well established as a witty and fashionable London playwright. In 1920, Christopher Robin Milne was born, an event that was to change the history of children's literature. In 1923, during a rainy holiday in Wales, Milne began work on a collection of verses for children. The result was When We Were Very Young, published in 1924.

Demand for Milne's whimsical work was overwhelming, and in 1926, he duplicated his earlier success with the publication of Winnie-the-Pooh. The sequel, The House at Pooh Corner, followed in 1927. Now We Are Six, another charming collection of verse, followed one year later. It was through these four books, all illustrated by the wonderfully talented Ernest H. Shepard, that Milne acquired a vast audience outside of the theater. In the years since their initial publication, interest in these books has grown and grown.

Milne continued to be a prolific essayist, novelist, and poet until his death in 1956.

This little book is an inspiration for any Pooh fan. Not only does it have helpful quotes and sayings for when you may be feeling down or just need a boost of brightness, but it includes various quotes that go along with each life lesson. I got this for my 22 year sister for Valentine's day-- It's wonderful for adults and a keepsake if you give it to children as well. The pictures are beautiful and it's all good quality. I highly recommend :D

Gave this as a graduation gift (along with money of course) to my sister. She always loved Pooh when younger so this was the perfect gift. Great 'positive' sayings alone with Pooh writings.

Winnie the Pooh is a iconic figure from Children's literature and, more recently, several management treatises. "Positively Pooh", in a sense, combines the best of both. Select adventures of Winnie and friends are plucked from context and labeled with "moral of the story" type headings. Viewing the experiences of Milne's beloved gang through a wholesome, philosophical lens will surely appeal to most fans of the "Bear with Very Little Brain".

I bought this book as a gift for my fiancé as she's a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh. Contents contain pooh's qoute and a short story behind the meaning.

Delivery date wasn't accurate for my case as I'm located at the other of the world. Nonetheless I received the book within 3weeks.

There's a little tear at the spine of the front cover (usually hard cover books has this "wrapping") of the book. Overall cosmetic condition is still 8/10.

Anyway, my fiancée love this book! A very good book for pooh fan, be young or old!

My daughter is a freak about Winnie the Pooh and saying of wisdom. I'm giving her the book for her birthday and I just know she will love it. The drawings and sayings are delightful and most meaningful.
