''Congratulations on your outstanding contribution to children and their families. The sort of growth your work inspires speaks for emotional, ethical and character development. My personal good wishes!'' --Diana Huss Green, editor-in-chief, Parents' Choice Foundation
''Peter's reading of A.A. Milne's verse and poetry is about you and me and that cognac-colored moment when a scent of memory sends us flying back through time to a place in youth where, for a perfect instant, nothing is wrong.'' --Al Martinez, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, Los Angeles Times
About the Author
A.A. MILNE (1882-1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in light-hearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four he became assistant editor of Punch. After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children's literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It's Too Late Now (1939). His last triumph was a stage adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows as Toad of Toad Hall.
