For over ninety years, 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 through his illustrations.
Now fans can continue to celebrate the legacy of Pooh with a beautiful new gift edition. Crafted as a replica of the first American edition of The House at Pooh Corner, published in 1928 by E. P. Dutton, this elegant edition features a textured case, gold foil stamping, and illustrated endpapers. It is the ideal gift for both new readers and passionate collectors and is the perfect companion to the Classic Gift Edition of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Ernest H. Shepard was born in 1879 in England. His pictures of the Pooh characters are based on real toys owned by Christopher Robin Milne. Shepard died in 1976.
