'But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever. So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever!'


Curl up with Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin in A. A. Milne’s classic book of poetry for children, Now We Are Six.


This work includes poems for children which feature Pooh helping Christopher Robin with his schoolwork (if helping is the word). It is an evocation of childhood, through the eyes of the six-year-old Robin.


Featuring E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations, Now We Are Six is a heart-warming and funny introduction to children’s poetry, offering the same sense of humour, imagination and whimsy that we’ve come to expect from his favourite books about Winnie-the-Pooh, that Bear of Very Little Brain.


Do you own all the classic Pooh titles?


Winnie-the-Pooh


The House at Pooh Corner


When We Were Very Young

Also look out for Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and The Best Bear in all the World (coming soon)


Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.


Whether you’re 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages.

Review:

This is A.A. Milne's second volume of verse about Christopher Robin and his friends. From short simple rhymes like "Solitude" to the longer poems, such as "King John's Christmas", there is a poem to suit any storytelling session. With E.H. Shepard's original illustrations in colour, this is an attractive and entertaining book for adults to share with young children. -- Philippa Reece

About the Author:

A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch.


Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!).


Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory.


In one way, Christopher Robin turned out to be more famous than his father, though he became uncomfortable with his fame as he got older, preferring to avoid the literary limelight and run a bookshop in Dartmouth. Nevertheless, he published three volumes of his reminiscences before his death in 1996.
