About this book

This collection of poetry by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard has been delighting children and adults alike since being published in 1924. While dated, most of the simple, humorous poems remain magical and relevant to today's children.

The book begins with an introduction entitled "Just Before We Begin," which introduces a narrator that might be Christopher Robin. Winnie the Pooh is included in the poem, "Teddy Bear," which originally appeared in Punch magazine in February 1924.
