A.A. Milne is one of the most successful English writers ever. His heart-warming creationsWinnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglethave become some of the best-loved childrens characters of all time, and readers the world over are familiar with the stories from the Hundred Acre Wood. Yet the man himself has remained an enigma. Although in many ways his behaviour was that of a typical golf-playing, pipe-smok-ing Englishman, Milne refused to be typecast, and his publishers despaired when he turned from writing popular columns for Punch to writing detective stories. They complained again when the detective writer presented them with a set of childrens verse, but when When We Were Very Young became one of the best-selling books of all time, Milnes credibility as one of the worlds favorite authors was sealed.
