Inglese, commediografo, Milne iniziò la sua carriera di scrittore per ragazzi pubblicando una raccolta di poesie dedicate a suo figlio Christopher Robin. Incoraggiato dal successo riportato, Milne decise di mettere per iscritto anche le storie di Winnie Puh, con le quali aveva allietato l'infanzia del figlio. In particolare "La strada di Puh" è stato pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1920.

Back in the fifties, one Christmas, I had a mammoth case of the flu. But somehow for a little kid the world is always a place of wonder, no matter HOW bad he feels... I remember reading the story of the Flying Dutchman in bed on Christmas Eve - with an incipient fever blackening the edges of my rever Leggi tutto
“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind."Pooh!" he whispered."Yes, Piglet?""Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you.” I will forever be in love with these books. The sweetness and melancholy get me every single time. I don't know where Milne takes all the beautiful wo Leggi tutto
I set out to write a review of Winnie the Pooh and I will say that it’s so 2020 that good reads just deleted it. I will make this short and sweet. I loved the Magical World of Disney as a kid. Before Sunday night football, this was the best television Sunday night had to offer. Before streaming serv Leggi tutto
So beautifully and so simply written (deceptively so) by A.A. Milne and exquisitely illustrated by E.H. Shepard (initially black/white line drawings and later colour washed by Shepard himself). These are the stories of a boy and his bear, his world and all the wonderful characters that inhabit that
Lovely. I was shocked by how melancholy the book allowed itself to become at the end. And how much that melancholy affected me, but as far as I'm concerned "A little boy and his bear will always be playing." Might be the most hopeful line to end a book in the English language.
As a small child, Winnie the Pooh stories were read to me. As an adult, I read them to my kids and took them to see where Christopher Robin and his childhood friends had lived—the Milnes’ country home at Cotchford Farm, Hartfield in East Sussex, England. We walked in the “Hundred Acre Wood” where he Leggi tutto

I love the purity of this story. It has this child-like wonder about the world. We see through the eyes of Pooh who has little attachments in this world besides honey. He is usually the one to come up with solutions to problems and he doesn't overthink things. He lives by his gut. Each character has Leggi tutto
This is the second adorable instalment that details the antics of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Much like in the first book, this was sectioned into a handful of shorter stories, each a self-contained adventure. Also, like the first book, this retained a humours tone throughout and involved Chris Leggi tutto
