When We Were Very Young
|Author:||A. A. Milne|
"It's lovely rice pudding for dinner again!"
Milne's poetry effortlessly transports the reader into a child's mind, with its wonders, tantrums and frustration at adults who seriously think rice pudding is appealing. Readers will remember these poems from their own childhood, and want to pass them on to the next generation.
When We Were Very Young also features the very first appearance in print of Winnie-the-Pooh, in a delightful verse exploring the tribulations of stoutness for a philosophical teddy bear. First published 1924.
Colouring of original illustrations by Mark Burgess 1989.
