AA Milne full name Alan Alexander Milne was an English children’s fiction author best known for writing “Winnie the Pooh” series of children’s stories. The author was born to Vince and Sarah Milne in Kilburn, London and grew up at the small public school run by his father.

He was privileged enough to be a student of HG Wells who taught at the Henley House School for at least a year. As a teen, Milne went to Westminster School and then attended Trinity College, Cambridge, where he had been granted a scholarship to study mathematics.

He would continue to show an interest in writing during this time as he wrote for student magazine Granta. During this time, he worked with Kenneth his brother, and the initials AKM which they used over this time would appear in many articles they produced.

His work soon came to the attention of an editor of “Punch” the British humour magazine, which soon employed him as contributor and later assistant editor.

When World War I broke out, Milne joined the British Army as an officer but was discharged from the Royal Corps of Signals in 1919 after a debilitating illness. After the war, he wrote “Peace with Honour” that was a denunciation of the war. He would later repudiate some of the things he said when he published “War with Honour” in the 1940s.

Milne would become one of the most prominent critics of PG Wodehouse the English author that was captured by the Nazis while in his country home in France. The two would often throw barbs at each other with Wodehouse creating parodies of Milne, while he accused him of near treason by cooperating with the Nazis.
During the Second World War, he was a home guard officer but retired to his country farm soon after a stroke in 1952. He passed away in 1956 aged 74 years.

AA Milne made his debut in 1925 when he published “Gallery of Children,” a collection of short stories that had some of the stories that would become part of his most popular “Winnie the Pooh” series.

Pooh got the inspiration for the Pooh books from Christopher Robin, his son and the many stuffed animals he used to play with. Winnie, the name of the title character, was inspired by WInnipeg, a black bear who was a later resident of the London Zoo following his exploits as a mascot in World War I.

The first novel in the series “Winnie The Pooh” was so popular upon publication that it spawned several others including the second collection “The House at Pooh Corner” and two other collections. While the collections were very successful, Milne did not relish the publicity and in fact quit writing them once they became too popular.

Moreover, he did not like how much fame was coming the way of his son as he believed it would prevent him from living a normal life.

“Winnie the Pooh” by AA Milne is the introduction to the eponymous character that made Milne one of the most popular children’s fiction authors ever. Pooh is a wonderfully created character that has delighted children and adults alike over the years.

He is a paradoxically clever, funny, loyal and undeniably wise bear who does many wonderful and brave things. He can also be both greedy and selfish while at other times he is thoughtful and kind, and above else a lovable bear.

The novel also introduces several supporting characters including the Rabbit and his relations and friends, the excitable and timid Piglet, Roo, the wise Owl, Kango and the self pitying and morose Eeyore.

We see ourselves in the many characters as almost everyone can see either themselves or someone they know in the likes of Rabbit or Eeyore. Milne pens well written but simple stories in his collections that have become timeless classics. Winnie the Pooh is a thrilling story that thrills right from the start right to the very last page.

The House at Pooh Corner by AA Milne sees Pooh and Piglet, his best friend go on some interesting adventures longside little Roo, Rabbit, Kanga, Eeyore and Owl. The novel also introduces Tigger with his nonstop joie de vivre.

Tiggers bumps into Piglet and Pooh while they are stuck in a trap. Initially, he is too afraid to help them out and together with Roo they dash up a tree afraid that they would also get trapped. But he has an excessive energy drive and this drives Rabbit crazy as he is a more serious character that does not like all the fun and bouncing around.

Rabbit sets in motion a plan to rid the wood of Tigger as he thinks this will be for the good of everyone. He believes he has the backing of Piglet and Pooh but when he invites them to implement his plan, it backfires as they are not interested.

While Rabbit does not get along with Tigger, one cannot help but feel for him as he is not a bad person but rather one that misunderstands the intentions of others. Milne makes use of this to assert that empathy is a good thing for kids to have.

“When We Were Very Young,” the third novel of the “Winnie the Pooh” series of novels is a story that tells of the beauty of childhood. While humans have to deal with tragedy in the course of their lives, Milne writes some exhilarating poems that take one back to the joys of childhood.

Reading the poems in the collection we get to visit the preschool world of Christopher Robin, the exciting days spent at the nursery, the drowsy afternoons and late mornings stalking brownies and catching beetles.

It is a world in which a chair could be courted into a lion’s cage or a pirate ship and it is critical to avoid all the bumps and cracks in the road if one is to avoid the bears lying in wait. Childhood was a time of wonder when one had not yet been distracted by the devil of purpose.
