In 1926, the world was introduced to a portly little bear named Winnie-the-Pooh. Along with his young friend, Christopher Robin, Pooh delighted readers from the very beginning. His often-befuddled perceptions and adorable insights won the hearts of everyone around him, including his close group of friends. From the energetic Tigger to the dismal Eeyore, A. A. Milne created a charming bunch, both entertaining and inspirational. These simple creatures often reflected a small piece of all of us: humble, silly, wise, cautious, creative, and full of life. Remember when Piglet did a very grand thing, or Eeyore's almost-forgotten birthday? Published in celebration of Pooh's 75th anniversary, this illustrious collection holds all the Pooh stories, complete and unabridged. Gorgeous watercolor illustrations from Ernest H. Shepard appear in all their glory. With beautiful colors and simple lines, these images hold their own as classics. The tales, filled with superb storylines and lessons, will continue to capture the hearts of new generations. This edition of Milne's classic is a distinguished new addition to Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, decorative endpapers, and a colorful ribbon bookmark. Collectible and durable, these volumes should be the cornerstones of every home library.
