Description: "A.A. Milne's Pooh stories need no introduction; they have been loved by generations of children and their parents ever since they were first published in 1926. Now, nearly 50 years later, Ernest Shepard has coloured the original line drawings with a freshness and vigour which gives the illustrations a new an arresting dimension for the children of today."
