With characteristic self-deprecating humour, A.A. Milne recalls the formative events of his life: from a blissfully happy childhood to the writing of Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin.


In his classic memoirs A. A. Milne, with his characteristic self-deprecating humour, recalls a blissfully happy childhood in the company of his brothers, and writes with touching affection about his father whom he adored.

From Westminster School he won a scholarship to Cambridge University where he edited the university magazine, Granta. He then went out into the world, determined to be a writer. He was assistant editor at Punch Magazine and enjoyed great success with his novels, plays and stories. And of course he is best remembered for his children's novels and verses featuring Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin.

This is both an account of how a writer was formed and a charming period piece on literary life – Milne met countless famous authors including H. G. Wells, J. M Barrie of Peter Pan fame and Rudyard Kipling.
