Eeyore Has a Birthday (Winnie-the-Pooh)
|Author:||A. A. Milne|
"Sad? Why should I be sad? It's my birthday. The happiest day of the year." said Eeyore. "Your birthday?" said Pooh in great surprise. It's Eeyore's birthday and none of his friends have remembered it. So Pooh and Piglet plan to cheer him up with presents, and some unexpected suprises...This beautiful little storybook is a great way to introduce young readers to the characters in A. A. Milne's Hundred Acre Wood. Illustrated with E H Shepard's iconic artwork, this is guaranteed to be a bedtime favourite for children aged 5 and up.
A. A. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, was based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. He produced a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926, the best-selling Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Through his writings for Punch magazine, A. A. Milne met E. H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.
