A. A. Milne (January 18, 1882 – January 31, 1956)

January 18th was the author A. A. Milne's birthday who was most famous for that chubby-little cubby Pooh Bear and since I was sick I never got to celebrate on my blog. Since tomorrow is the day that great man died I’d like to commemorate him today. I found this site which has uploaded the entire Winnie the Pooh book and included a few pictures. I actually have this old book and will do a post on it sometime next month.

I found these two videos on YouTube. The first is illustrations by E. H. Shepard set to the song House at Pooh Corner and the second one is a song sung by Gene Kelley that is based on a poem by A. A. Milne called Halfway Down the Stairs.

  1. My former boyfriend used to give me a pooh bear. He's so cute... the pooh bear, I mean. :)


Hope you enjoyed my musings and I would love to hear what you think about them!
