NOW WE ARE SIX
"For the third time A.A. Milne has demonstrated that a book for children can outsell all other books in the country." – Contemporary review in THE RETAIL BOOKSELLER
The furry friends of the Hundred Acre Wood, based on real-life toys, are incorporated into these children's poems. Winnie the Pooh is Christopher Robin's constant companion, but readers also run into Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, and Roo. Within only a couple months of publication, this installment of the Pooh series had already outsold its (bestselling) predecessor, WINNIE-THE-POOH. This deluxe production for the United States was limited to only 200 copies.
