Piglet is Entirely Surrounded by Water (bk07)
|Author:||A. A. Milne|
Following last year's successful launch of six beautiful new editions of well-loved chapters from Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, Egmont Books are proud to present three more of A.A. Milne's timeless stories: 'A Party for Winnie-the-Pooh', 'Piglet is Entirely Surrounded by Water' and 'Eeyore Loses a Tale.' Each story is original and unabridged with Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends beautifully brought to life throughout by the coloured illustrations and sketches by Ernest H. Shepard. These stunning editions will be enjoyed by Winnie-the-Pooh fans whatever their age, and would make perfect gifts to treasure forever.
Alan Alexander Milne was born in Hampstead in 1882 and attended an independent school run by his father before studying mathematics at Cambridge. After university he worked as an Assistant Editor at the magazine Punch and established himself as a successful author of both plays and novels, including The Red House Mystery until, with the publication of When We Were Very Young in 1924 and Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926 his career took a very different turn. Milne continued to produce works for adults but occasionally resented the success of his children's stories, which overshadowed much of his other work. �In 1952 A. A. Milne suffered a stroke after brain surgery and retired to his country home in Sussex as an invalid. He died there four years later.
