Milne, A.A.

▪ British author
born Jan. 18, 1882, London, Eng.
died Jan. 31, 1956, Hartfield, Sussex
 English humorist, the originator of the immensely popular stories of Christopher Robin and his toy bear, Winnie-the-Pooh.

      Milne attended Westminster School, London, and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1906 he joined the staff of Punch, writing humorous verse and whimsical essays in a style that quickly dated. He achieved considerable success with a series of light comedies such as Mr. Pim Passes By (1921) and Michael and Mary (1930). Milne also wrote one memorable detective novel, The Red House Mystery (1922); and a children's play, Make-Believe (1918), before stumbling upon his true literary métier with some verses written for his son Christopher Robin. These grew into the collections When We Were Very Young (1924) and Now We Are Six (1927). These remain classics of light verse for children.

      His most popular works were the two sets of stories about the adventures of Christopher Robin and his toy animals—Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, and Eeyore—as told in Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Ernest Shepard's illustrations added to the books' charm. In 1929 Milne adapted another children's classic, The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, for the stage as Toad of Toad Hall. A decade later he wrote his autobiography, It's Too Late Now.
