A. A. MILNE'S 

Four Nursery Classics 

Illustrated by E. H. SHEPARD 

7s. 6d. net each 

WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG 

703rd thousand 

"It is a book that all children will adore. It is a book that 
mothers and nurses will laugh and cry over. It is a — 
classic!" — James Douglas in the Sunday Express. 



WINNIE-THE-POOH 

573rd thousand 

The adventures in the forest of Christopher 
Robin's Teddy Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh with his 
companions of the nursery; together with some 
of the poems which the Pooh Bear made up and 
sang to himself as he went along. 





NOW WE ARE SIX 

490th thousand 

Another book of verses to and for, by, with and 
from Christopher Robin, who is a little older 
now. Ernest H. Shepard, who is, if anything, 
slightly younger, continues to draw as delight- 
fully as he ever did. Winnie-the-Pooh, perhaps 
an inch more round the waist, makes an occa- 
sional appearance. 



THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER 

52 1st thousand 

Once more, and for the last time, the reader meets Christopher 
Robin and his friends in the forest. Pooh and Piglet, Kanga and 
Roo, Owl, Eeyore and Rabbit are all here as before but they are 
now joined by the Strange and Bouncy Tigger.
