Off to the library stacks to look for this. A re-read for me, it has been many years! Intrigued to hear about the film too.


I'd like to read this. Thanks for the review, Karen!


Yes, the film looks very interesting, especially in light of the book.


You're welcome, Nicola.


Oh Cornflower - what a beautiful review...especially this sentence...
"There's a sepia wash of resignation to the word pictures in this book"

Thank you, now in my wish-list at Book Depository

The review perfectly captures the feel of this delightful book. Christopher Milne's book is warm, humorous and reflective and, despite the difficult relationship he had with his parents, he is never bitter or regretful. I got the impression he was a man who had overcome his demons and was eventually able to live at peace with himself as the child he had once been, as his father's fantasy creation, and as the adult he eventually became.

I love this book, for all the reasons you say - but love the second in the trilogy even more. A Path Through The Trees is about Christopher Milne in WW2 and, afterwards, running a secondhand bookshop, and it's brilliant.


A must, then! Thank you, Simon.
