Winnie-The-Pooh Day

Milne Winnie the PoohToday we celebrate the birth of A. A. Milne, author and creator of the character Winnie-the-Pooh.  As a book reseller I can attest to the active and ongoing demand for vintage Milne books.  I’ve sold many of Milne’s books and many of the books related to Winnie-the-Pooh like The Tao of Pooh, The Te of Piglet, and Pooh and the Philosophers. I’ve even come across and sold a 1961 edition of Winnie-the-Pooh in Latin.  Milne made a positive impact in our world while he was alive and even now, almost 60 years after his passing.
