Alan Alexander Milne (1882-1956) was the son of a Scottish schoolmaster. Milne won a scholarship to Westminster School and later read mathematics at Cambridge. His real interest was in lighthearted writing; he edited the undergraduate magazine Granta and at twenty-four he became assistant editor of Punch. After serving as a signals officer in World War I he won additional acclaim as a playwright. His great success, however, came as a writer of children's literature after publishing a series of verses about his young son Christopher Robin (When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six). Following the acclaim received for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Milne published several novels as well as an autobiography, It's Too Late Now (1939).
Actor Peter Dennis narrates the Pooh audiobooks. His intimate thirty-year association with the Pooh related works of A. A. Milne has resulted in numerous stage appearances and audio recordings, from a bicontinental tour of his one man show Bother! based on selections from the four Winnie-the-Pooh books to his comprehensive Blackstone Audio recordings. He was a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, played leading roles in London's West End and throughout the UK, and was a guest star on many television series in the United States, including Friends, Seinfeld, ER, and Star Trek: Voyager. A longtime friend of the Milne family, Peter passed away in spring of 2009. His last recording, The Path through the Trees, was a gift to Clare Milne, Christopher and Lesley's Milne's only child.
Christopher Toyne is an experienced actor, producer and director. He is the fourth generation of an established British theatrical family that includes Sir Gerald du Maurier, Daphne du Maurier, and Diana Beaumont. Having become a J. Arthur Rank contract child actor, he trained and worked as an actor in London during his youth. Some of his voice acting credits include PBS, NPT, OPB, Microsoft, Adobe, Nike, Intel, and numerous others.Reseña del editor:
Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection "A.A. Milne's Pooh Classics," the forty-four poems from When We Were Very Young and the thirty-five poems of Now We Are Six, performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin. The first of A.A. Milne's four world-famous books for children, When We Were Very Young introduced Christopher Robin to innumerable friends and has probably been read more widely than any other book of verse for children published in our time. Now We Are Six followed, becoming a modern classic in its own right. For sheer delightfulness, the children's rhymes of A.A. Milne are in a class by themselves with their charm, humor, understanding, and irresistible rhythms.
