Christopher Milne was the world-famous son of A. A. Milne. This collection brings together passages from the four volumes of C. R. MilneÆs memoirs. Covering his much-publicized childhood, his war experiences, marriage, and proprietorship of a bookshop, this book presents an intriguing portrait of a gifted man. He chose to live simplyùa choice that ultimately brought a happiness that could never come from the empty fame of being the real Christopher Robin.
