Christopher Milne - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/21/1920     Christopher Robin and the Milnes
On this day in 1920, Christopher Robin Milne was born, an only child to A. A. Milne. Christopher also wrote, his first two books being memoirs of his growing up and out from under the shadow of the fictional Christopher Robin. The writing of the first of these was "like a session on the analyst's couch," and reads partly as setting-the-record-straight, partly as settling-the-score.

Pooh Corner
Find detailed biographies of A. A. Milne, Christopher Milne, and illustrator E. H. Shepard, background information about Cotchford Farm (near Hartfield in East Sussex), the toys which inspired many of the Pooh characters, the origins of the name "Winnie." A small collection of lyrics is also provided, including "Return to Pooh Corner" and "Tigger's Song."

"As a young child, Christopher enjoyed being associated with the Pooh stories. He and his friends once put on a play in the forest for the parents, enacting out one of the stories. He also took part in helping his father come up with the stories. ... It wasn't until boarding school, at the age of 10, that Christopher began to hate his association with Christopher Robin. Previously, he had been upset that some of the newspaper articles that had been written about him were wrong about certain facts, but for the most part, he enjoyed being associated with the stories. However, away from the family and amongst a new group of boys, he was often teased about being Christopher Robin."
