Today is A. A. Milne’s birthday, back in 1882. Of course we all know he wrote Winnie the Pooh. I have heard so many stories about how and why he wrote the children’s book that I don’t know which of them is true. You might ask Christopher Robin or Tigger, Eeyore or Piglet or Roo. Surely one of them will have he right answer. So if you love Winnie the Pooh then by default you love Allan Alexander Milne too.
