This autobiography is a rare view into the life of Christopher Milne.
From his much publicized childhood on Cotchford Farm to his war experiences, his marriage, and his proprietorship of a successful bookshop in a small English town, the life of the famous author's son was one of much joy and some pain. It was also one of deep introspection. These writings illuminate the shy, quiet man who was a thoughtful observer of the natural world and a gentle commentator on humankind's relationship to it.
This book offers an intriguing portrait of a gifted man who chose to live simply, a choice that ultimately brought him satisfaction—more than could ever come from the empty fame of being the "real" Christopher Robin.
Recorded by Peter Dennis in the last year of his life as a promised gift for Christopher Robin Milne's daughter Clare. Peter's consummate skill as a narrator brings Christopher's biography to life, and his deep friendship for Christopher is tangible in this beautiful rendition. Peter and his wife Diane's friendship with the Milne family spans many years.
