PRESCHOOL: The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne
Price: $49.95

In 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh, a collection of stories about a rather stout, somewhat confused bear, was published in England and America. The enchanting tales of Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Chirstopher Robin, and the others were an immediate success, and firmly established A.A. Milne, already an acclaimed dramatist, as a major author of children's books. Winnie-the-Pooh was followed in 1928 by a second collection, The House at Pooh Corner, which continued the adventures from the Hundred Acre Wood and introduced bouncy, lovable Tigger. Ernest H. Shepard's brilliant illustrations were based on real toys owned by Milne's son, Christopher Robin. The artist visited Cotchford Farm, the Milne country home in Sussex, where he sketched the child, the stuffed animals, and the surrounding countryside. The world of Winnie-the-Pooh is as popular today as when it was first created. Winnie-the-Pooh has appeared in twenty-one languages, amoung them Hebrew, Afrikaans, Esperanto, and Latin. This deluxe volume brings all of the Pooh stories together in one full-color, large-format book. The texts are complete and unabridged, and all of the illustrations, each gloriously recolored, are included. Here are the beloved stories of Pooh stuck in Rabbit's doorway, of gloomy Eeyore and his nearly forgotten birthday, of playing Poohsticks on the bridge, and so many more. Elegant yet simple, whimsical yet wise, this classic edition is a book to savor and treasure.
PRESCHOOL: The Lilac Fairy Book by Andrew Lang
Price: $19.95

It is almost impossible to envision what childhood would be like without the enchanting world of fairyland. Underground lands where the sun shines, wolves disguised as rams, giants and dwarves, monsters and magicians, fairies and ogres-these are the companions who thrill young boys and girls of all lands and times, as Andrew Lang's phenomenally successful collections of stories have proved. From the day that they were first printed, the Lang fairy tale books of many colors have entertained thousands of youngsters, as they have also brought pleasure to parents who have read these classics to their children. In the Lilac Fairy Book, a large number of the tales-including a variation on the beauty and the beast story called "Brown Bear of Norway"-are from Irish sources; the Welsh Mabinogion provided the Arthurian legend of "The Winning of Olwen"; and other tales are from the more exotic traditions of India, Portugal, Brittany, Scandinavia. All in all, this collection contains 33 stories, all narrated in clear, lively prose. Not only are Lang's collections generally considered to contain the best English versions of the standard stories; they are also the richest and widest in range. His position as one of England's foremost folklorists as well as a first-rate editor makes his collections unmatchable in the English language.
