Read full description of the books Eeyore's Gloomy Little Instruction Book (Winnie The Pooh):"EEYORE'S gloomy LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK" inspired by A. A. Milne
I must begin with my telling you that I found the book to be quite different from what I thought it was going to be. When I opened up this book I expected to find only instructions on how to be "gloomy" but I found "happy" in this book as well; like, "When your house has quite disappeared, you mustn't complain. You still have all that snow to do with what you like." I find that particularly helpful advise as it is that time of year for snow where I live and I don't know if my house may suddenly "quite disappeared,.."
There is also Clear Cut Knowledge in this book, like when Eeyore makes the incredible point, "They're funny things, Accidents. You never have them till you're having them."
I due have an issue with the book though, and that issue is when we are told, "When your tail is missing, remember that you have every right to Mope." When I think of the word, "Mope" I naturally put it with "Pouting" and Pouting is not a nice thing at all to do to one's Close Friends and Relations.
I must say that the illustrations just made the book. They are all so simple, and so cute!
Read information about the authorAlan Alexander Milne (pronounced /ˈmɪln/) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems.
A. A. Milne was born in Kilburn, London, to parents Vince Milne and Sarah Marie Milne (née Heginbotham) and grew up at Henley House School, 6/7 Mortimer Road (now Crescent), Kilburn, a small public school run by his father. One of his teachers was H. G. Wells who taught there in 1889–90. Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. While there, he edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine. He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's work came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later an assistant editor.
Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and later, after a debilitating illness, the Royal Corps of Signals. He was discharged on February 14, 1919.
After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour. During World War II, Milne was one of the most prominent critics of English writer P. G. Wodehouse, who was captured at his country home in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse made radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the light-hearted broadcasts made fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge on his former friend by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in some of his later stories, and claiming that Milne "was probably jealous of all other writers.... But I loved his stuff."
He married Dorothy "Daphne" de Sélincourt in 1913, and their only son, Christopher Robin Milne, was born in 1920. In 1925, A. A. Milne bought a country home, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex. During World War II, A. A. Milne was Captain of the Home Guard in Hartfield & Forest Row, insisting on being plain 'Mr. Milne' to the members of his platoon. He retired to the farm after a stroke and brain surgery in 1952 left him an invalid and by August 1953 "he seemed very old and disenchanted".
He was 74 years old when he passed away in 1956.
