Pooh Corner Hartfield


An evocative childhood memoir by the much-loved illustrator of "Winnie the Pooh" and "The Wind in the Willows". In this autobiography, E.H. Shepard describes a classic Victorian childhood. Shepard grew up in the 1880s in Saint John's Wood with his brother and sister.

He was surrounded by domestic servants and maiden aunts, in a an age when horse-drawn buses and hansom cabs crowded the streets. Recalling this time with charm and humour, Shepard illustrates these scenes in his own distinctive style.
