A. A. Milne

Person  Male  Born 18/1/1882  Died 31/1/1956

Author. Born Henley House, Mortimer Road, Kilburn. Best known as the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin, named after his son. Died at his home in Hartfield, Sussex, on the edge of Ashdown Forest, where he had retired in 1955 and where the Pooh stories were set.

Londonist have posted AA Milne's London - one in an irregular series of various people's London - always interesting.

The real Christopher Robin (1920-96) recorded some of his father's songs, set to music by Harold Fraser-Simson, and was bullied at school for this. He was very close to his father and on his death he did not see his mother for the rest of her life, 15 years. Sad though this is it compares favourably with the 'afterlife' of other juvenile literary muses: see Sir J. M. Barrie for the Llewelyn Davies boys and Kenneth Grahame for his son Alastair.
