A. A. Milne

By Jennifer Kenny
1     Do you know who Winnie-the-Pooh is? Most likely you think that is a silly question. Of course you do! He's probably the most famous bear of all time. He is the star of books, cartoons, and movies. He's the "Bear of Very Little Brain." Where did Winnie-the-Pooh come from? Who invented him? Well, the man responsible for him was A.A. Milne.
 
2     Alan Alexander Milne was born on January 18, 1882. His parents were Sarah Marie and John Vince Milne. He was the youngest son in the family. A.A. Milne was raised in the environment of Henley House, the school for which his father was the preparatory schoolmaster. He was there along with his brothers David Barrett Milne and Kenneth John Milne.
 
3     At Henley House, A.A. Milne was inspired by a teacher named H.G. Wells. Wells later became a famous writer. From Henley House, Milne went to Westminster School and then on to Trinity College in Cambridge. There he edited and wrote for Granta, the student magazine.
 
4     After Milne was finished with school, his father gave him some money so he could begin a career as an author. When the money ran out, he began a job as a freelance writer for a local magazine called Punch. There he became the assistant editor, which was helpful because his first book was a failure.
