The only child of A. A. Milne, the celebrated author of the series of Winnie the Pooh and children's light verse. While the first was loosely based on the second, the real-life Christopher struggled with the perpetual identification with the forever young fictional character. Following his disapproved marriage, and resulting estrangement from his parents, and a career as a bookseller, Christoper Robin Milne wrote a series of 4 books of memoirs. This book takes selections from those memoirs to weave together the autobiographical account of the real life Christopher Robin in all his many facets, ultimately coming to terms with his unsought, unwelcome celebrity..
