Mr. Milne, headmaster of the Hastings School of Boys met the ship I, Anibal de Paula Lopes, arrived on from Brazil and took me up to Hastings. I stayed at his house until I learned to speak English.
Wanneer ik uit Brazilië aankwam, was het was het hoofd van 'the Hastings School of Boys' dat mij, Anibal de Paula Lopes kwam afhalen. Ik verbleef bij hem totdat ik de engelse taal machtig was.
Some books, such as those A.A. Milne wrote for his son Christopher Robin during the 1920s speak as profoundly to adults as they do to children. The characters Milne created – Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo and Tigger – have become eternal symbols of childhood innocence, and are as popular as ever. Whether it is the ‘wobbly spelling’, the oblique, almost absurdly funny conversations, or the enchanting hand-coloured illustrations of E.H. Shepard, Winnie-the-Pooh books provide page after page of incomparable pleasure.
