I've uploaded sections 7 & 8! :D :D

I found a mistake in the Table of Contents - it makes no mention of the poem "The Wrong House", which starts on page 63. So it turns out there will be 45 poems, not 44. No worry; it will still be 10 sections.

Summary for the catalog:

A.A. Milne wrote many poems to entertain his young son, Christopher Robin Milne, who appears to have been about three when "When We Were Very Young" was published. The book is a collection of 45 poems that celebrate a world and a point of view that a very young person could understand and enjoy. It became a best-seller.

Christopher Robin is introduced as a character in some of the poems. We first meet him in the Preface, "Just Before We Begin." In it we learn of a swan which he feeds upon a lake and who he has named "Pooh." Milne comments on the fortuitous rhyming of that name with the lowing of the local cattle, "moo," and intends us to believe that that led to the idea of writing the poems that comprise "When We Were Very Young." Later, of course, this name became attached to a rather lovable bear who had whole books of his adventures written by Milne over the next few years. We will meet that teddy bear in one of poems of this book!

Section 7 PL OK!

Your new addition to the intro will be most helpful to readers.

I never use keywords myself, personally - so I'm at a loss for what to use. Suggestions? Kevin? :hmm:


EDIT:
I found these at a bookseller site:

Fiction, Children's Literature, Childhood, Poetry, A. A. Milne, Winnie The Pooh, Christopher Robin

the cd cover - you usually make it 2 pages when folded not just 1 big one

The .doc included is the fold-out. I see that the link for the CD case insert points to the printer-resolution cover, not the insert.
