By 1924 Milne was already a successful playwright, and published the first of his four books for children, a set of poems called When We Were Very Young, which he wrote for his son. This was followed by the storybook Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926, more poems in Now We Are Six (1927) and further stories in The House at Pooh Corner (1928).In addition to his most famous works, Milne also produced many novels, including The Red House Mystery and Two People (1931), volumes of essays, detective stories and light verse, and continued to be a prolific writer until his death in 1956.
