Once on a Time

Once on a Time - A.A. Milne I found this book at the library when I was in college. At the time, I didn't know anything about Milne except Pooh. I was surprised to see another title. This satire of a fairy tale is quite funny and would appeal to kids who know what a fairy tale plot is supposed to be as well as adults. Milne is a witty and intelligent writer. I don't believe the Seattle Public Library has it any more, so I finally found myself a used copy.
