Milne, A. A.

Though A.A. Milne is best known for his children’s books, don’t expect to find Pooh Bear or Tigger in The Red House Mystery. Written a few years before Winnie the Pooh’s debuts, The Red House Mystery was dedicated to Milne’s father who delighted in mysteries. Instead of the denizens of the hundred acre wood we have a country house full of guests down for a week of golf and relaxation. Instead, when the black sheep brother of the house’s owner returns after fifteen years in Australia he is promptly murdered and the owner is missing. See another side of the well known author in the only mystery novel he ever wrote.
