A. A. Milne, Christopher Robin and Pooh.
This is a photo of Alan Alexander Milne who wrote The Winnie-The-Pooh stories for his son Christopher Robin Milne. If you look closely, it looks as if Piglet must be hiding in Christopher's pocket as he often did. A quote in later years by Christopher Milne in his memoir "Enchanted Places", said, "Did I do something and did my father write a story about it? Or was it the other way about, and did the story come first? He wanted ideas for stories, I wanted them for my games, and each looked toward the other for inspiration."
