Winnie the Pooh? No, but a pretty good mystery according to the sources below:

"Though Milne is immediately associated with Winnie-the-Pooh and pals, he nonetheless wrote a number of adult titles, including this 1922 novel in which guests at a country estate become amateur sleuths when a shooting occurs and all evidence points toward their host."

"Of course it's very hampering being a detective, when you don't know anything about detecting, and when nobody knows that you're doing detection, and you can't have people up to cross-examine them, and you have neither the energy nor the means to make proper inquiries; and, in short, when you're doing the whole thing in a thoroughly amateur, haphazard way. -A.A. Milne (The Red House Mystery)"

Hope you enjoy it.

Please: If you find mistakes, I'll do my best to correct them.

Thanks Don - I was thinking of doing that one myself! I take it you've been browsing the PG "Crime" bookshelf?

Hi Harry -- I hope it looks good...but I would really like to do more 30's-styled mysteries. I do have my hands full with some other projects, however.
