Now We Are Six is a collection of poems that is part of the larger Winnie-the-Pooh imaginative world even though these poems are mostly children's verses. Milne and illustrator Ernest H. Shepard still pepper the book with written and illustrated allusions to the Hundred Acre Woods, hence this post-script from the volume's introduction: "Pooh wants us to say that he thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won't mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages by mistake."
