 In 1807, Sam Siegbert is born in southern Germany. Sam’s favorite pastime is carpentry, much to his father’s displeasure. His mother says he has a gift from God in his hands. After moving to America, he builds a wooden chair with the word WILLKOMMEN on the back. The chair’s back panel was later marked with welcomes by four generations of the family in four different languages.

After the family lost track of the old chair, the author created a new life for it among new owners from other corners of the world. In its lifetime, the rocking chair, with its earliest word WILLKOMMEN, stood for openness, hospitality, and acceptance to all who owned it or rocked safely in its embrace.

 

 A contemporary master of the nursery tale brings her unique imagination to a beloved classic.

First published in 1924—two years before Winnie-the-Pooh—A. A. Milne’s When We Were Very Young is among the most familiar and cherished works in children’s literature. Now, Rosemary Wells brings her signature cast of animal and child characters to a dozen of Milne’s best-loved poems, including “Disobedience,” “The King’s Breakfast,” and “Buckingham Palace” (which stars the one and only Christopher Robin). This musical and memorable edition is by turns traditional and modern, with both delightful charm and wry                 sensibility.
