A.A. Milne
(1882-1856) engelsk forfatter. Skriver adskillige lystspil og en enkelt kriminalroman. Er i 9 år bidragyder til Punch. Udgiver en række populære børnerim, som stadig er stadig elsket af engelske børn - men som dog ikke har fristet danske oversættere. Det har derimod historierne om Peter Plys - sønnens bamse - og hans venner Grislingen, Ninka Ninus, Æslet, Tigerdyret og de andre enkle - men eviggyldige - karakterer. Den første danske oversættelse kommer i 1930. Milne dør i 1956.
