HAPPY DAYS

HAPPY DAYS

BY A.A. MILNE

NEW YORK GEORGE H. DORAN COMPANY

FOREWORD

This book is made up from my contributions to _Punch_--a casual selection from the four hundred or so which have appeared in the last nine years. It is offered to the American public as a sample of that _Punch_ humour (and perhaps, therefore, British humour) which Americans so often profess not to understand. According to whether they like it or do not like it, I hope they will consider it a representative or an unrepresentative sample.

A.A.M.
