Another of the books i managed to read whilst in hospital The red house mystery is A.A. Milne’s only ever detective story, which is a shame as i really enjoyed this book. A.A. Milne who is probably best known for his books about Winnie-the-Pooh could obviously write for many genres as he was originally Assistant editor for Punch magazine and also a respected author of both plays and novels, including The red house mystery before becoming world famous with his loveable stories about Winnie-the-pooh.
I’m surprised this hasn’t been made into a one off TV special as it would be perfect for a Sunday afternoon. As with all detective novels in this this vain i always try to guess the culprit and although i did get the correct person, i got it for the wrong reasons. Thank heavens i’m not a detective then, i don’t think my reasoning would stand up in a court of law.
