While Eeyore may have been created by the imagination of A.A. Milne's
small son Christopher Robin 90 years ago, he is real enough to millions
of us who loved the books and cartoons. Today is Eeyore's birthday.
The original drawings in the book were done by E.H. Shepard.
Eeyore is the perpetually gloomy and depressed donkey. Despite this he is well loved and respected by his fellow creatures of the Hundred-Acre Wood. -- Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, and Roo. May Eeyore see many more years ahead!
