The sad little donkey
Eeyore is one of the recurring characters of the Winnie The Pooh stories, a classic of children’s literature created in England in 1926 by Alan Alexander Milne. He was inspired by his son’s games with his stuffed toys and by the bear at the London Zoo whom he would visit regularly. Winnie lives in a world where humans are almost absent except for Little John Christopher (Christopher Robin) where he plays and goes on adventures with his other animal friends. Among them, there is Eeyore, a little donkey who always has problems with his tail that he must often reattach behind his back. Eeyore is rather intelligent but very pessimistic and often melancholic. He rarely speaks for anything other than pitying.
