Happy birthday, A. A. Milne. The English author is most famous for his books about an anthropomorphic bear obsessed with honey, Winnie-the-Pooh. Inspired by his son Christopher’s stuffed toy (originally named Edward), Milne and artist E. H. Shepard set out to create a magical world of talking animals. Milne’s books have fascinated generations for almost 90 years, but there’s no denying that Pooh and friends are a maudlin bunch.

If you never appreciated Pooh in your youth, check out these lines that could easily be scrapped Morrissey lyrics.
