Alan Alexander "A.A." Milne (18 January 1882 – 31 January 1956) was the creator of Winnie the Pooh and author of the original Winnie the Pooh series of books, illustrated by E.H. Shepard. These books included the original Winnie-the-Pooh, as well as The House at Pooh Corner. Milne was also noted novelist, poet and playwright, though he remains to a large degree most widely known for the stories he wrote for his son, Christopher Robin Milne, about a "tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff" named Winnie the Pooh. Most of the characters in the story were based on Christopher's toys, while Rabbit and Owl were inspired by animals his son saw.
