Adopted from A. A. Milne
One day Winnie-the-Pooh got up early in the morning and went for a walk in the forest. There he saw his friend Eey ore1, the donkey2. Eey ore looked very sad.
“Why are you so sad?” asked Pooh.
“It’s my birthday today, but I haven’t got any presents,” said Eeyore.
“Oh! Many happy returns of the day, Eeyore!”
“And many happy returns to you, Pooh.”
“But it isn’t my birthday, Eeyore.”
“No, it’s my birthday.”
“But you said ‘many happy returns’ to me.”
“Did I? Oh, I wanted to say ‘thank you’, Pooh-Bear.”
Pooh ran home to get Eeyore a present. Near the house he saw Piglet. “Do you know it is Eeyore’s birthday today? Poor donkey, he is so sad.”
“Why?” asked Piglet.
“It is his birthday today, but he hasn’t got any present. What can we give him as a present, Piglet?”
“I haven’t got any idea, Pooh…”
“Oh, Piglet, I’ve got an idea. I shall give him ajar of honey.”
“And I shall give him a red balloon.”
“You’re very kind, Piglet!”
“You are so kind, Pooh!”
In the evening the happy friends went to Eeyore’s birthday party
