FINDING WINNIE: THE TRUE STORY OF THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS BEAR, by Lindsay Mattick, illustrated by Sophie Blackall

 

A #1 New York Times Bestseller and Winner of the Caldecott Medal about the remarkable true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh.


In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian on his way to tend horses in World War I, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, after his hometown of Winnipeg, and he took the bear to war.
Harry Colebourn's real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey--from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England...
And finally to the London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend: a real boy named Christopher Robin.

 
Before Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie. And she was a girl!
