Book Summary: Before Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie. 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. It is the remarkable true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh.
