Was there actually a real Winnie the Pooh? From her early days with her mama in the Canadian forest, to her remarkable travels with the Veterinary Corps during the Great War, and all the way to the London Zoo where she met Christopher Robin Milne and inspired the creation of the immortal Pooh, the real-life Winnie is on a great adventure. Drawing on the writings of the bear's original owner, Captain Harry Colebourn—and graced with Sophie Blackall's iustrations—this novel for readers 8 to 12 follows the historical adventures of one extraordinary bear, a tale that will only increase your appreciation for A.A. Milne's stories.

"A work of undeniable charm. This is distinctively old-fashioned, gentle storytelling that children will enjoy reading aloud."—NYTBR
