This is the moving and true story of the real bear named Winnie who eventually met up with a boy called Christopher Robin at London Zoo.
In 1914, Canadian vet Harry Colebourne was on his way to tend horses in World War 1. He followed his heart and rescued a baby bear – and named her Winnie.
Harry Colebourne’s real-life great granddaughter, Lindsay Mattick, tells this true story – with great illustrations by Sophie Blackall. The book has an album at the back that contains archive material from a century ago. Age 3+.
