Finding Winnie : the story of the real bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh

Mattick, Lindsay2016
Books
Before there was Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie. In 1914, Harry Colebourne, a vet on his way to tend horses in World War 1, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, and he took her to war. Harry Colebourne'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 an army base in England, and finally to London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend - a boy named Christopher Robin.
