Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-The-Pooh - Sally M. Walker, John Voss, Jonathan D. Voss

The true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh begins when an army veterinarian purchases a pet bear, Winnipeg, for twenty dollars. Winnipeg, shortened to Winnie (Holt, $17.99), is gentle and loving and adored by the soldiers who take care of her. But when the Great War calls the troops elsewhere, Winnie’s human companion must leave her behind in order to keep her safe. Author Sally M. Walker and illustrator Jonathan D. Voss depict Winnie’s arrival at the London Zoo and how a small boy named Christopher Robin befriended the curious bear, accompanied by his father, A.A. Milne. Ages 5-8. Allison Witten
