About the Book

In 1914, 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.
