Young and young-at-heart fans of Winnie-the-Pooh will adore this true tale of Canadian veterinarian Harry Colebourn, who left his native Winnipeg to care for soldiers' horses during World War I…and made an unexpected friend along the way. When Harry impulsively purchases a bear cub from a trapper at the train station, the little bear he dubs Winnipeg—nicknamed Winnie—is adopted by his regiment and quickly gains a reputation as a "Remarkable Bear." But when the time comes to ship out to France, Harry makes an emotional decision…one that will bring Winnie into the life of a little boy called Christopher Robin. Written by Harry Colebourn's great-granddaughter and enhanced with photographs of the real Winnie, Finding Winnie is a heartwarming story of the unexpected friendship that inspired a literary icon. For ages 4 and up. (KG)
