Before there was Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie . . . Here begins the moving true story of a real bear adopted by soldiers during World War One.

The inspiration behind the nation's best-loved bear, Winnie-the-Pooh. In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a vet on his way to tend horses in World War One, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear.

He named her Winnie and he took her to war. In this very special book, Harry Colebourn's great-granddaughter tells the true story of this 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 called Christopher Robin . . . Finding Winnie was the winner of the 2016 Caldecott Medal
