  About The Book

Behind A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh is the amazing true story of a real bear.

Before Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear, rescued by Captain Harry Colebourn on route to World War I, and later was befriended by the real-life Christopher Robin. Told by Colebourn's great-granddaughter, illustrated by Sophie Blackall, and complete with primary documents from the family archive, here is a piece of our literary heritage brought to life.
