Who knew that the story of Winnie-the-Pooh was inspired by an actual bear?  During World War I, a young soldier and veteranarian purchased and raised an American black bear cub that he named Winnipeg (aka Winnie).  After being deployed, the soldier sent the bear to stay at the London Zoo, where a young boy named Christopher Robin first met her.  Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-Pooh combines an amazing story with wonderful illustrations that the whole family will love.  Recommended for ages 5 and up.
