The true story of the iconic teddy bear who became a beloved children’s book character and continues to inspire children around the world. In this captivating biography, author Shirley Harrison follows the journey of Winnie-the-Pooh, the world’s most famous silly old bear, from his first appearance to his final resting place. Winnie-the-Pooh was “born” in an Acton toy factory in 1921. From there he traveled to Harrods where he was bought by Mrs. Daphne Milne for her baby son, Christopher Robin. At the family’s farmhouse in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, deep in the “Hundred Acre Wood,” author A.A. Milne transformed his son Christopher Robin’s playtime fantasies into the stories that would captivate readers the world over. From England, Pooh emigrated to America, spending many years as a celebrity on tour. Today, he lives in retirement in the Children’s Center of the New York Public Library along with Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga, and Piglet. Filled with family anecdotes and illustrated with photographs of the people and places that brought the bear to life, The Life and Times of the Real Winnie-the-Pooh is a biography that traces the steps of the bear himself, the Milne family, and the loveable character they created.

The story of Winnie, the real Canadian bear that captured the heart of Christopher, son of A.A. Milne, and became immortalized in the Winnie the Pooh stories, is told against the backdrop of the First World War. In August 1914, a Canadian soldier and veterinarian named Lieutenant Harry Colebourn, en route to a training camp in Quebec, purchased a black bear cub in White River, Ontario, which he named Winnipeg. First a regimental mascot for Canadians training for wartime service, Winnie then became a star attraction at the London Zoo, and ultimately inspired one of the best-loved characters in children’s literature. For those many generations of readers who adored Winnie the Pooh, and for those intrigued by the unique stories embedded in Canadian history, this book is a feast of information about a one-of-a-kind bear set during a poignant period of world history. Today Winnie "lives on" at the London Zoo, in White River and in Winnipeg. Her remarkable legacy is celebrated in many ways – from statues and plaques to festivals and museum galleries.
