" 3.5 stars. I got this for the charming illustrations (I'm in love with Sophie Blackall), but I ended up learning the true history of Winnie the Pooh, BEFORE A. A. Milne. The pictures in the back were BEAUTIFUL. " said.

"A couple years ago, I read Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear — a children’s book that shares the true story behind Winnie-the-Pooh. It was a little 54-paged picture book, appropriate for a young child. However, in this new installment, Mattick takes that brief glimpse and broadens it into a complete 244-paged tale full of both truth and fantasy elements.

In this book, the reader is witnessing Mattick tell the story of Winnie to her son, young Cole. There are plenty of hard facts and dates and names of real people who were part of the true story of Winnie. And Captain Harry Colebourn’s real diary entries mark the dates and locations along the way. However, I loved how these truths were intertwined with vivid imagination. In the end, we learn that Cole is the great, great, great grandson of Harry Colebourn — he was even named after him! Such a precious story for those of us who grew up loving Winnie-the-Pooh.

" I ended up in tears at the end of this book. Such a sweet look into the like of Winnie. Beautifully written and illustrated. Read it in one sitting because I simply couldn't put it down. " said.

" Is a very cute and somewhat sad book. I liked how it was written by a relative of Harry Colebourn. " said.

" I read this in about an hour at Barnes and Nobel. It sucked me and was just perfect. I loved the illustrations throughout, the story expanded on the similar picture book, and it was a fantastic mix of history, storytelling, and imagination. " said.

" I loved this old fashioned story based on the real life of Winnie the Pooh! " said.

" 4.5 Really cute with a style reminiscent of the original Winnie the Pooh books. " said.

" Delightful! A lovely middle grade novel all about the real Winnie-the-Pooh. If you like Katherine Applegate’s novels, try this. " said.
