Winnie; Sally M. Walker

Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-PoohWinnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-Pooh by Sally M. Walker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed the backstory to how Winnie (named for the city, Winnipeg) came to London and was introduced to Christopher Milne but... that last part was disappoining. There should have been more about how Christopher actually was allowed to play with the bear (just think of the lawsuits today!) and how the "the-Pooh" was appended to his toy. It felt like after all the build-up, that part was given short shrift.
