Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh.Harry Colebourn's real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey--from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England ... And finally to the London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend: a real boy named Christopher Robin.
