Reviews

"Beautifully illustrated with humanistic, old-fashioned washes, Walker's true tale is a low-key heart warmer about an unexpected interspecies bond." --Booklist

"Readers will be captivated by the fictionalized picture book account of the bear that eventually became the inspiration for A.A. Milne's acclaimed "Winnie-the-Pooh" series." --School Library Journal

"Ideal for Winnie the Pooh fans, this clear, straightforward biography reveals the bear behind the tale." --Kirkus Reviews

"Walker's short, descriptive text provides the essentials of the story, and Voss's watercolor illustrations portray the unusual situation with a mix of realism and humor." --The Horn Book

"This is an intriguing and well-written look at a different era....Voss' watercolor and pen and ink illustrations paint a casual and affectionate portrait of man and bear." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)
