review Winnie The Remarkable Tale of a Real Bear Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Who could care for a bear When Harry Colebourn saw a baby bear for sale at the train station he knew he could care for it Harry was a veterinarian But he was also a soldier in training for World War I Harry named the bear Winnie short for Winnipeg his company’s home town and he brought her alon While there is indeed very much to love and appreciate with regard to Sally M Walker s Winnie The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie the Pooh and I do absolutely love the combination of authentic photographs and Jonathan D Voss expressive accompanying illustrations which while perhaps a tad too cartoon like at times always manage to capture especially Winnie the bear in all of her many guises and emotions considering that Winnie The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie the Pooh is also and perhaps even first and foremost a story of WWI of the so called Great War I am kind of feeling that the author has in no way adeuately presented what WWI was has not really sufficiently pointed out the horrors of what WWI truly signified For while I of course did not expect to read minute details about Harry Colebourne s battle experiences in France and while I guess the possible dangers of battle are at least mildly alluded to once or twice I for one have been left with the rather painful feeling that the narrative really does not all that much show that the soldiers training to go to France to fight were in fact training to fight in Hell that many did not return and many were scarred for life both physically and mentally not to mention the battlefield animals specially the horses Yes the story of how Harry finds Winnie and how Winnie later ends up in a London zoo where she is noticed by author AA Milne and his son Christopher Robin and becomes the inspiration for Winnie the Pooh is sweetly engaging but I most definitely have been a bit personally disappointed and even rather upset that Sally M Walker basically does so very much gloss over the First World War that she really does in no way portray it and even in the otherwise excellent author s note at the back as the horror the all encompassing tragedy it represented that even Winnie s sojourn as the uasi mascot of Harry Colebourne s unit whilst in training is somehow portrayed as a fun and adventurous romp with the potential dangers of battle only rather vaguely hinted at and with regard to Winnie the bear and not with regard to the soldiers who would be shipping off to fight in the trenches of France And thus only three stars for Winnie The True Story of the Bear who Inspired Winnie the Pooh because while I can and do appreciate the author s and the illustrator s efforts and have indeed uite enjoyed the story especially how Harry purchases Winnie as an orphaned bear cub to save her life and how she becomes the inspiration for AA Milne s Winnie the Pooh the to and for me rather uncritical and almost nonchalant portrayal of WWI leave a bit to be personally desired although I would still tend to recommend Winnie The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie the Pooh but with the caveat that I do think that WWI has been approached in a rather trivial unserious laxly uncritical and actually almost accepting and condoning promoting manner
