Review:

Beautifully illustrated, in effective muted tones * Parents in Touch * Utterly captivating ... A perfect introduction to the Pooh Corner adventures for generations to come * Daily Mail * This is a beautifully inspired story for children * Western Morning News * This is one of the sweetest tales I've read in a long time -- and it's based on a true story, which makes it all the more poignant ... The story is utterly enchanting from start to finish and beautifully illustrated too * Manchester Evening News * Gorgeously illustrated ... delightful * The New York Times * This fascinating true story is brought delightfully to life in Finding Winnie. Mattick's lilting narrative is complemented by Sophie Blackall's dreamily soft ink-and-watercolour drawings. * FT.com * The true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey * Good Reads * The gorgeous story of the friendship between a soldier ... and the real bear who inspired Winnie the Pooh. * The Guardian * Winnie's incredible tale is brought to life by the great-grandaughter of Winnie's rescuer in this fascinating picture book. * The School Run * How deftly and magically the author weaves this historical story: it's one that includes not only history but geography too. Equally magical are Sophie Blackall's watercolour illustrations...A winning combination through and through * Red Reading Hub *
