Product description


“A buoyant, thoughtful narrative with strong themes of friendship, courage, loyalty and kindness. . . . This engaging little novel would make a wonderful read-aloud in the classroom or at bedtime.” — Canadian Children’s Book News

“Oh my, how I love Winnie’s Great War. An incandescent celebration of friendship and courage, this perfect little book is one to cherish. A triumph.”
Katherine Applegate, author of the Endling series and The One and Only Ivan

“Moving and imaginative, this extraordinary story of the most beloved of bears is beautifully conceived. The blend of truth, history and story is whimsical, winning and wonderful. I loved reading Winnie’s Great War: it made me laugh and it made me cry.” — Alice Kuipers, author of Me and Me and the Violet and Victor Series

“The spirit of Winnie-the-Pooh is captured beautifully in this retelling of the real bear’s adventures.” — Kallie George, author of the Heartwood Hotel series

From the Back Cover


Even as a cub, there was something special about that bear. She longed to climb higher than any bear had ever gone. She wasn’t afraid to ask a squirrel for help. She wondered if there was anything bigger than the Woods.

And then, on August 24, 1914, she met Lieutenant Harry Colebourn. He named her Winnie and made her the mascot of the Second Canadian Infantry Brigade. Together they crossed the ocean to where the Great War raged. It was a time of close calls, thrilling triumphs, painful sacrifice, and great friendship. By war’s end, millions knew her name.

It’s not every bear who makes history.

Sophie Blackall is a Brooklyn-based Australian artist. She has illustrated over forty-five books for children, including the Ivy and Bean series, and has twice received the Randolph Caldecott Medal, in 2016 for Finding Winnie and in 2019 for Hello Lighthouse. She has also written and illustrated books for grown ups.

Blackall has collaborated with many notable authors, including Annie Barrows, Kate DiCamillo, Rukhsana Khan, Meg Rosoff and Judith Viorst.

Her editorial illustrations have appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York City MTA and the MoMA Design Store. She has worked internationally with UNICEF and Save the Children as an artist and advocate for global health and literacy initiatives.

"Blackall, who elevates everything she illustrates, has a knack for using clever details to get the humor across."--Booklist

"Khan has an ideal collaborator in Sophie Blackall, whose Chinese ink-and-watercolor drawings convey exquisite detail and precise emotion. Like all the best picture books, "Big Red Lollipop" amply rewards close examination." - New York Times

"One of the best picture-book artists around, Blackall offers winsome art that is interesting in its use of perspective, perceptive in its depiction of family dynamics, and just plain adorable in its effort to make ferrets fetching. This is a book that's clever in every sense of the word: skillful, original, and witty." -Booklist
