From award-winning author Susan Hood and rising star illustrator Jamie Green comes a nonfiction picture book perfect for fans of Finding Winnie. 

Wojtek was just an orphaned bear cub (yes, an actual wild bear!) when a group of teenaged Polish soldiers, many of whom were orphans themselves, took him into their ranks during World War ll. Wojtek quickly became a beloved and important member of the Polish II Corps. Together with his brothers in arms, Wojtek helped his friends turn the tide of World War II. This incredible true story teaches young readers about the history of World War II while also underscoring the life-changing power of teamwork and the enduring bonds of friendship and love in the face of adversity. Includes extensively researched back matter, including photographs, additional resources, further reading, and more!
