Winston is an ambitious bear who wants to change the world - but first he must learn to change himself.

Winston the bear lives in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world. Much like a certain other famous Winston, when Winston the bear speaks, others listen. He rallies the polar bear community together, and urges them to join his campaign against global warming. He writes and distributes a book on the subject, and secures everyone's support on the issue - everyone except one surprising naysayer. His wife!

She points out Winston's hypocrisy - the ever-polluting cigar he smokes. If he wants to change the world so badly, he's going to have to start with himself. Winston can't help but agree, and decides to quit smoking, thereby inspiring the other bears to go public with their green message.

A wonderful, accessible addition to the green-themed titles for younger readers!

Some fun extras in this story include Winston's own "book" and some further information about climate change and about our hero's namesake, Winston Churchill.
