About the Author

Barbara-Ann Gamboa Lewis, daughter of a Filipino father and Irish mother, grew up in the Philippines. When she was seven years old Japan bombed Manila, pushing the Philippines into World War II. This book is an autobiographical account of her childhood during the years of Japanese occupation and American liberation, written for her grandchildren and for children everywhere. Mrs. Lewis believes that children between the ages of 8 and 12 years, regardless of their cultural background, can identify with Pooh's experiences in the story.
Professor Lewis was on the faculty of Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, in the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, for 27 years. She is retired and lives with her husband, Roy Lewis, in Castro Valley, California, where she has a small violin-making shop. She has three grown children and six grandchildren.
