First UK edition with a single number 1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing. Price still on dustjacket. Author’s first novel. “After suffering decades of brutal neglect from the children who once love him, Winkie, a mangy old teddy bear of indeterminate gender, realises that he can actually move. He hurls himself off the shelf, jumps out of the window, and takes to the forest. But just as he is discovering the joys and wonders of mobility, self-determination, even love, Winkie’s luck ends. Having come upon the cabin of a reclusive professor, Winkie finds himself surrounded by the military who instantly conclude that he is the evil mastermind behind dozens of terrorist attacks that have been traced to the forest. Terrified and confused, Winkie is brought to trial, where the prosecution attempts to seal the little bear’s fate by calling upon witnesses from the trials of Galileo, Socrates, John Scopes and Oscar Wilde.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
