Recommended for: People who still have your teddy bear
Read in March, 2007

You have to give the author of this book credit for originality if nothing else. The concept of the book, a former stuffed animal coming to life, being mistaken for a long sought after terrorist and put on trial for multiple crimes against humanity provides lots of opportunity for laugther, insight, and, if you're a wimp like me who still has her now 21 year old teddy bear at home, tears. The bear of the title, Winkie is most sympathetic and if you're willing to supsend disbelief and accept that there are no answers as to why Winkie has come to life, the book will afford many touching moments and some social commentary. It's definitely strange and doesn't altogether make sense, and there is no complete and tidy wrap up, but it's sweet and moving all the same. And the pictures will either make you laugh out loud or cry. Or both.
