‘Here is Edward Bear coming down the stairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it.’            A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Poo
