Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book has sold 250,000 hardback copies in Germany, where Captain Bluebear is a well-known cartoon hero. "Part science fiction, part fairy tale, part myth, part epic, the book is a satire on all these genres... very amusing" "Daily Telegraph".

Synopsis:

Unlike cats, bluebears have 27 lives, which can be very handy when one considers the manner in which the hero of this story repeatedly manages to avoid death only by a paw's breadth. The story describes Captain Bluebear's first 13 and a half lives.

Jonathan, March 9, 2008 (view all comments by Jonathan)
Pure fantasy, an imaginative string of tall tales written (purportedly) by Bluebear, recounting the first half of the 27 lives that all bluebears have. There are adventures with Minipirates, daring last-minute rescues, lessons from a professor with seven brains, the city of Atlantis, and encounters with a multitude of other beasts, common and otherwise (mostly otherwise). It's unlike any book you've ever read.
