Synopses & Reviews
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".
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.
