A delightfully illustrated cult novel- literary satire and epic adventure.Within the first 15 pages I was carried away by the sheer craziness of it all. Some Minipirates find a baby bear with blue fur inside a walnut shell floating on the ocean towards a giant whirlpool. They rescue him and teach him about knots and waves- and that a good white lie is often considerably more exciting than the truth. Then- when he outgrows their ship to such an extent that he is in danger of sinking it- they abandon him on an island with a bottle of seaweed juice and a loaf of seaweed bread. Thus Bluebear comes to the end of his first life and embarks on his second. By the end of the book- he has expended exactly half of his 27 lives. Again and again- Moers confounds our expectations as the narrative twists and turns- travels backwards and forwards in time. Part science fiction- part fairy tale- part myth- part epic- the book is a satire on all these genres and so constantly satirises itself. Very amusing - Daily Telegraph...
