Told from Captain Bluebears view point, we travel with him through far away lands chased by all sorts of beasties and laugh and cry all the way. Another book leant to me by one of my nephews, I bought a copy for my niece this year and I'm currently reading my copy with my step daughter. Some of the words are a bit tricky for her but she's loving the vivid discriptions and there has been much artwork to reflect this. A brilliant bridging book from childhood to teens.

Captain Bluebear is a bear with blue fur, a creature as unique as the fantastic adventures he undergoes. Unlike cats, which have only nine lives, bluebears have twenty-seven. This is fortunate, because our hero is forever avoiding disaster by a paw's breadth. In this remarkable book, Captain Bluebear tells the story of his first thirteen-and-a-half lives spent on the mysterious continent of Zamonia, where intelligence is an infectious disease and water flows uphill, where headless giants roam deserts made of sugar, and where only Captain Bluebear's courage and ingenuity enable him to escape the dangers that lie in wait for him around every corner. In company with our indomitable hero, we enter a realm of the imagination that combines the fantasy of "Lord of the Rings and "The Neverending Story with the humour of Baron Munchausen - a wonderland where anything can exist except boredom.
