I just started this. On chapter 3 and it's just starting to get good. I was nervous because it started slow and I'd heard such great things - glad to hear you loved it. I've heard "Sarah's Key" is amazing, and my friend Lindsey recommended "I'd Know Your Anywhere." Let me know if you read either!
The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear "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."
I just ordered BOTH! Thank you!
