The Bear Went Over The Mountain

I bought this book after reading about it on the Internet. Warning: although the title makes it sound like a deceptively simple children's book, it is not!! This is not one for the kiddies to read.

This was an exceptionally entertaining tale of a bear who finds a novel manuscript in a briefcase under a tree in the forest and takes it to New York and makes it big as an author. Written by William Kotzwinkle, who also happens to be the author of ET, this is a funny and endearing parody of the publishing world and what it means to succeed in the human world.

A quick read that makes you laugh and makes you think. Definitely worth checking out.
