The Bear Went Over The Mountain
by William Kotzwinkle
The bear opens the briefcase, examines the novel, and sees that it has lots of sex and lots of fishing -- just about everything a bear would want in a novel. So, the bear steals some clothes and takes the novel to New York. Soon, the bear has an agent, a publicist, and a book tour.
All this may sound silly, but Kotzwinkle makes it work. A delightful book from start to end. (order )
