Book Description

31 Dec 1998
Once upon a time a big black bear discovered a manuscript under a tree. He read it, and decided it wasn't bad. Borrowing some clothes from a local store and the name Hal Jal from the label of his favourite food, he headed to New York to seek his fortune. There he took the literary world by storm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funnier than it sounds... 28 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Admittedly, the idea of a bear finding a manuscript, and heading off to the big city with dreams of 'making it' sounds like it would need a great leap of faith, but it really works. It's simply written, without conceit. A 'modern-day parable', but such a name sells it short. It's not just a humourous version of 'The Pearl', but it's strangely almost a grown-up version of Dr. Seuss. Logic which is confusing in it's simplicity, but you just go along with it, the rewards are huge. Will make you laugh out loud, so public transport could become an interesting experience. Give this book a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely "Laugh out Loud" 1 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read it years ago and lost my copy. Hunted this copy down and read it and loved it all over again. Would someone give Kotzwinkle a new biro and get him up and running again.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply the best !!! 13 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the man that brought us ET.... but don't let that put you off!!!!! A bear came over the mountain is perhaps the most clever book ever written. Its simplicity would have you believe that it is for children, its cover, would have you believe that it's for children, but this is a story of man's greed and need for his own self importance. Beautifully told in a simplistic way, it is the type of book that you would come back to time and time again.
