i started reading this book last night and i got halfway through it. i am really enjoying it. it is funny and a little sad. a great commentary on what is going on in our world only presented in a weird (unique) way.
basically, i little teddy bear, who has willed himself to be real, is mistaken for a terrorist, is arrested and goes through all kinds of hell. we also learn about his life from the beginning. this is NOT a book for children.
this is my second Punk Penguin Book Club selection.
