The Bear Went Over the Mountain
Author of stylized mysteries, heart-wrenching stories, and hilarious novels, William Kotzwinkle is a literary quickchange artist. The Bear Went Over the Mountain is about a bear who finds a manuscript in the woods, gets it published, and becomes the darling of the book world. If you don't laugh hysterically throughout this one, chances are you've been hibernating too long. It's also got the most amazing portrayal of a dog ever put down in print.
