    This novel reminded of the tale of the emperor's clothes Not because of a similar story but because some people will see wondrous things while others will see nothing I'm in the latter categoryA Raymond Chandler style pot boiler with stuffed animal characters? Well it's differentDon't waste your money In fact if it's free don't waste your time

    This is one of the top five weirdest books I have ever read It takes place in a world of stuffed animals but that has both almost no bearing on the story and is key to the main plot What I mean is that it's never revealed that actually they're toys in a toystore or a messed up version of the 100 Acre Woods The fact that they are stuffed animals is not part of some plot twist The th

    A fictional book about fur animals that have a life of their own they live in a big city divided into four uarters animals are married workers and do all kinds of things that we humans do The story intertwined with tension and mostly told from a pair of bears twins It's strange when it comes from me writing this but this book highly recommended
