I did not understand this book at all. I liked it, But, I didn't understand it. ( )

Read in one quick sitting, out of duty to read through the 2013 Carnegie Medal shortlist. Characters too thinly drawn, minuscule plot, not memorable. Not a medal winner. ( )

A boy, looking to go to the other side, hops into a bear's boat for what he is assured will not be too long of a journey. Hours later, the bear continues to assure the boy that They. Are. Not. Lost. Sometimes unforseen anomalies arise, you know.

Days later the two have run out of sandwiches.

A simple, quiet adventure story perfectly tailored for a bedtime read-aloud, A Boy and a Bear in a Boat recalls cozy, character-rich classics with plenty to think about, yet is one of a kind and quite quirky. ( )
