synopsis
Some Minipirates find a baby bear with blue fur, inside a walnut shell, floating on the ocean towards a giant whirlpool. They rescue him and teach him about knots and waves - and that a good white lie is often considerably more exciting than the truth. Then, when he outgrows their ship to such an extent that he is in danger of sinking it, they abandon him on an island with a bottle of seaweed juice and a loaf of seaweed bread. Thus Bluebear comes to the end of his first life and embarks on his second. By the end of the book, a peaceful interlude following his confrontation with the infamous Spiderwitch, he has explored a lost continent and expended exactly half of his 27 lives.
