Bushman Lives!

Bushman Lives! - Daniel Pinkwater Quirky. Quiet. Quaint.

It feels like Wes Anderson a bit, not as good, but sharing a similar feel. It's charmingly weird, but it seems more focused on being odd than actually telling a story or doing anything all that interesting.

[sort-of spoiler] Despite the information on it in the beginning, the title's namesake ends up as just an odd running joke, and absolutely nothing happens with that little detail. It gets more annoying when a new detail about Bushman's location is introduced, and then the most that comes from that is the vague implication of the boat traveling there at the end. [End of sort-of spoiler]

It's got the character types and humor down, it just needs an actual story.
