City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers

Book Description

The search for the author s identity takes Yarnspinner to Bookholm the so-called City of Dreaming Books. On entering its streets, our hero feels as if he has opened the door of a gigantic second-hand bookshop. His nostrils are assailed by clouds of book dust, the stimulating scent of ancient leather, and the tang of printer s ink. Soon, though, Yarnspinner falls into the clutches of the city's evil genius, Pfistomel Smyke, who treacherously maroons him in the labyrinthine catacombs underneath the city, where reading books can be genuinely dangerous. In The City of Dreaming Books, Walter Moers transports us to a magical world where reading is a remarkable adventure. Only those intrepid souls who are prepared to join Yarnspinner on his perilous journey should read this book. We wish the rest of you a long, safe, unutterably dull and boring life!"

Labyrinth of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers Labyrinth of Dreaming Books, Paperback (November 2013)

Over two hundred years ago Bookholm, the City of Dreaming Books, was destroyed by a catastrophic firestorm. Optimus Yarnspinner, who witnessed this disaster, has since become Zamonia's greatest writer and is resting on his laurels at Lindworm Castle.

Alchemaster's Apprentice by Walter Moers Alchemaster's Apprentice, Paperback (October 2010)

Malaisea, the unhealthiest town in the whole of Zamonia, is home to Echo the Crat, a multitalented creature resembling a cat in appearance. When his mistress dies, Echo finds himself out on the street. Dying of starvation, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster, Malaisea's evil alchemist-in-chief.

Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures by Walter Moers Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures, Paperback / softback (August 2007)

From the author of the cult classic "13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear" comes another fantastical journey into Zamonia. This captivating story from the unique imagination of Moers is astonishingly inventive, amusing, and engrossing.

City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers City of Dreaming Books, Paperback (March 2007)

Optimus, a young Zamonian writer, inherits very little from his godfather apart from an unpublished short story by an unknown author. This manuscript proves to be such a superb piece of writing that he can't resist the temptation to investigate the mystery surrounding the author's identity. The trail takes him to the City of Dreaming Books.
