    Playful enough for young adult readers, yet as intricate and engaging as any work of literary fiction, The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear has the plot of a novel and the spontaneity and humor of a vintage comic book, making it already an instant cult classic.

    Hillarious and fantastic book and great listen

    At first I'd like to mention that all of Walter Moers books are kind of either you love them or you don't like them - I don't think there's much inbet..Show More »

    Optimus Yarnspinner inherits from his godfather an unpublished manuscript by an unknown writer and sets off to track down the mysterious author, who disappeared into Bookholm—the so-called City of Dreaming Books.

    What a ride!
