Set in the land of Zamonia, this exuberant, highly original fantasy from Walter Moers features an unlikely hero. Rumo is a little Wolperting—a domesticated creature somewhere between a deer and a dog—who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way through the Overworld and the Netherworld.

Really enjoyed another great Walter Moers book. The story was full of great moments and rich universe of zamonia. The production was well done with voice altering and other effects to bring the characters to life. But there were many moments when the high pitch altered narrator stung my ears through my cars audio system. Not as bad when listening with a pair of headphones or just on my phones normal speaker. My wife stopped listening with me in road trips because of the annoying voices.
