A wild ride through the night

£14.99

Product description

In a world between legend and dream, in a time between childhood and adulthood, Walter Moers describes the exhilarating and comic adventures of 12-year-old Gustave, a boy who aspires one day to be a great artist. But before he can achieve this, Gustave must first tackle Mysterious Giants and a Siamese Twins Tornado; he also finds himself encountering the Greatest Monster of All, freeing a maiden from the claws of a dragon, riding through a forest full of ghosts, navigating a Galactic Gully and meeting a dream princess, a talking horse, scantily-clad Amazons and even his own self. Having made a wager with death for nothing less than his life and his soul, he must travel from the earth to the moon and back in a single night. Using twenty-one drawings from the work of Gustave Dore, the most successful illustrator of the 19th century, Walter Moers has created a wondrous and utterly delightful tale.
