The Labyrinth of Dreaming Books

Walter Moers, John Brownjohn, Optimus Yarnspinner

It has been more than two hundred years since Bookholm was destroyed by a devastating fire, as told in Moers’s The City of Dreaming Books. Hildegunst von Mythenmetz, hailed as Zamonia’s greatest writer, is on vacation in Lindworm Castle when a disturbing message reaches him, and he must return to Bookholm to investigate a mystery. The magnificently rebuilt city has once again become a metropolis of storytelling and the book trade. Mythenmetz encounters old friends and new denizens of the city - and the shadowy Invisible Theater.

Astonishingly inventive, amusing, and engrossing, this is a captivating story from the wild imagination of Walter Moers.
