Today: Rumo & his Miraculous Adventures

by Walter Moers

What is it about?

In his book “Rumo and his Miraculous Adventures”, author Walter Moers tells the story of how the little Wolpertinger Rumo fights his way to adulthood in a series of exciting adventures.

Critics claim that this is the most exciting, moving and funniest of Moers’s books. The reader can accompany Wolpertinger Rumo during his adventures, which are both humorous and deadly serious. On his road to fortune, the young hero encounters danger and deadly hurdles which he has to overcome. It’s a book which certainly takes contemporary prose to a new level.

Why should I read it?

For those who love bizarre stories, fascinating characters and complex scenarios within a unique fantasy world, then this extraordinary work by Walter Moers is one for you! He enhances this exotic world with reminiscences of figures from the real world and lets everything mutate into its own kind of universe. It elegantly combines humor and earnestness and this is what makes the book so unputdownable. A fairytale, yes – but not one in the classical sense. Don’t read it to your kids!
