A Wild Ride through the 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.
In a world between legend and dream, in a time between childhood and adulthood, Walter Moers narrates the exhilarating adventures of 12–year–old Gustave, a boy who aspires to be a great artist. But first, Gustave must pit himself against giants and a Siamese Twin Tornado. He will also encounter the Most Monstrous of All Monsters, rescue a beautiful damsel from a dragon, traverse a forest swarming with evil spirits, navigate a Galactic Gully, and meet a dream princess, a talking horse, and even his own self. Having made a wager with death for nothing less than his life and soul, Gustave must travel from the earth to the moon and back in a single night.
