I picked this up at random in Blackwell's in Oxford, both because I liked the cover and because the people who stack the shelves there tend to know what they are about, and I thought it was excellent - four and a half stars really. I wonder if Oxford is one of the models for "Buchheim" where this is set, with the Norrington Room in Blackwell's and the Radcliffe Science Library as models for the catacombs? And I wonder who the model for the protagonist (a fat dragon-dinosaur-poet) is? Moers himself?

I've since read Moers' earlier book "Die 13 1/2 Leben des Kapit'n Blaubaer" which I didn't enjoy quite so much but which gives the back-history to "Traumenden Buecher" and I would recommend reading "Blaubaer" first. (Both have been translated into English btw).

Great fun. No urang-utans but a huge array of other bibliophile creatures!

This is a fabulous and intricate web of fantastic fantasy fiction interwoven with moral messages and mythical creatures. It is a tale of adventure, good and evil, literary adoration, underground worlds and above land intrigues. Imagination enough to feed Victoria Falls has been poured into this book, in its plot, characters, its worlds. The tome is illustrated beautifully by exquisite ink drawings showing not only the characters, aspects of the story, but also forming part of the story itself. The book plays with your imagination and with your senses. It is a delightful experience. When you get to the end of it, you only wish you had not yet read it at all, so that you could relive the experience all over again.

For those who like to let their imagination roam and are not afraid to venture down unchartered passages, pick up this book and slip inside.

To be enjoyed by older and younger alike.
