Publisher Marketing: In The City of Dreaming Books, Walter Moers transports us to a magical world where reading is a remarkable adventure.

The search for the author's identity takes Yarnspinner to Bookholm--the so-called City of Dreaming Books. On entering its streets, our hero feels as if he has opened the door of a gigantic second-hand bookshop. His nostrils are assailed by clouds of book dust, the stimulating scent of ancient leather, and the tang of printer's ink. Soon, though, Yarnspinner falls into the clutches of the city's evil genius, Pfistomel Smyke, who treacherously maroons him in the labyrinthine catacombs underneath the city, where reading books can be genuinely dangerous.

Only those intrepid souls who are prepared to join Yarnspinner on his perilous journey should read this book. We wish the rest of you a long, safe, unutterably dull and boring life!

"A salmagundi of whimsy, imagination and book lore . . . remarkable fun." --Cleveland Plain Dealer
