Well, i don't know, but I will translate the title of the book to the left into english: The 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear: One half of the life expectations of a sea-bear: with lots of illustrations and with help of the "lexica of wonders that need explanations, existances and phenomenas, ceremonies and periphery" by Prof. Dr. Adbul Nachtigller :-)

Walter Moers' writings are simply the best "discovery" I made last year. ...But Bluebear is not a sea-bear!!!!! He happened to be in a nutshell and he couldn't explain why... well, ok, ...you should know the story.
I also recommend reading "Ensel and Krete", it's very witty!
I've seen such an original way of writing novels only in some tales by Italo Calvino ("Cosmicomics", "T zero"), but of course none is a copy of the other.

Does any1 know of any more English-translated books that I can buy. The 13 and a half Lives of Captain Bluebear was great to read and I'm only 14! (Thursday, 3 Apr 2003 13:30)

I read Bluebear when I was about 13 1/2, ironically, and it's been my favourite book ever since! It's one of those books I like to read once every year (not strictly true - I've read it at least twice this year)!
I too would like Ensel & Krete in English - is it available?

A "wilde ride through the night" is also a great read with awesome illustrations ... the concept of writing a story around a collection of picture is fertile ground for anyone with a love of image and word in fusion.
