9780007395118: KRABAT [Library of Lost Books edition]

One of Neil Gaiman’s favourite scary stories for children.

Set within a world of sorcery and wizardry, much like an 18th Century Harry Potter, Krabat tells the story of a 14-year-old beggar boy lured to a mysterious mill by a series of frightening dreams and apparitions.

He becomes an apprentice to the master of the watermill where he joins the eleven other young journeymen who work there. Much to his surprise Krabat soon discovers that the mill is actually a school of black magic and he is expected to learn much more than just a normal miller’s trade.

Krabat studies hard and becomes the master’s star pupil, but when he falls for a local village girl the depth of the masters evil and the darker secrets of the mill begin to reveal themselves. One by one his fellow classmates perish from mysterious, unexplained accidents and Krabat realises he must use all of the dark magic skills he has learned to secure his escape.

Now a major motion picture starring David Kross (The Reader, War Horse).

Krabat

Review:

"One can expect from [Preussler] realistic novels full of the juices of life as well as supernatural shorter stories with a clear-cut yarn and construction." --"The New York Times "

"One of my favorite books." --Neil Gaiman

"In Preussler's masterpiece, the terror is real, the love sweet, and the suspense twisted tight." --J. Alison James

"One of my favorite books." --Neil Gaiman
"In Preussler's masterpiece, the terror is real, the love sweet, and the suspense twisted tight." --J. Alison James
"Like many of the classic children's books being reissued by New York Review Books, "Krabat & the Sorcerer's Mill "by Otfried Preussler has the potential to appeal to readers of various ages: nostalgia-seekers who enjoyed Anthea Bell's excellent translation when it was first published in the 1970s, and young aficionados of fantasy fiction who'll be happy to discover, in teenage hero Krabat, a worthy progenitor to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and Christopher Paolini's Eragon....For "Krabat," he drew on the folk tales he loved as a child, basing the book on a Wendish legend. But it is Preussler's own storytelling mastery and gift for atmosphere that render this Bildungsroman-meets-Gothic horror both timeless and splendidly, creepily original." --Emma Garman, "Words Without Borders"
