9780099472223: Rumo (Zamonia 2)

Astonishingly inventive, amusing and engrossing, Rumo is a captivating story from the unique imagination of Walter Moers. Rumo is a little Wolperting who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way across Overworld and Netherworld, two very different worlds chock-full of adventures, dangers, and unforgettable characters: including Rala, the beautiful girl Wolperting who cultivates a hazardous relationship with death; General Ticktock, the evil commander of the Copper Killers; Ushan DeLucca, the finest and most weather-sensitive swordsman in Zamonia; Professor Abdullah Nightingale, inventor of the Chest-of-Drawers Oracle; and, worse luck, the deadly Metal Maiden.

Review:

"Moers' creative mind is like J. K. Rowling's on Ecstasy" (Detroit Evening News)

"Moers' writing is alluring, to say the least. He writes with as much detail as he draws, and his vivid imagination is matched by his ability to pace a story and create interesting characters" (The State (South Carolina))

"Moers' drawings...are fantastic, in both definitions of the word, but what's truly appealing is the world that he creates in this marvelous tale of adventure and self-discovery... It's less a text and more an imagination on paper" (Philadelphia Inquirer)

"Parodic and sincere, slapstick and heart-tugging by turns, Moers's novel has fresh things to say on the nature of heroism and nobility" (Washington Post)

From the Publisher:

'Resembles a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Clive Barker with something of the yarn spinning facility of each' Guardian
