The 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear : being the demibiography of a seagoing bear ... and excerpts from the 'Encyclopedia of the marvels, life forms and other phenomena of Zamonia and its environs, ' by Professor Abdullah Nightingale by Walter Moers( Book )
27 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Captain Bluebear is a bear with blue fur, a creature as unique as the fantastic adventures he undergoes. Unlike cats, which have only nine lives, bluebears have twenty-seven. This is fortunate, because our hero is forever avoiding disaster by a paw's breadth. In this remarkable book, Captain Bluebear tells the story of his first thirteen-and-a-half lives spent on the mysterious continent of Zamonia, where intelligence is an infectious disease and water flows uphill, where headless giants roam deserts made of sugar, and where only Captain Bluebear's courage and ingenuity enable him to escape the dangers that lie in wait for him around every corner. In company with our indomitable hero, we enter a realm of the imagination that combines the fantasy of "Lord of the Rings and "The Neverending Story with the humour of Baron Munchausen - a wonderland where anything can exist except boredom

"Malaisea is the unhealthiest town in the whole of Zamonia, home to Echo the Crat, a multi-talented creature that resembles a cat but is capable of speaking any language under the sun. When his mistress dies and Echo finds himself starving on the street, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster, Malaisea's evil alchemist-in-chief. This fateful document gives Ghoolion the right to kill Echo at the next full moon and render him down for his fat, with which he hopes to brew an immortality potion. But Ghoolion has not reckoned for Echo's talent for survival, and his ability to make new friends."--Dust jacket

The magnificently rebuilt city has once again become a metropolis of storytelling and the book trade. Yarnspinner encounters old friends and new denizens of the city-and the shadowy 'Invisible Theater.'"--Publisher's website

Ein Blaubär entführt den Hörer in eine Welt, in der Phantasie und Humor auf abenteuerliche Weise außer Kontrolle geraten sind.

Dramatische Klangbilder machen die Reise so plastisch, dass Finsterberge, der Große Wald, der Ewige Tornado, Atlantis und vieles mehr vor unserem geistigen Auge zu stehen scheinen

Das Labyrinth der Träumenden Bücher by Walter Moers( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Über zweihundert Jahre ist es her, seit Buchhaim, die Stadt der Träumenden Bücher, von einem verheerenden Feuersturm zerstört worden ist. Der Augenzeuge dieser Katastrophe, Hildegunst von Mythenmetz, ist inzwischen zum größten Schriftsteller Zamoniens avanciert und erholt sich auf der Lindwurmfeste von seinem monumentalen Erfolg. Er gefällt sich im täglichen Belobhudeltwerden, als ihn eine verstörende Botschaft erreicht, die seinem Dasein endlich wieder einen Sinn gibt. Verlockt durch einen rätselhaften Brief kehrt Hildegunst von Mythenmetz nach Buchhaim zurück. Die prächtig wiederaufgebaute Stadt ist erneut zur pulsierenden Metropole der Literatur und zum Mekka des Buchhandels geworden und wird durchströmt von Buchverrückten aller Art. Dem Rätsel auf der Spur gerät Mythenmetz, kaum hat er die Stadt betreten, in ihren abenteuerlichen Sog. Er begegnet alten Freunden wie der Schreckse Inazea Anazazi, den Buchlingen Ojahnn Golgo van Fontheweg, Dölerich Hirnfidler und Gofid Letterkerl, dem Eydeeten Hachmed Ben Kibitzer, aber auch neuen Bewohnern, Phänomenen und Wundern der Stadt, wie den mysteriösen Biblionauten, den obskuren Puppetisten und der jüngsten Attraktion Buchhaims, dem "Unsichtbaren Theater". Dabei verirrt sich Mythenmetz immer tiefer im "Labyrinth der Träumenden Bücher", das geheimnisvoll und unsichtbar die Geschicke Buchhaims zu bestimmen scheint. Bis er schließlich in einen unaufhaltsamen Strudel von Ereignissen gerät, der alle Abenteuer, die er je zu bestehen hatte, in jeder Hinsicht übertrifft
