I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Die 13½ Leben des Käpt’n Blaubär

Cover of Die 13½ Leben des Käpt’n Blaubär.

This is where Moers proved he was a wizard. It’s not his best book, but it’s absolutely outstanding nevertheless. The tour through the 13½ lives of Cpt Bluebear is amazing, astounding, sparkling with fantastic ideas as if it had been written by 13 creative geniuses instead of just one.

It’s a good book is what I’m saying.



Heute muss das Eisen schmilzen
Heute wird der Gang gebohrt
Frisch hinweg mit Schimmelpilzen
Graben ist das Zauberwort!
