Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unicorns, dragons, sprites, will-o'-the-wisps: the inhabitants of an enchanted world. And into this word—through the pages of an old book—ventures Bastian, a lonely boy of ten or twelve. But Fantastica is slowly decaying, its childlike Empress dying. Only a real human being can set things right by giving the Empress a new name. Bastian takes up the challenge, and finds himself crossing the Swamps of Sadness and the Silver Mountains, meeting sorcerers and giants, bats and night-hobs, gnomes and racing snails, as he journeys bravely toward the Ivory Tower. Bastian's quest is filled with all the wonders of myth and fairy tale. It is a fantasy adventure that will capture your heart—and recapture the magical dreams of childhood.

Synopsis:

Unicorns, dragons, sprites - the inhabitants of an enchanted world. Into this world, through the pages of an old book, ventures Bastian, a lonely boy of ten. But Fantastica is slowly decaying, its childlike empress dying. Only a human can set things right by giving the empress a new name.

Synopsis:

Small and insignificant Bastian Balthazar Bux is nobody's idea of a hero, least of all his own. Then, through the pages of an ancient, mysterious book, he discovers the enchanted world of Fantastica, and only Bastian himself can save the fairy people who live there.

About the Author

Michael Ende was born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, in 1929. After attending drama school from 1948 to 1950, he worked variously as an actor, a writer of sketches and plays, a director of the Volkstheater in Munich, and a film critic for the Bavarian broadcasting company. His first novel for children, Jim Knopf and Lukas the Engine Driver, was published in Germany in 1960 to great popular and critical acclaim, and both radio and televsion series based on the Jim Knopf books were soon produced. In 1973 he published another award-winning children's novel, Momo. When The Neverending Story was first published in Germany in 1979 it immediately became the number-one bestseller arnd remained in that position for three years. It has since been published in many different languages all over the world, including Japanese, and has enchanted readers in each country in which it has appeared.

If you want an enchanting read, that will keep you on your toes this is it. I believe it is for people of all ages. I was first introduced to the film as a child, and have loved it ever since.
The story of Bastian and the mystical world of Fatastica, is one everyone would enjoy. It has interesting creatures, adventure, and even good lessons for life. The book is even better than the film, because it's detailed so well.

This is one of my favorite books. I asked for it for Christmas, and I was told they didn't even make it anymore, so my friend's mother ordered a special copy for me. I saw the movie when I was little, and my initial motivation for reading was to discover the name that Bastian screams out the window. Upon reading, I discovered that the book was so much better than the movie. The ending was absolutely touching, and I love the passage in the beginning about weeping bitter tears when the reader must part with the characters. It was an absolutely amazing read.
