Michael Ende, Momo
Illustrated by Marcel Dzama
The Neverending Story is Michael Ende’s best-known book, but Momo, published six years earlier, is the all-ages fantasy novel that first won him wide acclaim.
After the sweet-talking gray men come to town, life becomes terminally efficient. Can Momo, a young orphan girl blessed with the gift of listening, vanquish the ashen-faced time thieves before joy vanishes forever?
With gorgeous new drawings by Marcel Dzama and a new translation from the German by Lucas Zwirner, this all-new 40th anniversary edition celebrates the book’s first U.S. publication in over 25 years.
