Product Description

The first three books set in Zamonia—the mythical land created by the genius of Moers, whose work has been compared to J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams, and Shel Silverstein—have achieved raucous critical acclaim and created hundreds of thousands of die-hard fans here and all over the world. Now Moers returns with a fourth “relentlessly whimsical” fantasy (Library Journal).

When Echo the Cat’s mistress dies, he is compelled to sign a contract with Ghoolion the Alchemaster. This fateful document gives Ghoolion the right to kill Echo at the next full moon and render his fat, which he hopes to brew into an immortality potion. But Ghoolion has not reckoned for Echo’s talent for survival and his vast ability to make new friends.

Praise for the Works of Walter Moers
“Cheerfully insane. . . . Remains lively and inventive right through the final heroic battle between good and evil.”—New York Times Book Review

“Moers’s creative mind is like J.K. Rowling’s on ecstasy; his book reads like a collision between The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the Brothers Grimm.”—Detroit News and Free Press

“An overstuffed confection ... Cross The Lord of the Rings with Yellow Submarine, throw in dashes of Monty Python, Douglas Adams, Shrek, and The Princess Bride.”—Kirkus
