Summary

A lost fantasy classic by the author of The Neverending Story.

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.

Author Biography

Michael Ende (1929–1995) was a German writer of literature, fantasy, and children’s books.

He remains one of the most popular German novelists of the twentieth century.
