Walter Moers is truly an artist. I've read as many of his novels as possible, and they always fill me with a tidal wave of emotions. At one point, I'm filled with joy, then crying my eyes out, then sitting on the edge of my seat, and finally running out of the room in a blur of pure terror. I also would reccomend reading the physical book first, if only for the pictures, which are, like the books, amazing. I hope 'Rumo' and 'The Thirteen and a Half lives of Captain Bluebear' are put out on the Nook shop very soon! (HINT HINT!)

A talking cat makes a deal with an alchemist when he finds himself homeless and hungry. In addition to eating like a king every day he gets to bear witness to the secrets of the alchemical arts as taught by a madman who may or may not be really all that bad. Care to find out?

I loved this book, I fell in love with the cat and all the characters, I didn't want it to end or I hoped for another book that told me more

Walter Moers is talented and Zany...I have read all the Zamonia Series I could get my hands on and find myself wishing he was a more prolific author. The stories are full of adventure, wit and creativity. Great for teenage boys into adventure/ fantasy novels but with a little maturity. I recommend that you read it in phisical book form because the illistrations (also done by walter Moers) are extraordinary and even though I see them on my nook they some times got broken up so you could only see a 1/4 of them at a time.

Echo is a unique creature; on the surface, he seems to be a talking cat. But, there's more to him than just the ability to talk. Echo can feel, think, plot, and, best of all, survive. When his mistress dies, leaving him starving in the cold, the alchemist-in-chief of Malaisea takes Echo in on one condition. Unfortunately for Echo, that condition means he will die. Ghoolian, the Alchemaster, is too self-involved to notice, however, that Echo is not going to lie down and die without a fight. This quirky story takes readers through the bizarre city of Malaisea, an extremely unhealthy place where sickness of both mind and body is common and the strangest collection of creatures lives side-by-side. As alchemaster, Ghoolian is feared and hated by the inhabitants of the town that he rules. His experiments are horrible and often result in death or disfigurement. Little does this renowned expert realize what he will do to his own lifestyle when he attempts to create an elixir of immortality with the fat collected from a crat (the unfortunate Echo being his targeted crat). Echo and his friends will delight readers as they meander through the streets of this sick, strange little town. Their stories and plots evoke laughter, tears, and outright disbelief as Walter Moers weaves this outrageously dark tale of survival and friendship. This is Moers' fourth book set in Zamonia. Readers who enjoyed THE CITY OF DREAMING BOOKS (2008), RUMO: AND HIS MIRACULOUS ADVENTURES (2007), and THE 13 1/2 LIVES OF CAPTAIN BLUEBEAR (2006) will get a kick out of this fourth individual book about Moers' creative world.
