Overlook Preview: A WILD RIDE THROUGH THE NIGHT by Walter Moers
Walter Moers, author of The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear, Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures, and The City of Dreaming Books, is back with a tumultous tale of a little boy and his encounter with Death - an utterly delightful story inspired by twenty-one woodcuts by the inimitable Gustave Dore, one of the most extraordinary illustrators of the nineteenth century. A Wild Ride Through the Night is a lively and inventive story for readers of all ages. On sale in September 2008.
