Si tratta del terzo volume ambientato nell'avventuroso continente di Zamonia. Figuratevi un armadio: i cassetti contengono, in ordine alfabetico, tutti, ma proprio tutti, i portenti e i segreti di Zamonia; ora osservate aprirsi il cassetto con la lettera "R". "R" come Rumo, adesso guardate dentro, fino in fondo... Prima che torni a chiudersi.

A Wolperting´s journey to find his true identity, many adventures, and some horrible surprises. Moers´puts loads of mythology and legends in this one, making the hero´s quest through different fantastical settings and switching between levels and styles of humor, from slapstick to some deeper ones an Leggi tutto
Moers may have become my favorite author. I picked this book up on a whim, off the sale table at Powell's, and it was stunning. I think it's a children's book, but it's the rare children's book that doesn't adjust the language to read at "a sixth-grade reading level" or sanitize any of the violence. Leggi tutto
I completely disagree with the Washington Post - Rumo is no mash-up of Rowling/Douglas Adams/Shel Silverstein, nor is it *silly*. Moers is like no one else I've ever read, I think I can safely say that he stands alone in his style of writing. This particular novel has more plotline than previous one Leggi tutto
Oh, my what a fun and crazy read this was. If you have a hankering for fantasy, comedy, and awesomely unsettling illustrations, combined in one amazing adventure then you have come to the right place. Right from the word go we are introduced to a little Wolperting (a dog-like creature) called Rumo ( Leggi tutto
Rumo the wonder pup is named after a card game. If I had to choose a card game name for myself I would go with “Solitaire”. Not as catchy of course, but maybe going by a shortened version of the name instead might improve it a little. THEM: “How is the girl book cave treating you Solly?” ME: “Not a ca Leggi tutto
Oh war das toll. Ich habs natürlich geschafft die Bücher komplett achronologisch zu lesen, aber das tut dem Ganzen keinen Abbruch. Bemerkenswert finde ich nicht nur die Fülle an Sub-plots und Geschichten in Geschichten die alle letztlich von Bedeutung sind, sondern auch die Tatsache, dass die unauss Leggi tutto
We should all have some Wolperting in us. Walter Moers is a magical writer.
The one of the great achievements of Rumo is that, despite being a book of epic proportions, never becomes a chore to read. There are many more to choose from: for example, the delightful illustrations by the author spaced throughout, the biazare flights of imagination, the varied and unique charact Leggi tutto
I picked this book up on a whim from the local used book store. A walking talking wolf thing wielding a dandelion knife possessed by a demon just sounded fun. The blurb stating the book was equal parts J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams, and Shell Silverstein seemed a little hard to live up to, but it was
This one those books that is a fantasy comedy that is so funny you wet your self ever scream out loud.
