Walter  Moers - Princess Insomnia and the Nightmare-Coloured Nightmare


A dreamlike love story and an adventurous journey through the human brain

Princess Dylia, whose name for herself is "Princess Insomnia", is the most sleepless princess in the whole of Zamonia. One night she receives a visit from a nightmare-coloured nightmare, a scary but likeable gnome who introduces himself as Havarius Opal and announces his intention of driving her insane. First, however, he takes her on an adventurous odyssey through the world of thoughts and dreams – one that confronts them both with a succession of new and surprising twists and turns until they finally reach the dark heart of night.

A Late Romantic Zamonian tale filled with with bizarre characters, Princess Insomnia is recounted by Walter Moers with his own characteristic brand of humour. Exciting and involving.

"The entire book, not least because of its opulent get-up, is reminiscent of the deceased Michael Ende's bestsellers."
