Michael Ende

Writing about Cornelia Funke reminded me about Michael Ende – whom most people seem to know through the film version of the book “The Neverending Story”. I found this lovely version of the cover by Roswitha Quadflieg. I have not been able to find any other images by her.


from through the magic door

And an image of Michael Ende with a tortoise – there are quite a few tortoises in his books, like Morla the Aged One in “The Neverending Story” and Cassiopeia in “Momo”

    yes – I’ve got a copy in which the text is red and green as its supposed to be, with nice big drawings on the first page of each chapter. But I think by a different illustrator? I’ll check

    My praise to Michael Ende,
    because He wrote to send us Magic, imagination and hope.
    With lots of Love,
