It is hard to imagine the book shelves of big and small bookworms without the children’s stories by Michael Ende. The fairytale about the worn old Teddy Washable and his search for a child that loves him, will be published in a new edition by Thienemann Verlag in Autumn 2007. Lovingly illustrated by Cornelia Haas, the “new” old Washable will certainly also find a new home. The audio book CD to go with it will be published also in 2007 by DerAudioVerlag (edel).
In 2007 Piper Verlag will publish a new edition of Michael Ende’s popular anthology Das Gefängnis der Freiheit (The Prison of Freedom) Eight astonishing stories full of adventures and fantasy – magnificent, tender, sad and cruel – are presented in a new outfit. And once again readers all over the world have the chance to be enchanted by the spectre of fantastic imagination of the unforgettable word magician.
