Ensel und Krete. Ein Märchen aus Zamonien

Ensel und Krete. Ein Märchen aus Zamonien - Walter Moers 4.5

It's Hänsel & Gretel on magic mushrooms - told by an insufferable omniscient narrator.

It seems to be one of Moers' least liked Zamonia stories; maybe it's a bit too far out there and too po-mo for many readers. However, it's my absolute favourite so far (I haven't read [b:Die 13½ Leben des Käpt'n Blaubär|62034|Die 13½ Leben des Käpt'n Blaubär (Zamonien, #1)|Walter Moers|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328569113s/62034.jpg|1482372] yet).
