Read full description of the books:
Everybody knows that to lie is bad. But Baron Munchausen used to lie with such virtuosity that his lying achieved the state-of-art quality and he is highly respected for this art all over the world.
“One evening I missed a bee, and soon observed that two bears had fallen upon her to tear her to pieces for the honey she carried. I had nothing like an offensive weapon in my hands but the silver hatchet, which is the badge of the Sultan’s gardeners and farmers. I threw it at the robbers, with an intention to frighten them away, and set the poor bee at liberty; but, by an unlucky turn of my arm, it flew upwards, and continued rising till it reached the moon. How should I recover it? How fetch it down again? I recollected that Turkey beans grow very quick, and run up to an astonishing height. I planted one immediately; it grew, and actually fastened itself to one of the moon s horns.”
I guess Baron had one bee too many in his bonnet…
The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen is capable to arrest attention equally of children and grownups and may be greatly enjoyed by both.
“We looked round, and now found the reason why the postillion had not been able to sound his horn; his tunes were frozen up in the horn, and came out now by thawing, plain enough, and much to the credit of the driver; so that the honest fellow entertained us for some time with a variety of tunes, without putting his mouth to the horn…”
The tale of the frozen music is one of my favourite…
Books are the sort of frozen music as well. We open them and the music of words thaws.

Read information about the authorGottfried August Bürger was a German poet from Molmerswende (now a part of Mansfeld), Principality of Halberstadt, where his father was the Lutheran pastor. Bürger's talent for popular poetry was very considerable, and his ballads are among the finest in the German language, of which Lenore, Das Lied vom braven Manne, Die Kuh, Der Kaiser und der Abt and Der wilde Jäger are famous. Few of his purely lyrical poems have earned a lasting reputation, though mention may be made of Das Blumchen Wunderhold, Lied an den lieben Mend, and a few love songs.
