A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011

This imaginative treat follows the eleven stories that an author floats out into the world to find their own true settings. Attached to paper balloons, each takes a different course as they fly across the countryside to find their own destinations. And gradually they start coming back to Bambert, their creator, even the eleventh which takes a long, long time. Each of Bambert’s stories is unusually imaginative and elegantly told.

Synopsis

Bambert's Book Of Missing Stories by Reinhardt Jung

Bambert lives alone in his attic home. He feels out of place in the world and finds solace in the characters he creates in his stories. One day, he decides to send his eleven stories out into the world, to find their own setting. He attaches them to paper balloons and sends them out on a windy night.

Reviews

The writing is superb, without a wasted word and tribute must be paid not only to the author but also to Anthea Bell who translated the book from the original German. The illustrations by Emma Chichester Clark have a much darker tone than those found in her own books but they set the scene beautifully. It's a book to read, to treasure and to return to time and time again.
