    DescriptionIn the wake of the phenomenal successes of Walter Moers's City of Dreaming Books, The 131/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear, and Rumo & His Miraculous Adventures, Overlook is pleased to offer Moers's fourth book, the tumultuous tale of a little boy who needs to defeat Death through a series of six impossible tasks. Moers bases his utterly delightful story twenty-one woodcuts by the inimitable Gustave Dore, the most successful illustrator of the nineteenth century.In a world between legend and dream, A Wild Ride through the Night describes the exhilarating and comic adventures of 12-year-old Gustave, a boy who aspires one day to be a great artist. When a disaster at sea puts Gustave in the uncompromising hands of Death, he has the choice to give up the ghost or take on a series of six impossible tasks. Always the fighter, Gustave embarks on a strange and perilous journey during which he must save a princess from the clutches of an angry dragon, pull a tooth from the mouth of the Most Monstrous of All Monsters, fly over the moon, and even, somehow, meet his own self. Will Gustave's creativity and imagination be able to save him from his own fate?
