Beim Bücherregalaufräumen gefunden, nie gelesen.
Jetzt gehts bald auf die Reise.

Clearing out my bookshelves I found this book, never read it.
Will send it out to travel pretty soon.

From Library Journal
In this comic fantasy a young writer-in-residence at Cornell University searches for true love and combats the forces of evil. Ruff uses the stock motifs of fairy tale and myth, but his treatment is remarkably inventive. Inspired by the mysterious Calliope, Ruff's hero learns to write without paper and thus, by the force of his imagination, to revise the mundane scenario of life in Ithaca. Aptly named S.T. George, he vanquishes a green canvas dragon and thereby foils the malignant plot of Rasferret the Grub. The multi-layered plot also includes animals who communicate by telepathy and tiny sprites with Shakespearean names. Ruff's exuberant tale will appeal strongly to readers with a taste for the fabulous. Albert E. Wilhelm, Tennessee Technological Univ., Cookeville

Bei KrazyKatz im Bücherregal untergestellt, als der Kater Geburtstag hatte. Mal sehen wann sie es finden ;)

Snuck the book into KrazyKatz's bookshelf, during a birthday party. I'm curious when they'll notice.

Super, das wollte ich schon lange lesen, und jetzt finde ich es in unserem Bücherregal. Ich glaube, das kommt bald ins Urlaubsgepäck.

Great, I always wanted to read this book and now I found it on our own bookshelf. I think it will soon be part of my luggage for the next holidays.
