13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear
I finally finished this monster today. It was just a flat out enjoyable book, madly inventive in the best possible way, plus there were minipirates. It probably could have used to be a little shorter, but Moers seems to just have a runaway imagination. The story was never anything less than wildly creative at any given moment, and he apparently had enough left over ideas for a pseudo-sequel, Rumo and his Miraculous Adventures.
