Or, the strange story of the time-thieves
and the child who brought the stole time back to the people
Michael Ende 1973 265p 5 x 8
From the author that brought you The NeverEnding Story, this is the amazing young-adult tale of a little girl, who after discovering that representatives from the Time-Savings Bank have convinced everyone she knows to work more now to save time for later (rendering her friendless), goes on a mission to destroy them. Fucking awesome. Recommended to be read aloud while snuggling with friends by a fire in the depth of winter, or along a creek while playing hookie!
