Michael Ende, born in 1929, was one of the most popular German authors of the 20th Century, captivating children with his extraordinary fantasy stories including Momo, an orphan girl's search for the meaning of time.

After attending drama school from 1948 to 1950, he worked variously as an actor, a writer of sketches and plays, a director of the Volkstheater in Munich, and a film critic for the Bavarian broadcasting company.

His first novel for children, Jim Knopf and Lukas the Engine Driver, was published in Germany in 1960 to great popular and critical acclaim, and both radio and television series based on the Jim Knopf books were soon produced. In 1973 he published another award-winning children’s novel, Momo.

When The Neverending Story was first published in Germany in 1979 it immediately became the number-one bestseller arnd remained in that position for three years. it has been translated into more than 30 languages, made into a hit movie in 1984, and remains a much-loved, international bestseller., and has enchanted readers in each country in which it has appeared. Michael Ende died in 1995.

Since the orginal publication of The Neverending Story in Germany - and its subsequent success on best-seller lists around the world - Michael Ende has become a veritable publishing phenomenon. The Neverending Story is his first book published in America. From 2003 through 2004, the German publishing house AVAinternational published six novels in a series called Legends of Fantastica. The novel was later adapted into several films.

"It begins when you become part of it, too...

Only once in a great while do stories come along that fulfill our deepest longing - our wish to experience true enchantment. The Neverending Story is such a fantasy: the magical tale of a lonely, solitary boy who steps through the pages of a book into a special kingdom.

There, in an imaginary land, on a special and dangerous quest, Bastian learns the true measure of his own courage. And learns that even he has the capacity to love.

A best seller in 27 countries - and in all languages of enchantment - The Neverending Story is coming soon as a major motion picture, directed by Academy Award nominee Wolfgang Petersen, and distributed by Warner. Bros."
