Das Gefängnis der Freiheit (The Prison of Freedom)
(Stories of Wonders and Signs)
The short hallway of an imposing Roman Palazzo with an end that can never be reached; a grand villa with a wide, inviting gate that permits no visitor ever to enter the building; the turbulent story of someone who set off to learn amazement … Michael Ende tells us eight astonishing stories full of adventures and fantasy – magnificent, tender, sad and cruel. Once again, he shows the entire spectre of his magnificent imagination, which up to this very day casts a spell over his readers all over the world.

Destination of a Long Journey; The Hallway of Borromeo Colmi; The House at the Periphery; Admittedly Rather Tiny; The Catacombs of Misrain; From the Records of Max Muto, the Dream World Traveller; The Prison of Freedom; The Legend of the Signpost.
