Der satan­­archäolügenialko­höllische Wunschpunsch (The Night of Wishes)

Or: the Satanarchaeolidealcohellish Notion Potion

New Year's Eve is approaching. The sorcerer Beelzebub Irrwitzer and his aunt, the witch Tyrannja Vamperl, have not yet reached their target of evil deeds. Jakob the raven and Maurizio the tomcat witness how the pair of them come up with a sinister plan: With the help of the Notion Potion, the witch and sorcerer want to unleash disaster and catch up on their backlog. Maurizio and Jakob have only a few hours left to thwart their plans. Will they succeed? An exciting and funny listen for the whole family.

It is one of his funniest works and, with its tongue-twisting word creations, a challenge for every narrator: Michael Ende created the New Year's Eve classic par excellence with the "Satanarchaeolidealcohellish Notion Potion".

The big anniversary year 2019 brought lovers an original sound recording from the 1980s: The author reads himself and delights as an original and loving storyteller.
