"Michael Ende was one of the few 20th-century authors able to satisfy vast child and adult audiences alike with rich works of fantasy."
Obituary in The Independent
"Like no other modern German writer of children's books, Mr. Ende's fiction inspired passion. Scholars called him the last German Romantic writer. (...) His stories are widely viewed by admirers as mythic parables of the human condition and as metaphors for an escape from a heartless modern society to an inner world to which children hold the key."
