It is 50 years to this day since Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver was first published – a reason to celebrate!
Back then, ten publishers refused the manuscript. Shortly afterwards, Michael Ende’s Jim Button had turned into a cult book loved by children and adults up to this day. “Happy Birthday, Jim Button!” says also the press. Here you can find some interesting links:
