Michael Ende - Momo PDF Download eBookOriginally published in German in 1973—the English translation was released a year after, Momo is one of the best fantasy novels written by Michael Ende. Winner of the 1974 Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (German Youth Literature Prize), the book is meant for young adult and kid readers but the substance, the moral message is indisputably relevant to more mature readers, especially nowadays. The story follows Momo, a poor little girl with a remarkable simplicity and talent: listening to people. From lending her ears and attention, Momo builds herself a life rich with friendship and love.
However, that wonderful life vanishes from the town when the sinister men in grey arrive. These men are among the most treacherous and life-destroying kind of people. These grey-men hypnotize the folks and silently take over the town with their Time Saving Bank. They lure the people to steal the one of most valuable thing in life: time. However, their tricks do not work on Momo, who cannot be tempted as she is content with what she is and what she has. Finally all the town people are “captured” by the men in grey and the only friends left on Momo’s side are Professor Hora and Cassiopeia, the magically gifted tortoise. Together, they will destroy the enemies that steal the life (and time) from the town and save the poeple.
