Z really, really loved this. As did I as a read-aloud. ( )

German noble's amusingly outrageous adventures abroad.
160 B&W illustrations by Gustave Dore

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is one of those tall tales sort of books. However, in the Baron's case, these are pretty extreme, not just stuff about big fishes. He goes on and on about all the stuff he has got up to, where he has been, who he has been, what he has ruled, what he has invented, etc. It was all pretty dull though.

Baron Munchausen's astounding feats included riding cannonballs, traveling to the Moon, and pulling himself out of a bog by his own hair. The Baron's definitive visual image belongs to Gustave Doré, the artist famed for his engravings of scenes from the Divine Comedy, Don Quixote, and other literary classics. 160 black-and-white illustrations.
