1. The book that I read for my project is The Night of Wishes by Michael Ende. This book was first published in Germany in 1989 and it was first published in America in 1992. The Night of Wishes has 218 pigs. 2.
As the story begins it is New Year’s Eve and the Shadow Sorcery Minister, Beelzebub Proposteror is smoking his pipe. He knows that big trouble lies ahead with the coming of the New Year. As he goes around to check all of his potions he hears a cough. The man coughing is Maledict us Maggot, a man who worked for the devil and was there to give Beelzebub a mission to complete before twelve-o’clock midnight. 3. The story of The Night of Wishes takes place on New Year’s Eve in the Villa Nightmare, Beelzebub’s house, and at the Bell Tower.
4. In the Night of Wishes my favorite character is Jacob Riddle, a raven. His appearance is: small, losing feathers, and black. His personality is a nice one. He was mostly very nice to people and his friends and he is very funny at times.
In the story some things that are important to Jacob are: Morris, his best friend (who is a cat), saving the earth from being polluted and taken over and his wives. He says he has more than one because ‘well, you know there’s no relying on women. You have to get a good supply ahead of time.’ 5. The main problem in this story is that Beelzebub Preposteror and his aunt Madam Tyrannic Vampire lla are making a potion that will pollute the world by killing more than 10, 000 trees, polluting every river and ocean, to bring one new plague into the world every year, and to manipulate the climate of their country which will cause droughts and floods. 6. When the two animals find out about these evil tasks they sneak out of the house to try to get to the New Year’s clocks to ring them early (because all the potion that the witch and warlock make must be consumed by 12 o’clock midnight).
... eastern / oriental women. The Thousand and One Nights, also called Arabian Nights, begins with the story of King Shahriyar, who has learned that ... characters as Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Sinbad. The stories of the Arabian Nights are folk tales from Arabia, Egypt, India, Persia ... On The Frame Story Of The Thousand And One Nights) The Thousand and One Nights, a collection of about 200 stories, is probably ...
When they get to the bell tower they find out that no doors are open and that to get to where they want to go they would have to climb all the way up the side of the tower and at the time it is pouring down rain and very windy. They do finally make it up to the clocks but when they get in they find that father New Year had heard what they wanted to do. He thought they wanted to ring them early as a prank. They told him their story and he helped them by giving them something which will be talked about later in a different question. With all the climbing and the controversy it really made their problem harder to deal with. 7.
The final solution to the main problem is that father New Year gives the animals a music note from the New Year’s concert. He tells them that if they put it into the potion it will keep their first wishes and not reverse them (because the wishes were to be said in a nice way but they would turn out opposite so that no one would know what evil they were making).
The note worked and the world was safe. 8. In the very last scene everything is back to normal, except for the fact that the bird now had a full body of feathers and the cat can sing beautifully and speak fluent Italian. The two evil magicians wished those things and since the note was in the potion to not reverse the wish they got the good part.
As they are sitting on a bridge the cat says ‘Tutto e ben’ quell’ che finis ce bene… .’ which means All’s well that ends well in Italian since. 9. No, this book was not easy to read because there were a lot of weird names for different kinds of potions which were very hard to understand, hard names of sorcerers and magicians and lots of things that had to do with witchcraft and wizardry that I didn’t understand. 10. No, this story didn’t seem like something that could happen because animals cant talk, there is no such thing as a witch or a wizard, and magic isn’t real.
... a good harvest and luck. They value hard work, courage and strength. The main thing that caught my attention while I read ...
It is also hard to believe that the animals could form an army of spies called the High Council (both animals in the book were spying on their owners).
11. Yes, I would recommend this book. If you like fantasy books, adventure and some comedy than you would like this book. It has all the things that I like in a book and if you also like those things then this book is for you.
