The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a tall tale of majestic proportion, like the Baron himself. Munchausen twists wildly and whimsically, playing on the reader, the characters, and Baron Munchausen himself. There's a reason why this rare classic has become a part of our language - don't miss this one.
